Westlife have welcomed Take That's reunion with Robbie Williams - saying they need "the competition".
But the Irish band said they would not be following their example and inviting former member Brian McFadden back into the fold.
Nicky Byrne told Hello! magazine: "You need competition to keep you on your toes.
"I love Take That and have been a fan since secondary school.
"Everything those boys do turns to gold and I sometimes look at them and think, 'I wish we had that song', but we've done OK."
Shane Filan said McFadden left because he did not like "what Westlife were" and if he came back they would worry if he was happy or not.
