Former Westlife singer Brian McFadden has concerned fans after suffering an allergic reaction to a bee sting. The singer has been posting updates to his Instagram account.
Seeming to be in high spirits and appearing to take the mickey out of himself Brain posted a video of his very swollen face while singing along to the song 'Sexy and I Know It'. The video showed Brain with swollen lips, cheeks, and eyes after the sting.
He captioned the video: "Stung by a bee and got an allergic reaction!! Owning that look! Free Botox and fillers!!!!!" Due to the swelling Brain's speech was also impacted.
Many fans commented on the post, wishing Brian a speedy recovery, as the Manchester Evening News reports. One said: "Omg that’s awful hope you feel better soon! at least you’ve kept your sense of humour!" and another said: "Omg! I thought it was a filter get well soon."
A third added: "Oh my god Brian! I’m gonna bloody hunt that bee down ! Get well soon x" and "Looks so sore, hope it clears up soon x".
In another post Brian showed a timeline of his injury and how the swelling had gradually increased, starting with his lip and moving up his face. The star is now living in Rochdale after finding love with PE teacher Danielle Parkinson.
Brian was previously married to Atomic Kitten star Kerry Katona and Irish model Vogue Williams and became engaged to Danielle in 2019. In 2021 the couple welcomed a 'miracle' baby after suffering two miscarriages.
They told OK! magazine that they had turned to IVF after trying for a baby for two years. Danielle fell pregnant twice, but both ended in devastating miscarriages.
