Westlife performed their greatest hits to a packed Wembley Stadium on Saturday - the first time in the chart-topping group's history that they have played at the famous London venue.

The sold-out show, featuring numbers such as Flying Without Wings, was part of their Wild Dreams Tour.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor and James Morrison took to the Wembley stage to perform before the quartet - Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan - thrilled the crowd on Saturday night.

Last week, Feehily said that securing the Wembley gig nearly 25 years into their music careers had slightly "blown our minds a little bit".

Westlife at Wembley on Saturday night - "It just means so much, nearly 25 years into our career to be playing to a sold-out Wembley Stadium"

He told ITV's This Morning on Friday: "I think playing concerts like this in Wembley Stadium is something that we've dreamed of since we were little boys and to actually be here now... I think for us it just means so much, nearly 25 years into our career to be playing to a sold-out Wembley Stadium."

Filan agreed that finally playing Wembley was a "massive achievement" for the group, saying: "We've played stadiums all over the world, but Wembley Stadium is probably the most famous stadium in the world.

"And, I suppose, once you play the stadium, you're in a very elite list of people that are lucky enough to play it - and I obviously think of bands like Queen and people like that.

"It's pretty incredible and we're very proud of it."

After Wembley, the tour now moves to Cork's Páirc Uí Chaoimh

"It's a massive achievement for us," Filan added.

The concert was also broadcast live in cinemas and #westlifeincinemas was trending on Twitter.
