Can you be in a world-conquering boyband and still be a bloke? We asked a former Westlife member, Shane Filan, to find out...
I did clay pigeon shooting. I fired a rifle actually, I kind of wasn't great at it, and it was really sore on the shoulder, you know?
This probably isn't great for a Bloke Test, but I love the smell of lavender. It kind of reminds me of my wife a bit and it just makes me really relaxed when I smell it…
I did, a navy one and it was pretty fucking cool! That was back in the day though. I don't wear them regularly now but I've definitely put on a trilby before…
I used to have a pair of maroon jeans. Most of mine are now are blue, black or grey, though. I do love a grey pair.
I'll have to go back to a long time ago. I could have had free tickets to the cinema or something. If I got a voucher for a restaurant I would bring my wife though, of course, yeah.
I've never actually hit anybody with a punch full whack. I've never been a violent person. I like talking my way out of things, but if I was going to throw a punch I wouldn't miss!
That's never crossed my mind. Not even when I'm singing You Raise Me Up, standing up on my stool.
I don't think I've ever gone up to a bar and asked for one, no. If I was going into a pub, I’d have a pint of Guinness. If I was going to bar, I’d probably get a bottle of Peroni, or if I was in a restaurant I’d get white wine.
Not really too many manly ones. ‘Shortie’ was one, back in the day. I used to be very small when I was younger. When I was 12 or 13 I used to be about 3ft tall, so everyone used to call me ‘shortie’.
Sometimes, I probably get a bit carried away with turkey, ham, lettuce, bit of onion, tomato. If you're having a fry up and you put sausage, bacon, eggs, pudding, tomato, like literally falling out all over your face, but it's still amazing.
My phone's in my jacket over there. I've probably got my credit card, my phone, and chewing gum. Oh, and a bottle of beer as well...
5-second rule innit? To be honest, if something falls on the floor, I probably don't eat it, I don't want the food that much. I'm a bit freaky when it comes to that, I’d rather just buy a different bar of chocolate.
Some of the nights out we've had at Westlife probably involved drinking out of like, cups and awards and stuff like that. We usually got quite drunk every time we went out. Back in the day, we used to drink a lot of vodka and Red Bull, that was our thing.
Yeah, I do, again, I'd be afraid I'd get quite sick if I ate it, but if it was the same day I'd be okay. One day after, I'd probably be okay, but if it's out of date out of date, probably not…
Alright, here we go, so the offside rule is basically, the forward can't be past the line of defence, when the ball is played behind the line of the fence, through to the goal. There could be a more technical term for it, but basically the ball can't be passed to the defender when the ball is played from behind the last line of defence.
