Shane FIlan says he hasn't ruled out the possibility of Westlife reuniting further down the road
Shane Filan says a Westlife reunion "could happen" in the future.
The 38-year-old singer gets asked if the band will get back together all the time and his honest answer is that he "doesn't know," but he'll never say never.
Asked if he thinks the group - who disbanded in 2012 - will reunite one day, Shane exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "The Westlife question I get asked all the time.
"The honest truth is I don't know. It could happen someday, of course there is a chance, but there is also a chance that it might not."
The 'Flying Without Wings' hitmaker says when he meets up with his former bandmates - Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan and Markus Feehily - they never talk about reuniting, but they do reminisce on their time in the chart-topping band, which sold over 50 million records worldwide during their career spanning 14 years.
He continued: "We haven't talked about it. There is no plans right now.
"Whether that will change in the future, I suppose you will have to wait and see you never know.
"We still have a friendship. It's always nice to see the lads. Whenever I see the lads it's never awkward.
"When we see each other it's nice and we chat about stuff and reminice.
"We have a bond that no matter whether the band happens again we will always have a bond that no one else has."
Shane's third solo album 'Love Always' is out now.
