Westlife’s Kian Egan has opened up about the very boozy night he had when the band famously performed at the nuptials of soccer star Wayne Rooney and his wife Coleen.
In fact, the boybander said he got so drunk at the celebrations that he had to be ‘carried out’ of the reception by security.
Kian’s night got even worse after he ended up getting sick in a bathtub. We can just imagine the hangover.
In a clip from The Jonathan Ross Show, Kian got candid about his drunken antics at the 2008 €6m wedding in Santa Margherita Ligure, Italy.
‘I definitely got a bit carried away,’ Kian said. ‘We started having a few drinks and before you know it you’re at the bar doing shots with one of Wayne’s cousins or something like that.’
He added: ‘I remember being carried out by our security and going back up to our dressing room in the hotel and vomiting into the bathtub.’
Kian said that apart from having one too many tipples and a sore head the next morning, the band had been thrilled to be asked to play at the wedding.
The lads revealed that they were surprised to find out that their superfan was Wayne and not Coleen. They said that at one stage in the night, the striker even took to the stage to join them in a rendition of one of their famous hits.
‘It was actually Coleen who booked us for Wayne as a surprise. We thought it was the other way around – we thought Coleen might be the fan,’ Shane Filan said.
‘(Wayne) came up and sang with us. He kind of rapped it. It was only a small wedding, I think there were 70 people at it. It was the smallest gig we ever did but it was fun.
