Former Westlife singer Brian McFadden has rubbished rumours that the boy band are planning a reunion tour.

The band experienced incredible global success with 50 million album sales worldwide and 14 UK number ones before they disbanded in 2012.

Brian left the band in 2004 to pursue a solo career.

"If there ever was a Westlife reunion, it doesn't mean I'm going to be involved because don't forget they were together as a four piece longer than I was in the band," Brian told the Herald.

"None of us have ever spoken about it or talked about it but I would never rule out doing something with them," he continued.

"It's not even close to being on the cards, we're all doing so many different things in our careers and it hasn't even been spoken about.

"Other people have been talking about it but none of us have," he added.

Brian (34) also revealed that reading Shane Filan's book brought up memories of his time in Westlife.


"I couldn't believe how nice he was to me in it," he revealed.

"When I read the book, it brought back so many memories for me.

"I'd like to read all five members' books and put it all together because Shane's book brought stories that I had completely forgotten about," he added.
