Be still our beating hearts! Brian McFadden, formerly of Westlife, has dropped hints that two of Britain's biggest acts of the '90s - Westlife and Boyzone - may be teaming up to form the ultimate supergroup!

In fact, McFadden, who broke many a fangirl's heart when he left Westlife in 2004, has already joined Boyzone's Keith Duffy to form Boyzlife!

The duo is set to take the stage across UK to perform a mix of their old bands' biggest hits later this year.

In an interview with The Sun UK, McFadden revealed that he has talked to "the lads" about going on a world tour together, saying that "it would be amazing" as members of both bands, all of whom are Irish, "get on so well"

"We all had a chat, the lads. We said it would be amazing. Not even just performing together, but can you imagine the craic? Nine of us Irish lads on a tour bus together, going round the world together. It would be absolute carnage," he said. "We all get on so well so you never know. We would have so much fun on tour. We could end up adding more people to the next one. Right now this is about me and Keith but the door is always open."

The pair also suggested that both groups may end up writing new songs together if they ever joined forces, adding that they might even make a reality show out of it

“I’m sure that if that ever did happen we’d make new music. Westlife have had 14 No. 1's, Boyzone have had nine or ten. There’s a lot of material we could perform," McFadden said. “But we wouldn’t want to tour old music all the time. We love making music.” Duffy added, "We might end up writing some songs together. It might end up on TV and we’ll record a documentary of it. There’s no limit to this. We’re going out there with our ears and eyes open."

It may not be 100% sure thing yet, but Boyzone's Ronan Keating seems like he would be open to the idea when he revealed that "ideas have been thrown around" when he was asked about collaborating with Westlife

"Never say never to those sort of things. We’ll see. Not right now, but maybe, maybe we would. It’d be cool fun I think to do something like that, definitely," he said.

'Til then, keep your fingers crossed, '90s fangirls! After all, this has happened before:
