Westlife fans can rest easy now knowing that the boys reunion is 100% confirmed

Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan are all onboard for the reunion - but die hard fans might be sad to hear that Brian McFadden won't be rejoining the group for their next venture.

Infact, Metro.co.uk reports that Brian was never invited back for the boys reunion!

McFadden's spokesman said "I think Brian has made it widely known that he’s not expressed any desire to go back into Westlife so the topic has never been broached,"

They went on to add that Brian is working on solo music and is locked in to a handful of TV appearances.

"He couldn’t fit Westlife in even if they’d asked him, but he wishes the guys well!"

In a recent interview, the other 4 boys spoke about their reunion, "we genuinely missed each other and missed the buzz of performing on stage together to all our fans."

"We still have a lot that we want to achieve as a band and we want to bring our new music to fans all over the world."

"It felt so great to be back in the studio together and hanging out with each other again. It just felt right. We're fresh, ready and so excited for this new next chapter of Westlife."

Coincidentally their 'next chapter' will mark 20 years since the band first formed.

Fingers crossed they bring their tour to New Zealand! We're sure there'll be loads of fans by the tarmac at the airport eagerly awaiting their arrival.
