Heroz of the bizarro boyband yarn
Iwant to take a moment to thank Boyzone. Not only did they give us ‘Key to My Life’, but they really have gone above and beyond when it comes to gifting the Irish nation with bizarro boyband moments.
They’ve had falling outs, got in brawls with P Diddy, and set up off-shoot and hybrid boybands, Keith ‘N’ Shane and BoyzLife.
They’ve become Panto Kings, featured on Love Island, Celebrity Big Brother, Cirque de Celebrité (that’s just Shane) and starred in a feature film once described as a “poor man’s version of Mortal Kombat... set in Trim” (I’m looking at you, Mikey Graham).
This week, another gem.
It’s been reported that a woman’s dream wedding day was ruined after Shane and Keith barrelled into her bridal suite the night before her wedding.
Apparently it was all a terrible, and completely innocent misunderstanding, involving mixed-up key cards but that didn’t ease bride-to-be Sarah Martinson’s pain.
“On my wedding day, I felt like a zombie... It ruined what was meant to be the most perfect day of my life,” she said.
I was sorry to hear that it had all ended so badly for Sarah. Having half a 1990s boyband burst into your room unexpectedly in the early hours of the night must be a bit of a shock to the system.
But surely this was a salvageable situation — she could have had a word with Boyzone’s management, and roped them into belting out a few ballads as she wandered down the aisle. Or get them to recreate that infamous Late Late Show performance at the afters. Either way, there wouldn’t have been a dry eye in the house. Wed-faced: Shane and Keith
