Irish chart-toppers Westlife accidentally blew a chance to make music with soul legend Stevie Wonder, after losing his telephone number.

The MANDY hitmakers bumped into Stevie at a Hollywood party during a recent trip to the States, and were stunned when the superstar - who recently collaborated with boyband rivals BLUE - suggested they record a track together.

But bandmember Mark Feehily drunkenly jotted down his number wrong.

Bandmate BRYAN McFADDEN explains, "We were in LA and Stevie said we should hook up and I nearly fell over. Stevie gave Mark his phone number but he took it down wrong."
