McFadden to leave Australia?

Brian McFadden has alluded to leaving Australian shores for good, after posting comments on his Twitter page on Monday.

He wrote: "So long australia (sic). Its (sic) been fun." It prompted questions about the future of the Irish singer's role as a judge on Seven's talent show Australia's Got Talent.

McFadden wrapped up filming for the show's sixth season last month, which is rumoured to be his last.

But McFadden's hints that he is leaving the country have added fuel to the rumour mill that he will be dropped by Seven, after a reported run-in with a high-profile network executive at the Dancing with the Stars finale.

According to an Eastern States newspaper, McFadden reportedly threatened to leave Seven, citing differences over a solo project.

But he later quashed the claims, saying: "Do I look like someone who is about to resign? I am really happy here . . . I only have to come to work one day a week."

The singer has been known to voice his opinions through the social networking site but his latest stunt has since been clarified by the 31-year-old's rep, who said McFadden would be flying back to Ireland to record songs for an upcoming album ahead of marrying his fiancee, Vogue Williams, in Italy next month.

"He is definitely returning," the rep said.

Since the controversial tweet, McFadden has jumped back on the site, writing: "P.S. it's only so long for a month Australia."

A Seven spokesman told AAA that the singer had finished his AGT commitments for 2012 and that the network was "yet to enter discussions for 2013", which would start soon.
