Brian McFadden wails through boozy bar performance as Westlife pack nearby arena

Brian McFadden has been filmed wailing through a boozy performance in a Belfast bar days after his former Westlife bandmates packed out an arena in the city.

The former pop singer, 39 hit the town in Belfast last night and couldn't resist hopping on stage to help a pub singer entertain punters at Benedicts Bar.

Mirror Online's exclusive footage shows Brian struggling to hit the high notes as he attempted to duet with the singer on Cranberries classic Zombie.

Party-goers appeared not to be paying much attention to the ex-Westlife star as he slogged through the song.

An onlooker told us: "He went into Benedicts and sang the Cranberries' Zombie.

"He bought everyone in the bar a drink then left after an hour. The girl was a performer in Benedicts. He came in, sat down, had a few drinks then just decided to get up and sing with her."

Brian's impromptu performance in Belfast came 48 hours after his former bandmates packed out the largest venue in Norther Ireland, the nearby SSE Arena.

The band played for around 10,000 fans at every show on the five-night residency in Belfast.

The shows are part of the boyband's Twenty Tour, celebrating the band's 20th anniversary, but it's gone ahead without original member Brian.

He quit Westlife in 2004 and went on to launch a solo pop career before eventually turning to work in the world of reality TV.

Brian's since worked on shows including Australia's Got Talent, dance show Stepping Out, The Jump and Dancing On Ice.

Westlife are back together after previously disbanding in 2012, with Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Markus Feehily and Shane Filan joining forces for the big budget arena tour.

The Twenty Tour sold an incredible 400,000 tickets in the first 48 hours onsale.

Demand has been so great that a special live broadcast to cinemas around the UK from their Croke Park show in Dublin will be screened on July 6.
