After holiday break-up, Kodaline’s Steve feels lucky in love again
KODALINE frontman Steve Garrigan was left heartbroken when his girlfriend returned from holiday with an unexpected souvenir… a new lover.
The Big Bad World singer raised the bar for worst-ever break-up stories during an exclusive chat with GP.
‘I was in a relationship and my then-girlfriend said, “I’m going on holiday, I think we should have a break,”’ he recalled.
‘She came back two weeks later with a boyfriend,’ he added, quipping: ‘I kind of knew it was over’.
The Irishman admitted it took a while to get over the split: ‘It was pretty harsh but it obviously wasn’t meant to be.’
And fans will be pleased to hear Steve, 29, has since found love with TV presenter Diana Bunici. ‘She is beautiful and I love her a lot,’ he said.
The band — completed by drummer Vinny May, bassist James Boland and guitarist Mark Prendergast — have just released new single Follow Your Fire and are working with Ed Sheeran’s producer Steve Mac on their third album.
