So after the weekend's X Factor performances by JLS and Westlife and Take That with Robbie again,all the questions are being asked should Brian McFadden rejoin Westlife. How Ever I don't think its the same as the Take That situation!
Westlife have revealed they won't ask estranged bandmate Brian McFadden to return to the group.
The band, who performed their new single 'Safe' on last night's X Factor results show, said that seeing Robbie Williams return to Take That has not encouraged them to contact McFadden, who left the group in 2004.
Shane Filan told The Daily Record: "Seeing Take That with Robbie again has not encouraged us to get Brian back. If he did come back, we'd be thinking, 'Is he happy with what we are doing now?'"
Mark Feehily added: "We are Take That fans so are excited about it happening and it also ups the ante for us. When there is no competition, you can get a bit lazy so it's good to have another band back."
Filan continued: "It is great ammo for our label to give us the best material rather than give us something that might be second best."
'Safe' is currently at number 11 on the iTunes chart. Their tenth studio album Gravity follows on November 22.
