Brian McFadden is putting his time in Irish group Westlife to good use - he's fronting a new show chronicling the drama of putting together a boyband. McFadden shot to fame with the "Flying Without Wings" hitmakers in 1999, but quit in 2004 to pursue a solo career.

Now the-29 year-old has teamed up with Australian DJ Kyle Sandilands for a show documenting the creation of a five-piece boyband. Sandilands says, "It follows what happens in a group and how you take a boy band and market them."

"It will go through how a song is written, what life is like on the road - because he [McFadden] has experienced that - and hearing his stories. His journey and all the shenanigans, we thought it would be appealing. It's more a documentary, not a reality show so much and how they go from five guys to a Westlife or NSYNC."

Auditions for the new group kick off in Melbourne, Australia in late February.
