Kian Egan has brushed off reports that Westlife are set to reunite.
Although the band’s former manager, Louis Walsh, has insisted that the foursome will get back together for a reunion tour – band member Kian has confirmed that it’s definitely not happening.
Kian was speaking to Goss.ie as he launched the Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week campaign, and when asked about Louis’ Westlife reunion comments, the singer said, “The story is this – stop listening to Louis Walsh!”
He continued, “I don’t know why he says it so much, it’s quite weird.”
Explaining why they won’t be reuniting any time soon, the father-of-three said, “Everybody’s kind of spread out, they’re all doing their own things.”
“Nicky’s on radio all day every day, he’s got his TV world, he’s in a completely different world than the rest of us.”
“Shane is touring, he’s releasing album after album, and he’s doing very, very well, he’s out in Asia the whole time!
“So I just don’t even know how people would think that we’re ready to do it,” he told Goss.ie.
Since he acted as a coach on The Voice of Ireland, Kian has been enjoying spending time in Sligo with his family; wife Jodi, and kids Koa, 6, Zekey, 3, and Cobi, 8 months.
When asked if he’d interrupt his peaceful life in Sligo if the right project came along, Kian said, “It all depends on how long. If someone asked me to go live in a different part of the world for six months, unless there was a really good wage and I was able to take the family with me, I’d probably say no.”
“I couldn’t see myself living in a major city for a long period of time or anything like that. I just kind of feel like the world I’m in at the minute is really good, and I’m very fortunate to be in that world.
He added, “But look, never say never, if the right job comes in, if I’m passionate about it and I really like the idea of it, then I’m kind of keen at the same time.”

Kian was speaking to Goss.ie as he launched the Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week, inviting the island of Ireland to Do Good to Feel Good.
Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week aims to encourage the nation to get involved in one of the hundreds of ways of protecting our precious maritime resource.
Speaking at the launch, Kian said, “I’m thrilled to be continuing with the great work of Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week to highlight the power of communities coming together and doing good to protect our beautiful island’s coastlines.”
“As a keen surfer, I have always appreciated the positive physical and mental benefits that living along the Sligo coast has brought both me and my family – so I truly hope that everyone gets involved in the many opportunities to connect with the coast and plays their part in protecting it this week.”
