Westlife are reportedly planning a comeback album and tour after being approached by their former record label, Syco

Westlife are reportedly planning a comeback.

The 'You Raise Me Up' hitmakers announced their split just three years ago but it's now been revealed their former record label Syco have persuaded them to return for another album, followed by a tour.

A source shared: "Syco started the talks about getting Westlife back for an album.

"The idea now is that a new album could be released late next year with a tour to follow in 2016.

"The lads still have a massive following that would buy a new album in their droves and pay big money to see them again live.

"Syco want another big banker of an album and Westlife are their most successful act commercially."

However, while Mark Feehily, Kian Egan, Shane Filan and Nicky Byrne are likely to be on board for the reunion, it's unclear whether Brian McFadden - who quit the band in 2004 - would be interested in getting involved.

The insider added to The Sun newspaper: "Syco would love Brian to be part of the band again. It'd create the same sort of buzz as when Robbie Williams returned to Take That.

"But the other lads will need to be convinced because they were always very clear that when Brian left it was for good."
