British pop trio Atomic Kitten will reunite in style next year, after failing to find success as solo artists.
The Whole Again hitmakers - Jenny Frost, Natasha Hamilton and Liz McClarnon - took a break in January so Hamilton could spend time with her young son Josh and the other two could launch solo careers.
But McClarnon and Frost failed to set the charts alight - so they are all reteaming, with a new single Cradle due out in January.
But the girls will have to wait before they can return to the studio - Hamilton is due to give birth again in January (05) and Frost will marry her fiance Dominic Thrupp in the New Year.
A source says: "They always said they would come back and that's exactly what they are doing. They won't disappoint the public with their new material.
"Everyone is really excited about their new stuff. The girls are going to be back better than they ever were before."
