Eighties pop group Spandau Ballet are expected to announce this week they are reforming.

A press conference is to be held on the HMS Belfast in London on Wednesday, with the Gold stars set to reveal the details of their return, likely to include new material and a world tour.

"The boys are back in town and we can't wait. It's going to be brilliant, we're very excited, but it will be very different," lead singer Tony Hadley told the Sunday People newspaper.

"There will be all the hits, the nostalgia, but there will also be a new take on what Spandau Ballet are about."

The quintet split in 1989 after a legal dispute between songwriter Gary Kemp, drummer John Keeble and saxophonist Steve Norman over royalties.

Both Kemp and his brother Martin went on to forge acting careers, while Hadley returned to solo performing after winning reality show Reborn In The USA in 2003.

Spandau Ballet had a number one single and album in 1983 with True and won the 1984 Brit award for technical excellence.
