When Westlife announced they were splitting up last month, hearts were broken up and down the country.

Such has been the devastation that the break-up of one of the most popular British boybands in recent times has led to a woman splitting up with her husband.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Jane Holmes, who has been a fan of the Irish crooners since they first emerged in 1998, said she was given an ultimatum by her husband: "Choose Westlife or me."

After a year of marriage, Mrs Holmes walked out on her husband Norman.

"I think he thought I was joking but he soon realised I wasn't. I always get stopped in the street and he couldn't hack the attention I was getting," she said.

"The concerts take up a lot of my time and money. Westlife are a really big part of my life. I'm completely devoted to them and the tattoos are my way of showing my loyalty. I like to think I am their biggest fan."

She added Westlife were her hobby, explaining that she didn't smoke or drink and Westlife were her "only addiction".

The 44-year-old woman has eight tattoos of the band and has spent close to £30,000 following them.

"We never imagined when we started out in 1998 that 14 years later we would still be recording, touring and having hits together. It has been a dream come true for all of us," the band said after announcing they were breaking up.
