For those of you not in the know, chick-lit author Cecilia Ahern is Nicky's sister-in-law, and her first book - PS, I Love You - is about to be released as a movie. Of course they're Americanising it, with Hilary Swank, Gerard Butler, Harry Connick Jr, Lisa Kudrow, Kathy Bates... arh, just check out the imdb page here.
In Westlife-related news, an article appeared in Sunday World about the movie, talking about the test audience's reactions, the upcoming premiere and the usual crap about how she's related to Nicky and her dad's the prime minister.
With that, however, was a bit about how a Westlife song might appear on the soundtrack, seeing as, you know, her brother-in-law's in the band and everything.
While it seems a bit creepy and hanger-on for the lads to be putting their song in a relative's movie, it's about bloody time the lads did something decent to get themselves recognised in the U. S. of A. And I don't mean that the US is some big beacon of golden light that leads to immortalisation in the musical hearts of everyone they come across - they are a boyband after all - it's just that, after all their apparent desperation, their attempts have been a bit...
...well, a bit half-arsed.
And now, especially with kids restricting how much time they can spend buggering off overseas with their wild dreams, this might just be the ticket they need.
But let's wait and see.
