Former BOYZONE singer Shane Lynch has found GOD after becoming disillusioned with his hellraising lifestyle.

The LOVE ME FOR A REASON hitmaker decided to turn to Christianity after his life started to spiral out of control following the demise of the Irish boy band in 1999 and his separation from wife EASTHER BENNETT (corr) of Eternal in 2000.

Shane, 27, explains, "I'm trying to make amends for all the badness I've had in my life. Let's clean the slate and move forward. In the last 18 months I've been fighting against a lot of anger and hatred and God has helped me through that.

"I now go to church on Sundays and things like that. God has pulled me through my badness and my hard times."
