Kian says he has dated a couple of fans in the past, and for a while he dated Jessica Forsman,
26. Jessica was a dancer on Westlife's first UK tour and the couple are pictured below together at a Newcastle United football
match on Saturday 26th April 2002.
Kian is now dating Jodi Albert, actress in UK TV soap 'Hollyoaks' and former singer in girl band 'Girl Thing'. Kian
met Jodi while on tour three years ago when she was in Girl thing. They quickly became mates but it's not until last May at
a charity soccer match that the romance blossomed, At first Kian tried to play down speculation, “We’ve been good
mates for years and now we’ve started dating” he said recently, “We know each other well and I know she’s
not just interested in me because I’m in Westlife.” Up until last month (July 2003) Kian was still adamant that
the two were seeing each other casually, “Its true that’s I’ve been out with Jodi on a couple of dates but
the whole thing has been blown out of proportion he claims,”We enjoy each others company and we have a lot of fun but
we are taking it very slowly, Its much to early to say we’re in love but who knows where it ill go? There was a report
trying to make out that we were having this big long secret relationship and we were going out with each other for months
and were seriously in love I was like ‘whoa chill out’ this isn’t the way things are, sometimes things like
that gets frustrating” [taken from news report, 21st August 2003] Kian is pictured below with Jodi at Nicky's wedding,
9th August 2003. His first kiss
: was when he was nine - round the back of the Mervin community centre in Sligo!Fave one-liner:
Don’t use any Romantic move (eg. flowers):
Too many to give away!
"A few months ago I was always asking Louis, 'When are we going to do this, when are we going to do that?'
and he said, 'Look Kian, in a year's time you'll be asking me, 'When will we have a day off?'!"
- Kian, April 1999
days are gone when you could just put five good-looking lads on stage and that'd be it. You need to be so talented and that's
why we'll make it"
- Kian explains why Westlife'll be the next big band
"When I broke up with my first serious
girlfriend I was absolutely gutted. One night I was at this club, and of course, my ex-girlfriend was there. After a few drinks
I got a little emotional and I ended up just slumped in a corner crying my eyes out all night."
"I was in a holiday
centre where this event called the Community Games was taking place. It must have been around midnight and I was sitting on
this railing out on a balcony which was a bit wet. Next thing you know, my foot slipped and I fell back. Luckily enough my
foot got caught in a clothes line which broke my fall. I fell head first about two storeys and I was still knocked unconcious
with a dislocated shoulder. Who knows what would have happened without that washing line?!"
- Kian describes how his life
was saved by a washing line
"Nicky's terrified about being stuck in a lift so I'm always dragging him into them, jumping
up and down, pretending its stuck, anything just to freak him out! Actually... I torment Nicky about most of his phobias!
"I'm only learning to drive, so there's no point in buying a BMW. I've already bashed the Fiesta off the pillars of
the gate at home."
- Kian on why he refuses to ditch his £500 Ford Fiesta
"I did pierce my ear once when I was
at school, but I did it with a pin and it really, really hurt!"
"I wouldn't mind maybe having a small one, trouble
is, I can't decide which design to choose!
- on getting a tattoo
"Shane's the best at Mortal Kombat, but I'm the
king of football games!"
- Kian on who's best at Playstation games
"It would be easy to have a girlfriend in the
business. She'd know how to cope with the life,"
- On having a celebrity girlfriend
"I just want a girlfriend,
full stop. I'm 19 years of age. I'm red blooded - I need some, you know!"
"...it's very hard to describe yourself.
I'm quite serious when it comes to the band, I'm dedicated to my work. I love what I do and I make sure everybody loves what
"I'm pretty ridiculous when it comes to buying clothes. I'll get 10 different leather jackets if I like
them. Me and Nicky go into shops and say we'll have that one, that one, that one and that one, and those trousers over there.
You feel guilty when you buy 10 £1,000 jackets and then go next door to buy a diamond ring. My father works really hard for
an electricity company and if he found out I was spending money like that he would go mad."
-Kian on his extravagant shopping
"When I was 12 I wrote a note to myself which said, 'I'm going to be a millionaire by the time I'm 21 - by
Kian Egan.' My parents have still got it."
"It said in the paper that I was a stripper - not true!"
Bryan on Kian: "He turns into Leonardo DiCaprio
for half an hour when he´s chatting a girl up"
"Kian annoys me in the morning - he shouts at me to wake up, and even
threw water over me once! I hate it."
- Shane on Kian
"I always wanted to be in a rock band and practised at home.
Now I have bought myself a little Christmas present from America. It's a Fender Strat guitar and it's beautiful. Every Christmas
me and my brother get together and form our own rock band.. He plays bass and I play guitar. There are seven children in my
family and all of us play an instrument of some kind so it's in the genes."
- It was a noisy Christmas in the Egan household

clothes that have dragons on them
Kian has said he wants to either a concert pianist or a big-wig Disney boss if his
pop career fails. He's reported to have considered his options when Westlife launched their career in 1999 - just in case
they weren't successful - and revealed "I'd definitely still be in the entertainment industry if Westlife hadn't been successful.
"I was actually hoping to go to college to try and become the head of entertainment at Disney World. "Either that or be a
