Louis's original twins ready for comeback

Louis Walsh's former proteges The Carter Twins are ready to step into the limelight once more.

The Diary can reveal how handsome brothers Stephen and Anthony, who previously toured with Boyzone, are set to take another stab at fame after forming a new band called the Brat Pack.

The pair, who have joined forces with a friend to form the tribute group, have left their pop days behind and will now be performing all the best known hits of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett and Michael Buble, among others.

The trio are due to begin touring the country in December, marking Stephen and Anthony's first return to the stage in over a decade.

Since turning their back on their singing careers the brothers have continued to work together, setting up their own printing business.

They have also settled down, with Anthony marrying his long-term sweetheart Amanda Lynch at a ceremony in Cancun, Mexico two years ago.

Stephen, meanwhile, is due to wed his model girlfriend Avril Kelly early next year at a ceremony in Kildare.

The loved-up couple have been together for over seven years and got engaged during a holiday to New York last Christmas.
