Boyzones Shane Lynch says he wont be performing with band again as he quits showbiz

Boyzone icon Shane Lynch has revealed he is definitely done with showbiz as a whole as he declared he will never be performing with the band again.

The Dublin star, who was part of one of the biggest 90s boybands, which consisted of lead singer Ronan Keating, Keith Duffy, Mikey Graham and the late Stephen Gately, has decided to move away from life in the spotlight for good.

After announcing last year that he'd already taken a step back from fame due to the toll it was taking on his personal life and his family, the 46 year old singer admitted he was "very happy" not be involved in "that world" anymore.

Now the family man, who has been married to actress Sheena White since 2007, apart from a brief split during the coronavirus pandemic, has shed light on his permanent decision not to ever reunite with Boyzone.

“I won’t be performing with them again,” he told the Independent. “They might not know exactly. I haven’t gone to them saying, ‘Boys, I’m not coming back to the band.’

"I’ve just been very open that I’m out of the industry – music, TV and everything," the star went on.

Shane continued to say that he knew the band weren't bothered because he didn't even get a phone call to ask "what are you doing that for" after sharing his news.

"We’d no plans to do anything anyway," the singer said, but was still supporting the rest of the boys with any future plans. "They can absolutely crack on without me," Shane shared. "I love the boys, so I’ll watch them. Don’t be gutted."

The star said part of the reason behind his break away from the spotlight was due to age.

As he reached his 40s, Shane realised he couldn't just be "the same adult" for the rest of his life, and he needed to work out how to transition to other "head spaces" in his life.

For three decades, the pop star had embodied one particular "Shane Lynch" and he's grown tired of it.

Shane, who's been appearing on the BBC series Pilgrimage, which sees six celebrities trekking from Portugal to Fatima as part of a religious pilgrimage, will not be returning to TV for any other opportunities.

Insisting he's been living the same "repetitive lifestyle" until this last TV show, Shane decided he simply doesn't want to do it anymore.

"It's as simple as that," the star added.

Shane and Sheena share two daughters, Billie, 14, and Marley, 10.

Sheena and the girls often feature on ITV reality series The Real Housewives of Cheshire, but Shane remains away from the camera during filming.
