Admitting his new move is shocking to many, Mark told Today FM's Eoghan McDermott, via website goss.ie:
"It's going really well, we've got loads of interest and we've booked it in with a lot of the musicfestivals and we're talking about doing some Irish ones as well.
"People were flabbergasted at the fact that I was in the van making crepes.People kind of have this thing 'Oh, he was in Westlife a few years ago and now he's making tea'." Well, we're a tad shocked too.
"It's my business and I love it, anything I get involved in I get involved 110%.A couple of Irish people came up and were like 'Wait a minute, what are you doing in a van?I love festivals, so why not?"

He recognised it would be a shock to many, who imagined he would carry on singing – and now he's launching his solo career too.
"Everyone thinks I just went back to my living room and sat down for the last few years,"Just because people can't see you doesn't mean you're not doing anything.
"Not too long after Westlife finished I went back into the studio and made the decision to completely start from scratch.The music that I would come out with as an individual is quite different to Westlife."
