born on 15/12/1978 in Dublin, Leinster, Ireland
Edele Claire Christina Edwina Lynch (born 15 December 1979 in Dublin, Ireland) is an Irish singer-songwriter, musician, dancer and actress. She is best known as the lead singer of Irish girl group B*Witched, of which her twin sister Keavy is also a member. Her brother Shane is also a member of boy band Boyzone.
B*Witched were initially active between 1998 and 2002, before reuniting in 2012. After the split, Edele joined for the songwriting/production team Xenomania. She co-wrote "Some Kind of Miracle" for Girls Aloud's debut album Sound of the Underground, and "Buster", "Situation's Heavy" and "Twisted" for the Sugababes' third album Three. In 2006, her and her sister Keavy created a duo group going by the name of Ms Lynch, until December of 2009 when they were officially rebranded to "Barbarellas". Edele confirmed on Facebook in late 2012 that the Barbarellas project had come to an end before reuniting with B*Witched.
On 9 August 2006, Edele married Michael Barrett. On 7 July 2007, they welcomed their first child, daughter Ceol Sheila Barrett, who weighed in at six pounds, five ounces. She has since given birth to a son, Harley Christian, and another daughter, Enya.
On 28 October 2013, Edele won Celebrity Apprentice Ireland, beating journalist Amanda Brunke in the final and winning 25,000 for her chosen charity, Laura Lynn House.
