Former Westlife star Mark Feehily has set up a business selling coffee and crepes from a catering van.

The 34-year-old singer has revealed that he serves food and drinks from a van at festivals, and that it's been "going really well" so far.

He told 2fm's Eoghan McDermott: "People were flabbergasted at the fact that I was in the van making crepes. People kind of have this thing 'Oh, he was in Westlife a few years ago and now he's making tea'.

"It's my business and I love it, anything I get involved in I get involved 110%. A couple of Irish people came up and were like 'Wait a minute, what are you doing in a van?' I love festivals, so why not."

Feehily added that he is still working on solo material, saying: "Everyone thinks I just went back to my living room and sat down for the last few years. Just because people can't see you doesn't mean you're not doing anything.

"Not too long after Westlife finished I went back into the studio and made the decision to completely start from scratch.

"The music that I would come out with as an individual is quite different to Westlife."

Westlife parted ways in 2011 after 14 years together.
