Following rumours that Robbie Williams is planning to enter the studio with Take That to write new material together, the Irish boyband were asked if they had considered collaborating with McFadden again, says Angry Ape.
Kian Egan said: "No... he doesn't live in this country and he's not in the music industry anymore. He has a new life in Australia. We're all still very good friends, but he left Westlife for a reason."
Bandmate Shane Filan added: "I'm sure we'll sing with Brian again one day. It might be in a pub - it might not be on the telly. He left Westlife because he wasn't happy."
