Former Spandau Ballet members Gary and Martin Kemp have agreed to to feature in a spoof documentary about them recording a new album with the band.

The 1980s' band sold more than 25 million albums and are set to be interviewed by comedian Rhys Thomas about their lives and careers.

In the mockumentary, Martin - who has also starred in BBC soap EastEnders - will discuss plans to launch a new film franchise while Gary will talk about his idea for a new vegan meat substitute called Wonge.

The Fast Show's Simon Day, Line Of Duty's Anna Maxwell Martin, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels' Alan Ford and Christopher Eccleston, who played Doctor Who, will also feature.

Perry Benson, who starred in Benidorm and This Is England, will play Martin and Gary's fictional brother Ross in the BBC Four show The Kemps: All True.

Martin said: "After being known as Roman Kemp's dad for a few months, I'm really happy to be getting back in the limelight and being known for being that one from Spandau Ballet who hit someone over the head with an ashtray in EastEnders, as well as spending some time with my brothers, Gary and Ross."

Spandau Ballet, who have had 23 hit singles worldwide, celebrated their 40th anniversary in December.

The New Romantic group also received a BMI award in 2011 for their mega hit True after it became one of the most played songs in US history.

Gary said: "I'm thrilled that the BBC are making this probing documentary into the lives of my brother and me, and great to be in the delicate yet blood-stained hands of the wonderful Rhys Thomas.

"Anyone who knows Rhys' work can expect a little more probing than is usual. Our lawyers await."

Shane Allen, controller of BBC Comedy, said: "I had to look up the word hagiography in relation to this as it's the complete opposite of that.

"Fair play to Gary and Martin for being good sports and going along with the screwball comedy brain of Rhys Thomas."
