The former Westlife singer got engaged to Danielle Parkinson- who gave birth to their daughter Ruby in May - in 2019 and initially planned to tie the knot this year, but made the call last year to delay until 2022 because of the coronavirus pandemic, and with the situation still uncertain, they’ve now pushed it back for a second time until 2023.

Speaking to OK! magazine, he said: “We’ve moved it again. We were meant to get married in South Africa this coming January but with Covid and Ruby only being nine months old by then, it could be difficult.

“So we’ve put it bac another year to 2023.

“Ruby will be walking by then and hopefully the world will be in a different state, and people won’t have to worry about testing and isolating as we’re having 50 guests.”

When the wedding does go ahead, it will be a star-studded affair.

Asked if their royal pals Zara and Mike Tindall will be invited, Brian said: “Of course. Gemma [Collins] will also be invited. Then Keith [Duffy] is my best man.”

Zara and Mike welcomed their third child, son Lucas, into the world a few months before Ruby was born and the two couples have been exchanging parenting tips.

Brian – who also has two teenage daughters with first wife Kerry Katona – said: “They’re really good.

“They’re also delighted for us and sent us a lovely message, and we’ve spoken since both of the babies were born.

“We’re just so thankful that they put us in touch with [nutritionist] Simone, who put us on the diet which helped us get pregnant.”
