Lovers of cheesy pop and terrible dance routines rejoice! Steps have confirmed they are set to make a comeback with a new single, album and tour.

The five-piece have even managed to bag a song especially written for them by Benny and Bjorn of ABBA.

The band - Claire Richards, Ian ‘H’ Watkins, Lisa Scott-Lee, Lee Latchford-Evans and Faye Tozer - are reuniting to celebrate their 20th anniversary - and have turned to the Swedish pop legends to help them score a hit.

First single from the album, ‘Scared Of The Dark’ is out this Friday, and, what this being Steps, the band have promised us all a fresh dance routine.

At the height of their fame Steps scored 13 consecutive top five singles, including ‘One For Sorrow’, ‘Stomp’, ‘Deeper Shade of Blue’ and their biggest hit, ‘Tragedy’.

They also shifted more than 20million albums in the Nineties and early Noughties, and embarked on several sold-out tours.

The band are set to hit the road again later this year on a 15-date arena tour and will be supported by another pop/dance outfit from the same era - the Vengaboys.
