Which 80s pop girlband are reuniting for a MASSIVE UK tour?!

It seems like we can't turn on the radio anymore without hearing about a pop group from the good ole days reuniting to put out more music.

Who knows what started it - perhaps it was Take That returning back in 2006 (sans Robbie Williams, of course) that spurred them all on.

Thanks to 2013 TV show The Big Reunion, LOADS of 90s pop bands came out of the woodwork to temporarily reform for a massive UK tour at the end of that year.

Many of those bands went on to do their own separate reunions, like Atomic Kitten, who recently completed a massive tour in Australia, and Steps, who released their first single in five years last month.

All Saints and Craig David have also had successful comebacks in the last couple of years, paving the way for even more pop legends to give it a go.

After all, we all love a bit of nostalgia, don't we!

The latest group to announce that they're getting back together for a reunion tour is none other than 80s girlband Bananarama.

The group, made up of Karen Woodward, Sara Dallin and Siobhan Fahey, have announced a MASSIVE UK tour with a whopping 15 dates confirmed.

Bananarama, who last performed together as the original trio 29 years ago at the 1988 BRIT Awards, are famous for bangers such as Venus and Cruel Summer, also featuring on the 1984 Band Aid Christmas single, Do They Know It's Christmas?.

Speaking to The Sun, Sara said: "We first had a chat about it over Christmas and before we knew it the whole thing snowballed. Keren and I called Siobhan to chat about it and things went from there."

Siobhan, who famously quit the group in 1988 after the girls fell out and went on to sing in the band Shakespears Sister, famous for songs such as Stay and Hello, added: "By the time I managed to come over to talk about it, somehow it had become a done deal, the dates had been scheduled and we had a photoshoot arranged."

"I didn't say yes immediately, I was in complete shock but my heart felt a sense of absolute joy and I just felt it was the right time in my life.

"Emotionally, it felt like something I needed to revisit, to go back to my roots and that time with my best friends."
