Westlife are to reunite and go on tour.

The group are set to reunite and have ditched Simon Cowell’s label for Universal Music.

It was reported that Cowell was only interested in signing the band if Brian McFadden was involved too, so the band signed elsewhere.

A source 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.

“There’s been a lot of speculation, but this time it’s a done deal and contracts have been signed.”
