The Nolans are reuniting one final time for a farewell tour.

The singing sisters began their career in 1974 as a five-piece, with younger sibling Coleen joining in 1980.

Following several line-up changes, they eventually went their separate ways in 2005, but Coleen, Bernie, Linda and Maureen reunited in 2009 to mark the 30th anniversary of the release of their most successful hit, I’m in the Mood for Dancing.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Coleen explained that they are reuniting for one final tour, saying: "I can't put into words how excited we are about our farewell tour. But every night will be tinged with sadness knowing we're getting nearer the end... the very last time we'll perform. Just thinking about it now I get choked up with emotion and I know all the girls feel the same."

The tour will commence in Nottingham, England in February 2013.
