Members of pop groups Boyzone and Westlife have teamed up to form new 'supergroup' Boyzlife.

Boyzone's Keith Duffy and former Westlife singer Brian McFadden will embark on a UK tour later this year, kicking off in October. The tour will consist of 12 dates in total, with tickets on sale from 9am on March 8.

In a press release, Duffy says of the news: "Brian and I have been talking about this for a while so it’s really exciting to finally be able to reveal Boyzlife. We can’t wait to get out on the road and reconnect with our fans, taking a trip down memory lane."

McFadden added: "Keith and I have always been great friends and we’ve wanted to work together for quite a while now. With the amount of stories between us we knew it would make for a great live show, mixed in with a few songs!"

McFadden also hinted to The Sun that the other members of the two acts might be open to joining the supergroup. He said: "We all had a chat [at Ronan Keating’s wedding last year], 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 absolutely carnage. We all get on so well so you never know. 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."

Brian McFadden originally left Westlife in 2004, with the remaining members continuing as a fourpiece until 2012.

Keith Duffy, meanwhile, served as a member of Boyzone from 1993–2000, before reuniting with the group when they reformed in 2008.
