He released a book about his life in 2011 titled: "My Life: A Coach Trip Adventure".

Does Brendan Sheerin have a partner?

Brendan was in a 25-year relationship until his partner Leslie until he sadly died of heart failure in 2001. He is not, as far as we know, currently in a relationship.

Speaking about Wes to The Sun in 2017, Brendan said: "My big love was my Les. I was with him for 25 years. If I’m hit by Cupid’s arrow again, fair enough but I’m not looking for it. Mind, a lot of men do say to me: 'We loved you in those tight, camouflage shorts.' I’m thinking: ‘What’s going on here?’ I’m doing Coach Trip, not a sex advert."
