The final of The Masked Singer UK 2022 saw Mark Feehily unmasked as Robobunny following a series of spellbinding performances.

The Westlife icon, 41, finished in third place, followed by runner up Charlotte Church as Mushroom, while Natalie Imbruglia as Panda stole the season 3 crown.

He also duetted with original champ Nicola Roberts in her Queen Bee costume, as well as giving everyone goosebumps with his rendition of Snow Patrol’s Run.

But, who is Mark when he’s not performing as Robobunny, and what do we know about his personal life?

Who is Mark Feehily’s partner?

Mark – full name Markus Michael Patrick Feehily – publicly came out as gay in 2005 during in an interview with The Sun.

At the time, he was dating British fashion photographer Kevin McDaid, who was also a member of boy band V.

The pair were engaged, but confirmed their split in 2010.

Mark is now in a relationship with Cailean O’Neill, which he announced in 2017, saying he had been in a relationship for four years.

He told RSVP Live: ‘I am going out with an Irish guy now, so it suits us both to be back in Ireland and our families are close by.’

They got engaged during their holiday on Hurawalhi in the Maldives, which they announced via Instagram in 2019.

Does Mark Feehily have children?

On October 3, 2019, Mark and Cailean announced the birth of their daughter Layla.

She was born via a surrogate in the United States.

Last year, the singer talked about his little one on Loose Women, sharing her first word and what he expects touring to be like as a dad.

Nadia Sawahla asked: ‘How different is touring going to be as a dad?’

Mark replied: ‘It’s going to be very different, I think there is going to be a lot more early mornings and a lot less late nights.’

‘Layla wasn’t born the last time we were on tour, she was born just afterwards.

‘We were getting ready for her to arrive while all the last gigs were happening, but all the lads had their kids on that tour,’ he said, as his bandmates are all dads too.

‘It was such a pleasure going into the catering room every evening and we sat on this massive table with all the kids, and just sat back and let them entertain us.’

He added that Layla ‘loves music’ and revealed that her first word was ‘snow,’ which she said out of nowhere.

‘But she is the absolute apple of our eyes, she’s changed our lives, we couldn’t be happier,’ he said lovingly.

What are Westlife’s most famous songs?

Mark is best known for being 1/4 of Westlife.

Westlife are an Irish boy band, formed in 1998 in Sligo, Ireland.

Alongside Mark, the group currently consists of Shane Filan, Kian Egan, and Nicky Byrne.

Westlife are one of the most successful groups of all time in the UK, holding 14 number one singles, a number only surpassed by The Beatles and Elvis Presley.

They disbanded in 2012 before reuniting in 2018, much to the delight of fans.

Some of their most recognisable tracks include Uptown Girl, You Raise Me Up, Flying Without Wings and World Of Our Own.

Their most recent single was titled My Hero, following their powerful performance on the 2021 Pride of Britain Awards.
