Westlife: we'll never be back

Westlife, who recently announced they are to split next year, have dismissed any hopes of a future reunion.

In an interview in today's Sun newspaper, Kian Egan says the band will never reform because they have already turned down a multi-million-pound deal to stay together.

"We walked away from a record deal that would have changed our lives for ever, secured our future beyond anything. It's not about the money. We'd have made far more on a new record than we ever would with a comeback tour."

Nicky Byrne is also quoted in today's Daily Star saying "It's not a publicity stunt... Other bands who have breaks know they might come back. We're saying we're not."

The group, who have been together for 14 years, will bow out following a farewell tour next year and said they are looking forward to "new ventures".
