Markus Feehily laughs at people who think he quit Westlife and started selling tea from the back of a van.
The 'Love is a Drug' singer has a sideline business in the hospitality industry but thinks it's funny that it's been portrayed as being his main career now the group are over.
He told BANG Showbiz: "The star of the show is the van. It's not a catering business really. It made me laugh when they made it look like I played to 90,000 people at the end of Westlife and got a job selling tea in the back of the van. We bought a 1950s vintage van and we had it refurbished and kitted out and sell cocktails, Prosecco and hot chocolates and crepes at Christmas. We just got this van and went round festivals."
Now a solo artist, he can't understand people who think once you are famous you can only be known for one thing.
He explained: "It's funny the way people think you can only be one thing, like you can't do two things at the same time. For me you can do many things at the same time. I'm a singer but at the same time I love other things.
"I had a bit of time over summer when there wasn't much happening and I wanted to do something that was a bit of fun and that's what the van was."
