Una Healy has revealed she moved house to be closer to her new boyfriend David Breen.

The Saturdays star previously lived in Northampton, where she shared a home with her former husband Ben Foden and their two children.

Following her split from Foden after six years of marriage, Foden has admitted she "just wanted to get out of that town" and has relocated to Birmingham be close to Breen, a former Limerick hurler and physiotherapist.

She told the Irish Daily Mail's You magazine: "We're not living together but we live down the road from each other so we see each other very regularly.

"I just wanted to get out of that town I was in so he introduced me to the town I'm in now and it's one of the most beautiful towns in the UK. I'm really happy there now.

"It's lovely because we're both ex-pats. We're both so Irish! We come back together a good bit and I just feel at home when I'm with him."

The 37-year-old singer said since she has moved she has enrolled her children, seven-year-old daughter Aoife and four-year-old son Tadhg, in new schools. She also shared that she has become friends with women in "similar situations" to her.

"I think it was nice when I moved house because it's a whole new scene. Tadhg has just started school so they are both in school, which is new as well", she explained.

"So we all have a new routine which I think is important. It just feels like a whole new era for me. It's exciting actually. I've actually met a few of the other mums at the new school who are going through a similar situation to me, so I know I’m not alone."

Healy added: "There are lots of other women out there in my position and we’re all in it together. You’d be surprised where you get the strength from but you have to for your children. You just carry on, you know.

"Life is not perfectly mapped out for anybody – we all come across bumps along the way. And obviously I had a big bump there but I’m really happy at the minute. I have adjusted, it’s taken a bit of time but I have adjusted to it now."

In August, Healy's ex-husband Foden announced that he had married his girlfriend Jackie Belanoff after just two weeks of dating.

In a lengthy Instagram post, he wrote: "This last year has been by far my toughest and most turbulent for a number of reasons that many of you I'm sure are aware of, in some way or another.

"The world has a funny way of working things out, many people think I'm a bad person - as I'm sure they'll be many nasty comments left under this post by keyboard warriors a plenty.

"But I met a girl who seriously swept me off my feet and in a time of hardship showed me love, a deep devoted love.

"People will say we are mad or crazy or even fools, as @snackyjax and I had only been dating seriously for a little over 2 weeks before deciding to get married. But when someone like her comes in to your life, why would I wait?"

Rugby player Foden and Healy had been married for six years before splitting in July 2018.
