Friday Eire Edition
BRIAN McFadden is on course to crack America after TV bosses picked one of his songs as the new Lost soundtrack.
The cult telly drama has a global audience of tens of millions and being linked to it could save former Westlife singer's sinking career.
Producers fell in love with the lyrics and tune of the track Demons, from the 26-year-old's album Irish Son.
The words are perfect for the RTE 2 show, which follows the surreal experiences of 48 air crash survivors.
The passengers must learn to fend for themselves amid the bizarre happenings on a deserted island.
It stars Matthew Fox as Dr Jack Sheppard and Evangeline Lilly as Kate Austin, pictured below.
And in Demons Brian sings: "Have you ever been lost in a different world, where everything you knew is gone?
"And you find yourself powerless? With everything that exists, you're numb. Will I ever break free?"
Speaking on ITV's This Morning show yesterday Brian said: "We got a video the other day where they have combined my music video with some action scenes from Lost. "And they're going to release it in America, which is great."
Brian has had more publicity recently for this relationship with his estranged wife Kerry Katona than for his music.
The pair, who have two daughters Molly, five, and three-year-old Lilly Sue, have had countless public spats.
Last week Kerry, also 26, hit back at Brian after he claimed she cheated on him with dancer Dan Corsi during their marriage.
But speaking yesterday, Brian spoke only of his happiness with new love Delta Goodrem. He said: "I've never been happier. We are madly in love, and she's my best friend too."
