Christine McVie has fulfilled her dream of winning back her place in Fleetwood Mac after a 16-year absence, according to a new report.
The singer quit the group in 1998 and stepped out of the spotlight, but she returned to the stage with her former bandmates for two shows in London last year.

She subsequently revealed a desire to return full-time, prompting Stevie Nicks to insist her longtime friend would be welcome to rejoin.

Now rumors suggest McVie is back in the band after drummer Mick Fleetwood reportedly announced her return to the line-up during a low-key show in Hawaii on Saturday.

According to fan website Fleetwoodmacnews.com, the rocker told the Maui crowd, “This is the worst kept secret there is, but Christine McVie will be rejoining Fleetwood Mac!”

The band has yet to officially confirm the news.
