Former Westlife singer Mark Feehily now selling crepes and coffees from a CATERING VAN

Former Westlife singer Mark Feehily is now selling crepes and coffees from a CATERING VAN.

The singer now serves hot food and drinks from the back of a truck as he travels round festivals with his new business.

However, he hasn't given up on music completely.

Mark told Today FM's Eoghan McDermott, via website goss.ie: "It's going really well, we've got loads of interest and we've booked it in with a lot of the music festivals and we're talking about doing some Irish ones as well."People were flabbergasted at the fact that I was in the van making crepes.

Mark is now selling snacks &coffee from a catering van. That's him in the van.
"People kind of have this thing 'Oh, he was in Westlife a few years ago and now he's making tea'."
Well, we're a tad shocked too.

He added: "It's my business and I love it, anything I get involved in I get involved 110%.

"A couple of Irish people came up and were like 'Wait a minute, what are you doing in a van?'

"I love festivals, so why not?"

He said while he started on crepes, he will be focusing more on selling cocktails and tapas in the future.

He recognised it would be a shock to many, who imagined he would carry on singing - and now he's launching his solo career too.

"Everyone thinks I just went back to my living room and sat down for the last few years," he said.

"Just because people can't see you doesn't mean you're not doing anything."

"Not too long after Westlife finished I went back into the studio and made the decision to completely start from scratch.

"The music that I would come out with as an individual is quite different to Westlife."
Westlife announced their "amicable" split in October 2011 after 14 years together.

During their career, they notched 26 top 10 hits.

For many years, the group were managed by X Factor judge Louis Walsh.

They even survived the departure of founding member Bryan McFadden to continue seamlessly as a four-piece.
The band notched up 11 top five albums - seven of which have gone to number one - which have together sold 44 million copies around the world.
