Shane Filan heading to TV with revealing documentary

07/09/2013 09:34

Pop star Shane Filan is making a move into TV after documenting his last days with Westlife and his new career as a solo artist for a 60-minute show.

The Irish singer is hoping to bounce back from bankruptcy with his debut solo album, and took a camera crew out to Nashville in the U.S. to catch the whole recording process on tape.

Shane was also filmed as his time with his chart-topping band came to an end, and admits fans will see his struggle to find his way during the programme.

He tells the Daily Star: "I spent two weeks out there and had a documentary crew filming as I was writing... A 60-minute documentary on the last day of Croke Park (Westlife's final show) then the day after with me talking to the camera and not knowing where my life was going.

"It's really good footage catching me how I was feeling at that moment, signing the record deal and the process of going through making the album."

And after his first single Everything To Me limped into the charts at a disappointing number 14, it looks like the small screen may be where Shane's future lies.

In a bid to boost his profile, his manager Louis Walsh has hired Shane to be his adviser when The X Factor contestants go to Judge's Houses.

A source tells the Irish Herald: "Shane is lucky he has a manager who's a judge on the biggest TV in Britain.

"Shane is an extremely likeable presence on screen and will have great advice to give to any young boyband from his experience with Westlife."
