Former Westlife star Kian Egan has won a long-running battle with local officials in Ireland to have a wall erected around his home.

The Irish singer was ordered to remove a fence from around his property in Strandhill, County Sligo by council authorities after failing to obtain planning permission for the structure.

He argued that fans often drive past the mansion in a bid to get a glimpse of him and his actress wife Jodi Albert, and on Tuesday (19Nov13), council leaders agreed to reverse the decision.

Construction workers have now started building a brick wall around the house.

Egan is currently in the Australian jungle competing on U.K. reality show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
