A source revealed: "Boyzone's comeback is well and truly on for 2018. 

"It will be 25 years since they first started out so the lads want to do something extra special. "Talks have been going on for a while and there are a number of ideas in the works." 

In addition to releasing new music, the band have also discussed writing a tell-all book, going on tour and even creating their own West End show.

The news comes after Keith Duffy told Heart that his current double act with former Westlife star Brian Mcfadden won't get in the way of any possible plans with Boyzone in the future. 

He explained: "I am very much still a member of Boyzone. I have never left Boyzone. I'm hoping to go on a tour with them for our 25th anniversary with them next year. They've always been a big part of my life."

He told The Sun newspaper: "Twenty-five years! It's such a long time and so much has happened. 

"I'm sure we'll mark it in some way. But whether by tour, record, book, musical ... we haven't decided yet."
