Irish pop magic-makers Bewitched/B*Witched/B Asterisk Witched are reuniting to perform news music and fill us all with weatherman-blaming nostalgia.

The girl group, who taught us the meaning of 'C'est La Vie' waaaaay before our GCSE French teacher did, are reuniting with all four original members – Lindsay Armaou, Sinead O'Carroll and sisters Keavy and Edele Lynch – in 2018.

However, don't expect Irish tin whistles and riverdancing this time around, oh no – the ladies want to reflect where they are as music artists nowadays. So that'll mean lots of heavily produced DJ tracks, guest starring a rap from Stormzy, right? No?

Edele, 37, told The Sun: "We're gonna be what we are now musically and what we feel now.

"We're not gonna try to tap into what we were because that's nostalgia and the music industry has moved on so much as we all have … we've updated it so we feel comfortable with it."

Our main advice for 2017 would be to change your name to something easier to Google.

However, it seems even the girls got a *little* bit tired of their own hit-song after a while, thankfully, they've found a new appreciation for it now.

We're pretty sure it's stood the test of tim,e right? 'Unchained Melody', 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and B Asterisk Witched's own song 'C'est La Vie' are all timeless pieces of art.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Edele explained: "I think it's incredible. I think at some point I was getting a little fed up with it, and two years ago I did pantomimes and we had C'est La Vie in the pantomime.

"But I wasn't in it, so I got to stand back and look at 'C'est La Vie' from a different perspective."

She added: "We're the best of friends again now and I talk to Sinead in particular every day, and I wouldn't want my life without her again."

B*Witched actually reunited back in 2012 for ITV's reality show The Big Reunion – after their falling out six years previously.

Edele explained: "Sinead and I fell out. We fell out in 2006 and then when we got the band back together loads of other issues came up between us that we didn't necessarily understand or see, or foresee."

Well, hopefully the girls can cast a spell on us once again – if only so we can keep conjuring up witchy puns.
