A Westlife fan left her husband after he made her choose between the boyband and their marriage.
Holmes, who revealed she had eight Westlife tattoos that had cost her £1,100 and that she had also spent £30,000 following the band around the UK, claimed her spouse couldn’t handle her devotion to the Irish group.
She said: “I think he thought I was joking but he soon realised I wasn’t. I always get stopped in the street and he couldn’t hack the attention I was getting.
“The concerts take up a lot of my time and money. Westlife are a really big part of my life. I’m completely devoted to them and the tattoos are my way of showing my loyalty. I like to think I am their biggest fan.”
Holmes then went on to add:
It’s my only hobby. I don’t smoke, I don’t drink, so Westlife are my only addiction.
She also said she had been left distraught by the band’s recent decision to part ways, revealing: “When I heard they were splitting I was devastated. I threw my phone down and cried. I love them for the music – and they are quite hunky.”
Last month, Westlife revealed that they would split up after a ‘Greatest Hits’ arena tour in 2012. A source said: “There’s no bad blood in the band, they’re still great pals. But all good things come to an end and they are all keen to do their own thing.”
