Mike reaches out to Brian McFadden

Earlier this month, former Westlife singer Brian McFadden revealed how Mike supported him after his fiancée Danielle Parkinson suffered two devastating miscarriages.

Appearing on Loose Women, Brian said: “There’s this girl in Dubai called Simone and she’s this dietary magician when it comes to helping people to get pregnant. Whether it’s through IVF or naturally.

“So Mike told me all about her and we got in touch with Simone and she basically changed our complete diet. Mike and Zara did it, and he swore by it.”

Brian and Danielle are now expecting their first child together.
