Honeymoon's over as Jen sings the blues for Brooks

IT'S straight back to the grindstone for newlywed Jennifer Maguire.

One of her first tasks as a married woman was to sing the blues about the Garth Brooks fiasco with her 2fm co-stars.

Funnygirl Jennifer gave her vocal cords a workout with a funny ode to the country star.

It details the sorer points of the debacle from the point of view of a disgruntled fan.

The Night That Garth Brooks Didn't Play is the name of the song from the Breakfast Republic crew.

As co-host Bernard O'Shea bemoans hotels that won't refund, Jennifer can be heard whooping country-style in the background.

The Garth Brooks saga gripped the nation as the licensing row with Dublin City Council escalated, resulting in Brooks pulling out of all five of his Croke Park concerts, but Jennifer missed all the fun as she relaxed on an exotic beach.

The former Apprentice contestant was on honeymoon in the Seychelles from where she taunted her Irish friends with a stunning snap on Twitter.

However, it wasn't all smooth sailing for Jennifer and husband Lou Zamparelli.

She told the Herald on her return that she almost flooded their honeymoon villa.

Tossing her bikini into the sink before jumping in the shower, she managed to leave the bathroom ankle-deep in water.

Luckily, the couple had a butler on hand, and he was glad of the mop-up task because Jennifer (34) admitted that they had no idea what to do with him during their stay.

Fresh from her romantic break, Jennifer looked relaxed behind the mike in the studio.

She reckoned she piled on the pounds during her honeymoon, but yesterday she made the most of her new role as a country singer.

Jennifer wed her half-Italian long-term partner at Castle Leslie, Co Monaghan, earlier this month.

Her luxury honeymoon marked her first real break from work in a long time, and the busy Baldoyle native made sure to make the most of it before getting back to the grind.
