Here’s Everything We Know About The Westlife Reunion

We are crying happy tears.

There was no news we needed to hear more on a very ropey Sunday than Westlife are getting back together.

It was revealed yesterday that our favourite boyband ever will reunite for the first time in six years. However, Brian McFadden will not be joining them.

An industry insider told the Irish Sun:

It’s signed, sealed and delivered and it’s definitely happening — and it absolutely does not include Brian McFadden.

“The other guys have been lined up to return to the studio and record some new songs and tour dates have even been organised, so it’s definitely going ahead this time.”

By making the decision to ditch Brian, the four lads have joined Universal’s record label instead of Simon Cowell’s Syco label.

A source said: “Simon wanted a Westlife reunion but only with something extra to bring fans back.

That meant Brian and his unpredictability. It would give the Westlife reunion the tension it needs.”
Maybe this is why they ditched Brian.

The lads must really have it in for Brian, seeing as back in April he told the Sun that his fellow former band members turned down a deal worth €10 million each from Simon to revert to their original line-up.
The boys’ comeback single has allegedly been written by Ed Sheeran (omg). The source told the Sun:

Westlife have really been pulling out all the stops for their big comeback and were desperate to get Ed on board.

It took quite some time to pull together and has been done totally behind closed doors, but he has finally given them the right record to make it happen.
Having Ed involved is a huge coup. They think he will give them a contemporary edge for their reunion. They have already recorded the song and are delighted with the results.
Can’t wait for Westlife’s new banger to play in McGowans every Saturday.
