But there also may be some new material too, as the the boys have recorded new material with none other than Ed Sheeran. A source revealed to The Sun newspaper that "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. They’re just pulling together the final promo details including a video before they unveil it. It’s going to be huge."
Former manager Louis Walsh originally fuelled the speculation about the reunion when he revealed to the Irish Mirror last year that "a Westlife reunion is definitely going to happen – but I have no idea when.
"I think the reunion will be great, but its up to them to decide when they will do it."
The band split in 2011 after 14 years together, but not before announcing plans for a farewell tour in 2012. At the time sources blamed an “irreparable rift” after rumours swirled that the boyband members wanted to go in different directions.
