Una Healy appeared to reference her ex-husband Ben Foden’s whirlwind marriage on Friday, as she took to the stage at the Farmer’s Bash Live at the Beach in Portrush.

In footage exclusively obtained by MailOnline, the Irish songstress, 37, took to the stage to perform a cover of the Miley Cyrus hit Nothing Breaks Like A Heart, before launching into a track she described as ‘very personal.’

It comes as Una said she ‘doesn’t like to relive the past’ just days before it was revealed that ex Ben had married his new girlfriend Jackie Belanoff Smith.

After her cover of the Miley Cyrus hit, Una told the crowd in Portrush, Northern Ireland that the next song was ‘a personal one,’ but did not directly reference the news of Ben’s surprise wedding.

Titled Strangers, the lyrics included: ‘Tell me, did I really ever get to know you? Did you really care for me like you’re supposed to? Oh, did you?

‘Empty, every word you said to me was empty. Broken every promise that you made me. No, we can’t save this.’

The song continues: ‘I guess everything I gave was not enough. I gave you my whole heart but, tell me, was it love for you? I will not regret, I gave my all. Strangers when we met, now strangers at the end.

Ben’s announcement in full  

This last year has been by far my toughest and most turbulent for a number of reasons that many of you I’m sure are aware of, in some way or another. 

The world has a funny way of working things out, many people think I’m a bad person – as I’m sure they’ll be many nasty comments left under this post by keyboard warriors a plenty. 

But I met a girl who seriously swept me off my feet and in a time of hardship showed me love, a deep devoted love. 

People will say we are mad or crazy or even fools, as Jackie Belanoff Smith and I had only been dating seriously for a little over 2 weeks before deciding to get married. 

But when someone like her comes in to your life, why would I wait? 

The people who needed to know, such as close family and friends were told before anyone else and they are happy for me including my beautiful X wife Una Healy who I love even more for her blessing.

Life is short and you only get one and it’s worth living. Jackie is the greatest human being I’ve ever come across – she’s beautiful inside and out, intelligent, charming, funny, generous, kind, gentle, energetic the list goes on. 

She will be a great step mum to Aoife and Tadhg and offers me a future I can’t wait to explore with her. 

My heart is full and I honestly couldn’t be happier, so those that want to bring negativity or try and tear me down go ahead. My life is great and I hope you all will one day feel happiness like i feel while I write this caption. I love you.

I can’t wait to see where our lives lead together you brought excitement and joy to my life and I couldn’t be prouder having stand at my side as Mrs Foden. (BTW the witness is Jackie’s sister thanks you too hun for being a legend)

‘You told me, I was yours and you were mine, solely. Never wanted to believe those stories, yeah, that they told me.

‘Crazy, you made me feel like I was going crazy, believing all those lies that you fed me, no, I wasn’t crazy.

‘So save your breath, there’s nothing left worth keeping anyway. We are so much better off to go our separate ways.’

Una put on a busty display as she took to the stage in a stylish double-denim outfit, and delighted the crowd with the set which saw her play the guitar as accompaniment.

The appearance came after Una claimed she ‘doesn’t relive the past’ and that one day can change your life,’ just days before the news of Ben’s surprise wedding.

Speaking to the Irish Times, the pop star said: ‘Oh gosh, life in general just changes all the time, doesn’t it? Not just because I’m not in [The Saturdays] anymore, but because my whole life has changed a lot in the last year even.

‘So much can happen in five years, and so little can happen. That’s why I hate when anyone asks the question, “Where do you see yourself in five years?” because you never have any idea. A day can change your life.

‘You just have to expect that. You can only take one day at a time and you can’t relive your past. You have to just keep positive as much as you can, take it as it comes and enjoy it.’

Embattled: Una has not addressed Ben's wedding directly since the news came out, but she is said to be leaning on her fellow The Saturdays bandmates

These quotes have been published just two days after rugby player Ben randomly announced he had remarried, only a year after his divorce from Una and just two weeks after meeting new bride Jackie Belanoff Smith.

Una has not addressed the matter directly since the news came out, but she is said to be leaning on her fellow The Saturdays bandmates – Mollie King, 32, Frankie Bridge, 30, Rochelle Humes, 30, and Vanessa White, 29 – for support. 

A source told The Sun that The Saturdays were ‘straight on the phone’ to Una after learning Ben had remarried, despite the sportsman claiming that he had married Jackie with the blessing of his ex.

He took to Instagram to announce he and his new wife exchanged vows aboard a yacht in Nantucket, Massachusetts, at the weekend.

Una and Ben were married for six years until they split in July 2018 when it emerged he had cheated on her with a PR girl. 

The couple dated for four years before tying the knot in June 2012 in Una’s native Ireland, and share daughter Aoife, seven, and son Tadhg, four,

Ben later confirmed he did cheat on wife Una during their six-year marriage, but insists his infidelity was one of many reasons for the couple’s subsequent divorce.

His tattered reputation suffered a further blow in 2018 after he used dating app Bumble to publicly announce his separation from the former The Saturdays star.
