The Masked Singer UK 2022 finale saw Mark Feehily unmasked as Robobunny after a series of spellbinding performances.
The Westlife icon, 41, finished in third place, followed by Mushroom as runners-up while Panda stole the Season 3 crown.
He also dueted with original champion Nicola Roberts in her Queen Bee costume, while giving everyone goosebumps with her rendition of Snow Patrol’s Run.
But who is Mark when he’s not playing as Robobunny, and what do we know about his personal life?
Who is Mark Feehily’s partner?
Mark – full name Markus Michael Patrick Feehily – came out publicly as gay in 2005 during an interview with The Sun.
At the time, he was dating British fashion photographer Kevin McDaid, who was also a member of boy band V.
The couple were engaged, but confirmed their separation in 2010.
Mark is now in a relationship with Cailean O’Neill, which he announced in 2017, saying he had been in a relationship for four years.
He told RSVP Live: “I’m dating an Irishman now so it’s fine for both of us to be back in Ireland and our families are close by.”
They got engaged while vacationing at Hurawalhi in the Maldives, which they announced via Instagram in 2019.
Does Mark Feehily have children?
On October 3, 2019, Mark and Cailean announced the birth of their daughter Layla.
She was born via a surrogate mother in the United States.
Last year, the singer opened up about his baby on Loose Women, sharing his first word and what he expects from touring as a dad.
Nadia Sawahla asked, “How will touring be different as a father?”
Mark replied: “It’s going to be very different, I think there will be a lot more early mornings and a lot less late nights.”
“Layla wasn’t born the last time we were on tour, she was born right after.
“We were preparing for him to come while all the last shows were going on, but all the guys had their kids on this tour,” he said, as his bandmates are also all dads.
“It was such a treat to walk into the food hall every night and we sat at this massive table with all the kids, and we just sat down and let them entertain us.”
He added that Layla “loves music” and revealed her first word was “snow”, which she said out of nowhere.
“But she is the absolute apple of our eye, she changed our lives, we couldn’t be happier,” he said lovingly.
What are Westlife’s most famous songs?
Mark is best known for being 1/4 Westlife.
Westlife is an Irish boy band formed in 1998 in Sligo, Ireland.
Alongside Mark, the band currently consists of Shane Filan, Kian Egan and Nicky Byrne.
