As loved-up Brian McFadden settles into his new life in Lancashire and Kerry Katona continues to reside in East Sussex, their eldest daughter is planning a big move.
Former Westlife singer Brian has revealed that 15-year-old Molly will move in with his parents in Ireland in September, so that she can study without distractions.
The 36-year-old told OK! magazine: ‘Mostly we go back to Ireland because my mum and dad live there. My oldest is going to school in Dublin in September, so she’s probably going to live with my mum and dad.

‘I think it’ll be easier for Molly to concentrate on her exams there. It’s going to make things harder now for us all to be together, but you have to make sacrifices.’
Atomic Kitten star Kerry, 36, who also shares 14-year-old daughter Lilly-Sue with Brian, lives in East Sussex with her husband George Kay and their daughter Dylan-Jorge, two, as well as Heidi, 10, and Max, eight – from her marriage to Max Croft.
Brian, meanwhile, recently made the move to Rochdale to live with his new PE teacher girlfriend Danielle Parkinson.

Late last year, it was revealed that Molly had picked up on her parents’ musicality as she was filmed performing a pitch perfect rendition of James Arthur’s Say You Won’t Let Go while playing along on the piano.
Proving to be the ultimate proud mother, Kerry uploaded a snippet of the performance to Twitter in November.
Taking things a step further, Kerry suggested her daughter would be the perfect choice to perform a duet with the X Factor winner and mentioned the idea to his manager, Simon Cowell.
Her comment was in response to the the music mogul’s earlier tweet, which read: ‘I am very excited to congratulate @JamesArthur23 on his No.1 album and @LittleMix for staying at No.1 in the singles chart.’

The mum-of-five was immediately inundated with tweets suggesting her daughter could take up singing professionally and praising the teen for her talent.
Molly even received some celebrity backing from Geordie Shore’s Sophie Kasaei who tweeted: ‘eeee she’s amazing!!!!’
But the shy teen didn’t seem to pleased with the exposure, jokingly tweeting her mum: ‘oh dear what have you done’.

Molly was no doubt also left red-faced after her father announced she wasn’t allowed to date.
Appearing on Loose Women last year, Brian said: ‘My girls are great, they’re getting so old. We were just looking at photos of Molly coming out of the hospital, and it’s just like how did that happen so fast?’
But Brian quickly shut down any speculation that his teenage daughters were allowed to date, as he joked: ‘It’s not going to happen. They’re going to be asexual for the rest of their lives. Just them on their own, forever.’
Kerry and Brian wed in 2002 but split just two years later, with their divorce being finalised in 2006.
