British pop group Steps are taking a step back in time and reforming again, with a new album entitled What the Future Holds being released in November, and a tour set for next year.
The unashamedly cheesy party band made up of Lee Latchford-Evans, Lisa Scott-Lee, Ian H Watkins, Faye Tozer and Claire Richards, enjoyed huge success in the nineties with hits including One For Sorrow, Tragedy and Love's Got A Hold On My Heart.

It followed a series of cryptic posts featuring the band, referencing their past and the future, with one including a crystal ball.
Steps were formed in the 90s as a readymade karaoke pop machine with choreographed routines that fans could perform on the dance floor.
They released three platinum-selling albums and had two number-one singles in the UK before they split up in 2001.
The five members went on to solo careers in music and theatre and the band reformed again for a tour in 2012. Steps last reunited in 2017, and released the album Tears On The Dancefloor.
Posting the news of the latest comeback on her own Instagram page, Richards said: "It's been a long time coming but we are so proud to present the next chapter to the Steps story."
Watkins posted: "EXCITED MUCH??? WE ARE!!"
