The Pussycat Dolls have announced they are embarking on a reunion tour next year 10 years after they revealed they were taking a hiatus to pursue solo careers.
However one member of the band – Melody Thornton – won’t be joining them on the road, as it is revealed that they will be touring the UK and Ireland without her.
Nicole Scherzinger, Ashley Roberts, Kimberly Wyatt, Carmit Bachar and Jessica Sutta will perform for the first time as a five piece during Saturday’s X Factor: Celebrity.
Their reunion was partly inspired by the Spice Girls successful tour earlier this year, as the women claimed that they felt the series of shows was ‘inspiring’.
The tour will kick off in April 2020, more than a decade after they split amid rumours of a rift over Nicole’s dominant role in both the recording studio and on stage.
Speaking ahead of the announcement, Ashley said it was ‘amazing and inspiring’ seeing Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Geri Horner and Melanie Chisholm back together, but stopped short of saying the Spice Girls had prompted their reunion.
