Brennan said that he and Gail Porter kept their relationship a secret back in 1997.

"I met her when she was presenting BBC show Fully Booked. We kept it all very hush-hush. She was a lovely, lovely girl," he told The Sun.

Talking about Jane Danson, he said: "I fancied her instantly. We chatted and within a couple of weeks I was staying with her at her mum and dad's house."

He added: "I had always thought Emma [Bunton] was gorgeous, so I was really happy I finally got to meet her when we both appeared on Live And Kicking just before Christmas 1997.

"I ended up going to a castle in Ireland with the Spice Girls and David Beckham for New Year. It was bizarre to get that peek inside their mad world. It was a proper whirlwind. They were all great girls and Beckham was a legend.

"I remember Emma and I going for a walk at midnight and there were no paps or anything so we were really relaxed, and I was teaching her the Bodyshakin' moves. It was a really fun romance but it just kind of fizzled out. Then she met Jade Jones, who she's still with now."

On his bandmates Jimmy Constable and Spike Dawbarn, he joked: "Spike and Jimmy slept with well over 1,000 women between them so One Direction have got a long way to go to catch up with us."

Brennan eventually married B*Witched member Lindsay Armaou, but they split several years ago.

He said: "She's an incredible girl. I suffered from depression after the band split and she helped get me through."

5ive, Atomic Kitten and B*Witched are among the groups involved in The Big Reunion, which is said to have an arena tour in the works.
