The band in question have sold over 15 million records…

WET WET WET have announced they are to reform for a tour and new material.

Following a break of seven years, the group, fronted by Marti Pellow plan a single, greatest hits album and arena tour at the end of the year.

Drummer Tommy Cunningham said: “You can’t underestimate how much it has taken for us to get back together. But there’s a lot of unfinished business and I still feel we didn’t get to the point where we achieved all we could have achieved.”

The band, who had three UK Number One singles, including the covers ‘A Little Help From My Friends’ and ‘Love Is All Around’, officially split in 1999, when Pellow was battling drug addiction.
