Dancing On Ice bosses are also reportedly keen on signing up Coronation Street actress Lucy Fallon.

Brian shot to fame back in 1998 when he joined boyband Westlife alongside Shane Filan, Kian Egan, Nicky Byrne and Mark Feehily. The group sold over 50 million records worldwide, including 14 number 1 singles in the UK with hits such as 'Flying Without Wings', 'Swear It Again' and 'If I Let You Go'.

Brian announced his departure from Westlife in 2004 and released a number of solo singles. Despite this, Brian has since turned his head to TV and in recent years he's appeared on shows such as Who's Doing The Dishes, Catchphrase and The Jump.

However, fans got VERY excited earlier today when it was reported that Westlife could be making a comeback to celebrate their 30th anniversary, and they've only got superstar Ed Sheeran to write them a new track.

Despite this, it seems Brian won't be part of the reunion, leaving it to Shane, Kian, Nicky and Mark.
