Rumours had been flying around for months that the girls were going to get back together to mark a decade in the business, but it wasn't until 3 March that one of them confirmed the news.
It was left to the somewhat AWOL member of the band to let us all into the secret, with Nadine telling Dean Piper:
"It's time to come back. At the end of the year it would have been ten years and it feels like the right time to regroup. I know everyone's been speculating about what we will do. It will be arena dates at the start of next year and we will have new music to go with it.
"One or two singles I would think. It depends on how well it goes with the tour announcement. If things work well, there's enough demand and we're all in the same head space as a band then who knows what could happen."
