Netflix and Sky are both rumoured to be in the midst of a bidding war over the release of the newly announced Westlife documentary, that will follow them around their reunion tour from the very beginnings until the very last of the 33 concerts.
Westlife, who hold 14 No.1 singles in the UK, have announced that they have had a camera crew following them around over the last few months, ever since the decision to reunite and tour.
The documentary started out as a way from them to document the reunification for themselves and their kids, but has now caught the attention of two massive streaming sites that are both willing to snap the boys up and deliver the next best documentary of all time to us lucky ducks.
Speaking to the Irish Sun, the lads spoke about why they thought of recording this huge moment in Irish music history;
Kian Eagan said;
“We’ve had crews on us since the first day because we knew straight away – we’ve got to capture it even if it’s just for ourselves."
“We’ll document it in some way because it’s important for us and our kids and for the fans to realise how it all came back together. I think that it is going to be magic.”
The documentary will also feature footage that only the lads themselves have seen, from their break-up back in 2012, which I'm sure will bring a tear to our eyes.
They will begin touring in May, kicking off in Belfast, so it'll be a while before any of us get to lay our eyes on the documentary but we're all buzzing, that's for sure!
Now we just have to sit back and wait to see who will win. Netflix or Sky? (#TeamNetflix) But, for now, let's continue playing Hello Love on repeat until we see them live..
