Brogue to jet in for Christmas at home

SINGER Brian McFadden and Vogue Williams will spend their first Christmas as newlyweds in Ireland.

The former Westlife star (32) and the Howth-born model (26) -- collectively nicknamed Brogue -- are giving up the prospect of turkey on the beach in sunny Australia in favour of celebrating on the chilly shores of Ireland.

And they're looking forward to jetting back home to catch up with their family and friends following their intimate nuptials in Italy last September.

The smitten pair will be arriving in just before Christmas Day to spend time with their relatives in Artane and Howth.

"Vogue's a real home-bird at heart and as much as she loves Australia, she's very close to her family and to not spend time with them at Christmas just wouldn't have felt right," said a source. "It also gives Brian the chance to catch up with his two daughters so they're both really looking forward to it."



Boom

Shortly after walking down the aisle, the pair agreed to take part in a fly-on-the-wall-style documentary about life as newlyweds. Filming is expected to continue when they come back to Ireland.

Producers Straywave Media are hoping that the resulting show could be picked up both in Ireland and Australia once filming ends.

But while the pair are clearly besotted with each other, Vogue has ruled out starting a family with her other half anytime soon.

She was forced to take to her Twitter page recently to dispel rumours that she could be joining in the baby boom. Vogue stated: "No people I am not pregnant and don't plan on being pregnant in the near future."
