1980s pop group Kajagoogoo are to re-form and will stage the first UK tour with their original line-up in more than 25 years, they have announced.

The band, fronted by singer Limahl - famed for his mullet hairstyle - had hits in the early 1980s with songs including Ooh To Be Ah and Big Apple.

They split months after their biggest hit, Too Shy, went to number one.

Limahl, 50 - real name Christopher Hamill - said it had "taken 25 years to grow up". The tour begins in September.

Hamill left the band in 1983 and was replaced as lead singer by bass guitarist Nick Beggs.

The original five-piece line-up briefly re-formed for VH1's Bands Reunited programme in 2004.
