Pop hunk Ronan Keating wants to reunite Boyzone, despite previously refusing to ever work with the boyband again.

The 26-year-old's change of heart has reportedly been influenced by his faltering solo career - his latest LP TURN IT ON only reached number 21 in the British album charts.

Ronan fell out spectacularly with Keith Duffy and Shane Lynch after Boyzone split in 2000, and said, "I'm so f***ing over all that Boyzone c**p."

But now Ronan hopes the Irish group - which also included Stephen Gately and Mikey Graham as members - can get back together, possibly for a fundraising concert.

He says, "There might be a Boyzone reunion for a charity gig to start off with.

"I've never said we'd never get back together again. You never know what's down the road.

"I don't know if the reunion is going to be a possibility because I never thought we's be talking again and now we are."
