Lead singer with the defunct Irish boy band ‘Westlife’.
Just a few years ago Mr Filan was living the high life.
He was driving expensive sports cars, staying in the best five-star hotels and flying all over the world.
Today he is as poor as a church mouse gnawing its way through the prayer kneelers.
His million-pound lifestyle blew away in the Irish financial ill-wind and this has ‘bankrupted’ him.
So if Shane wants to fly anywhere in the world now, he can only afford to do so ‘without wings’.
