Boyzone singer Shane Lynch has revealed he has moved out of the family home after arguing with his wife during lockdown.

Lynch, 43, admitted he and wife of 13 years Sheena White have been “at each other’s throats” while cooped up inside due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Appearing on former Hollyoaks actor Paul Danan’s Morning After podcast, he said: “We have had difficult times and are going through difficult times right now in this isolation thing.

“I’m not even in my family home right now because me and her were at each other’s throats. It wasn’t a good time or a good space.”

Lynch and White have two daughters aged 11 and seven and married in 2007.

The Irish singer said the family was not used to him spending so much time at home as he is usually on tour.

“I’m usually on the road and for the first time I’ve spent three months in my house,” he said.

“All of a sudden I’m at home a lot. You find out things about relationships and it can be very difficult. It can be a struggle.”

Despite their struggles, Lynch, part of Boyzone alongside Ronan Keating, Keith Duffy, Michael Graham and the late Stephen Gately, said he hoped he could get back together with White.

“I’m praying every day me and my wife sort out our things and I get back to my kids,” he said.

“I pray the longer me and my wife are apart at this moment, during these difficult times, it builds a strongness so when we get back together life will continue to be amazing in the next 15, 20, 30 years.

“But I don’t know God’s plan. Just because I love her and I love my children, does that mean there’s something new for me in life? I don’t know. I have to wait my time.”
