Mika has claimed that he wrote the final song that Stephen Gately recorded with Boyzone before he passed away last month.

The 'Rain' singer revealed that he often writes material for other acts under a different name.

"I wrote a song which Boyzone then recorded," he told BBC Breakfast. "I think it was the last thing Stephen Gately recorded before he passed away.

"We're waiting to see what happens with that. I think they're putting together something.

"I write songs for other people under different names most of the time. I have a little family of three names. One of them has been discovered - it's Alice. I feel like I can step into an alter-ego, it's more fun. I like writing songs and a lot of them aren't necessarily for me."

Mika recently revealed that he struggled to write material for his second album The Boy Who Knew Too Much, admitting that he was worried it would sound "boring".
