'90s boyband A1 have announced they're reuniting for a massive 20th anniversary tour (how has it been 20 years?!).

The reunion will feature the original line-up of Paul Marazzi, Christian Ingebrigtsen, Mark Read and Ben Adams, who haven't all performed together since Paul left the band in 2002.

The all-grown-up boyband revealed the big news on Twitter, telling fans: "WE'RE SO EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THE 1ST OF OUR 20TH ANNIVERSARY REUNION DATES - STARTING WITH SINGAPORE..MORE TO FOLLOW."

Ben, Mark and Christian also released a short statement, sharing their excitement at having Paul back in the fold.

"We're unbelievably excited that Paul will be joining us again to bring the original line-up of A1 back together for the very first time in nearly 15 years," the boys said.

A1 were formed in 1998 and went on to score two UK number ones and six Top 10 hits, including a cover of A-ha's 'Take On Me'.

But in 2002, Paul abruptly quit the band, citing "personal reasons". Not long after Paul's departure, the group decided to split.

In 2013, Ben, Mark and Christian took part in ITV reality series The Big Reunion as a three-piece after Paul declined to participate.

Since leaving A1, Ben has gone on to have a successful career in theatre, appearing in the touring version of Flashdance the Musical. He also appeared in 2009's Celebrity Big Brother.

Earlier this year, he co-wrote and starred in West End musical Eugenius, alongside actor Warwick Davis.
