Good news for Westlife fans desperate for the boy band to reform – it looks like the wait may finally be over.
The Irish group – famous for turning mundane tracks in to international chart hits – originally consisted of Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, recent In Reality guest Mark Feehily, Shane Filan and Brian McFadden.
The group were first fractured in March 2004 when Brian quit to focus on family life and a solo career.
And the remaining band members continued to release music and tour until October 2011 when they announced they had split.
But now manager (and X Factor judge) Louis Walsh has promised the boys WILL reform in the not too distant future.
“A Westlife reunion is definitely going to happen – but I have no idea when,” the music manager told RSVP Live magazine.
“I’m still really good friends with all of the lads,” he boasted.
“I was chatting to Mark Feehily last night about the Christmas album he’s bringing out, and it’s amazing. I’d forgotten how talented he is,” he gushed.
“I think the reunion will be great, but it’s up to them to decide when they will do it,” he added.
The news has thrilled fans who have been waiting six years to learn when their heroes will be back performing together – with some speculating on social media that 2018 Croke Park Festival would be the ideal time for the reunion.
