Westlife singer Mark Feehily has dismissed rumours that he plans to marry his gay partner

The gay artist met his partner, a member of former boy band V, Kevin McDaid, last year, and despite being engaged, insists there are no wedding bells yet.

He told the Irish Independent, “There are no wedding plans. There was never any wedding plans, it was totally picked out of the sky.

The star highlighted Canada, where gay marriage is legal, as an ideal holiday destination, but said he would not go there to get married, “I might go to Canada for a holiday, who knows, but not to get married.

“I may get married one day, but there is no notion or plans now.”

He was speaking with fellow band mates at an event to raise money for Irish Autism Action.
