Boyzone star Shane Lynch moves out of family home and admits him and wife are ’at each other’s throats’ due to lockdown – The Sun
UNLIKE many singers, Shane Lynch is finding lockdown tough.
While the likes of Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams churn out shows on Instagram from their living rooms, Boyzone’s Shane has separated from wife of 13 years Sheena White after they struggled being cooped up, having also had “ups and downs” in recent years.
Shane revealed: “We have had difficult times and are going through difficult times right now in this isolation thing.
“I’m not even in my family home right now because me and her were at each other’s throats. It wasn’t a good time or a good space.”
Shane, who has daughters aged 11 and seven with former backing singer Sheena, says the couple found it hard being grounded by Covid-19 because they had been so used to him being away on tour. He says: “I’m usually on the road and for the first time I’ve spent three months in my house.
“All of a sudden I’m at home a lot. You find out things about relationships and it can be very difficult. It can be a struggle.”
Shane and Sheena tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Kent in 2007, eight months after he appeared on ITV show Celebrity Love Island. He quit the 2006 series early after realising Sheena was his “one true love”.
Now Shane, who was previously wed to Eternal lead singer Eather Bennett, is hopeful he and Sheena can get back together before too long.
He told ex-Hollyoaks actor Paul Danan’s Morning After podcast: “I’m praying every day me and my wife sort out our things and I get back to my kids. I pray the longer me and my wife are apart at this moment, during these difficult times, it builds a strongness so when we get back together life will continue to be amazing in the next 15, 20, 30 years.
“But I don’t know God’s plan. Just because I love her and I love my children, does that mean there’s something new for me in life? I don’t know. I have to wait my time.”
Fingers crossed they work things out.
Stay and play
ME stars had been criticised for moaning about being in lockdown in swanky houses but now a host of big-name musicians are coming together to do something positive.
Chris Martin, Dua Lipa, Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding and Paloma Faith are among the artists who have teamed up under the banner Stay Home Live Lounge to make a Band Aid-style charity single to raise money for people affected by coronavirus.
They have recorded a cover of Foo Fighters’ rousing 2003 track Times Like These, which will premiere across BBC radio stations at midday on Thursday.
An accompanying video will then be broadcast on BBC1’s The Big Night In that evening, with proceeds split between Comic Relief and Children in Need.
5 Seconds Of Summer, Anne-Marie, Bastille, Celeste, Grace Carter, Hailee Steinfeld, Jess Glynne, Mabel, Rag'n'bone Man, Sean Paul and YungBlud have also recorded for the track.
Dua said: “I’m excited for everyone else to hear it. It’s difficult times and all we can do is try to come together . . . and raise money and support the frontline workers during this time.”
Zayn stays away
LIAM Payne has revealed Zayn Malik won’t be involved in One Direction's ten-year anniversary in July. The Midnight singer let slip in this column earlier this month that they were planning a special project to mark the milestone. The story is circled below.
But he has now admitted that Zayn, who quit in 2015, hasn’t been part of the discussions. He also told how he is trying to organise a time in the coming days for a group conversation with his other former bandmates Niall Horan, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson about what they should do to mark the big date.
Talking to producer Alesso during an Instagram Live session, Liam told him: “Most of us are in London. We’ve been trying to arrange the first group FaceTime at the moment. You can come and fill in for Zayn. Join the band.”
However, Liam may be regretting his comments. He confessed Louis had given him a flea in his ear for spilling the beans in the first place.
Liam added: “I can’t say too much. Louis told me off for revealing a bit about our plans the other day. So I had a group telling off on the group chat.” That cat’s out of the bag now.
Searching for Troye love in OZ

The couple are believed to have quietly ended things in recent months and Troye, who collaborated with Charli XCX on Top Ten single 1999 two years ago, has left the home they shared in Los Angeles to be in his native Australia.
Troye hints at the split on his new track Take Yourself Home, on which he sings: “Happiness is right there where you lost it when you took the bet. Counting all the losses that you can’t collect. Got everything and nothing in my life.”
And in a recent interview Troye revealed his return to Australia came about after a tough time. He said: “I was just going through a really rough patch in my personal life. I did a couple of trips to Australia and realised how much happier I am here.”
