Brian McFadden rushed to doctors with severely swollen face after allergic reaction

Brian McFadden has shared a video of himself singing with a severely swollen face after he was taken to the doctor with an allergic reaction.

Former Westlife singer Brian, 42, posted the clip of himself singing Sexy and I Know It by LMFAO before making a funny face to the camera to show the affects of his reaction to a bee sting. In the clip, shared on Brian's Instagram page, Brian is laying on a bed with his eyes, cheeks and lips suffering from swelling.

Explaining the reason behind his look in the caption, Brian made light of his look. He wrote: "Stung by a bee and got an allergic reaction!! Owning that look! Free Botox and fillers!!!!!" Meanwhile, fans commented to share the singer well wishes and react to his humorous caption.

One joked: "NOOOO WAY some girls pay a lot of money for that treatment". "Only you could make a joke out of a bee sting," another added. While a third said: "Omgggg feel better x".

Meanwhile, on Brian's Instagram story he re-posted a video shared by pal Brian Ormond, which shows the singer in the back of a car and giggling shortly after the bee sting incident. Brian is singing a hit from his former band I'm Never Gonna Say Goodbye as he giggles at the camera.

Writing on top of the clip, his pal explained the pair were making their way to the doctor as he penned: "En route to the doctor with @brainmcfadden [bee emoji] sting". It comes after Brian opened up on his regrets over missing moments in his children's younger years.

Brian shares Molly, 20, and Lilly-Sue, 19, with his Atomic Kitten ex Kerry Katona before the pair went on to split in 2006.

He has since moved on with PE teacher Danielle Parkinson, who he proposed to in December 2019, and together they welcomed a daughter in May last year.

Brian discussed his regrets of being away from his eldest two children due to tour commitments with Westlife.

He told Closer magazine : "I was only a kid myself when I had Molly and Lilly, and I was at the height of my career in Westlife then – we were literally working 365 days a year, and there was no FaceTime so I couldn’t speak to the kids, I could only see them when I came home."
