It seems to be the year of '90s pop revivals, as yet another chart-topping band are planning to make their musical comeback.

Following Steps' successful return to the charts with new track 'Scared of the Dark', Ronan Keating has confirmed that Irish boyband Boyzone are planning to celebrate their 25th year in showbusiness by making a return to music.

"Twenty five years! " Ronan told The Sun. "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."

The remaining living members - Ronan Keating, Shane Lynch, Keith Duffy and Mikey Graham - are reportedly in talks to make a grand return to the music scene to celebrate their quarter century year in the business.

It's said there have been discussions on numerous possibilities, including an album, tour and even a tell-all book.

A West End show may also be in the works, despite the fact Boyzone: The Musical is actually already a thing, and as excited as we are about a Boyzone revival, the group's return to music doesn't come without its setback.

Indeed, the band will never be able to return to their original line-up, as founding member Stephen Gately tragically passed away in 2009.

The star was found dead at his home in Majorca, with a reported undetected heart condition.

Boyzone also need to nab Keith Duffy back from his new group Boyzlife, a boyband mash-up he created with Westlife star Brian McFadden last year.

But apart from that: roll on the reunion.
