Getting married this year: Brian McFadden has announced that he is engaged to his girlfriend of eight months, Vogue Williams

Brian McFadden has revealed that he is engaged to his girlfriend of eight months, Vogue Williams.

The former Westlife star said that though their time together has been short, the intensity of his relationship with Vogue explains the swift engagement.

The 31-year-old broke off an engagement with Australian singer Delta Goodrem last year.

Announcing the news, Brian confessed in an interview with OK! Australia: 'It's early (to be engaged) when you think about how long we've been together, but not when you consider the amount of time we've spent together'

'We've literally spent every second of every day together for eight months now.'

The couple, who are both Irish, met last year shortly after Brian and his former fiancé Delta announced their separation on April 1.

The Westlife star had been engaged to Delta for three years. He was previously married to Kerry Katona.

McFadden went public with Williams just a month later, and proposed while he was on tour with Stevie Nicks in November.

The couple met in a Letterkenny nightclub and within weeks Williams flew to Australia to spend time with the Australia's Got Talent judge.

Brian has sworn that he will go about the engagement differently this time, stressing: 'I never really planned to get married then. Vogue and I are actually setting a date and we're actually getting married.'

Brian and Vogue plan to wed in Europe later this year.
