Former Westlife stool-botherer* Shane Filan has signed a solo deal with London Records.
That's a picture of him 'signing on the dotted line', above.
The news was 'trumpeted' on Twitter in the following way:

As you can see, today is Filan Friday. Please update your records.
But what did Filo have to say about it all?
Well, this: "I am so excited to be joining London Records, Universal Music and being back in the studio in London and Nashville recording new songs has been amazing. One of the things that pleases me the most about this record is that I've been given the opportunity to write my own songs. I’m so excited for people to hear them!"
Good old Louis Walsh, Shane’s manager, added the following: "This is a fantastic new deal for Shane, we are thrilled to be part of the team at London Records."
