Irish stars in Scotland to mark the release of their new Greatest Hits album.
Fans of Westlife have camped overnight in Glasgow for the chance to meet the band.
The Irish band have been in Scotland to meet fans and to mark the release of their final album Greatest hits.
The album collects songs from their 14-year career that made them one of the most successful bands ever, but it will be their last ever release.
Asked how it was doing their final signing tour, Shane Filan told STV news: “It’s quite weird actually we were just talking about it in the bus about how it is the last time we’re doing a signing as a band, everything we’re doing is for the last time so it is a bit weird.
“The reaction is unbelievable it just shows the dedication we have in Scotland, it’s pretty cool.”
They have had 14 number one singles in the UK, 26 top ten hits and have sold over 44 million records, but confirmed in October that they are to call it a day following their farewell tour next year.
The tour sees them playing three concerts at Glasgow’s SECC in May and June, which are set to be their final concerts as a band.
