Westlife’s richest member Kian Egan has huge net worth and stunning family manor

Westlife are back with new music and a stadium tour this year, but Kian Egan has hit the headlines for his mega net worth.

The supergroup are one of Ireland's most successful bands with them selling over 55million records over the years.

The band was formed in 1998 and were managed by X Factor judge Louis Walsh.

The full band includes Nicky Byrne, Shane Filan, Kian Egan and Mark Feehily, and initially also included Brian McFadden.

Their net worths are thought to be extremely high, but according to Nicky, none of them are "absolutely minted".

He previously told the Irish Independent: “We have all lost money. We were all very foolish with money in the early days, we all bought cars and watches – the silly things.

"I don't think any of us were lucky. We did very well out of Westlife but everybody lives and spends. In the early days we earned great money, and in the latter days it was all gone.”

Shane had the worst luck when his attempt to get into the property development market went south due to the recession, RSVP reports.

The singer's company, Shafin Developments, was forced into going bust after they borrowed from the Bank of Ireland and Ulster Bank. He was later declared bankrupt in 2012.

It was reported by the publication that his debts reached €23m (£19.4m) and at one point he had only a few thousand Euros left in his bank account.

However, that has all been cleared and he is now worth an estimated €2.9m (£2.4m).

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Kian is the richest member of the iconic band with a huge net worth of €23.7m (£20m).

Before joining Westlife, Kian was in a rock band called Skrod which he joined in 1997.

He now lives with his wife and former Hollyoaks star Jodi Albert, and their three sons, Koa, Zeke and Cobi.

The family all live together in a lavish mansion in Strandhill in Sligo, Ireland.

The family take full advantage of their seaside home and often take trips to the beach together and enjoy breathtaking views of the scenery from their floor-to-ceiling windows.

The house is also perfect for entertaining guests and has a fully stocked bar and a piano where friends and family can give a musical ensemble a crack.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, the other members Mark and Nicky are worth €15m (£12.6m), and between €1m and €5m (£800k – £4.2m) respectively.
