"Rollermania" is set to return to the UK after the Bay City Rollers announced a comeback tour almost 40 years on from the height of their fame.

Formed at the end of the 1960s, the then Scots boyband enjoyed huge success both in the UK and abroad with their distinctive tartan outfits and upbeat pop tunes like Bye Bye Baby and Shang-a-Lang.

They had a massive teen following, sold more than 100 million records and have been described as the "One Direction of their day".

Of the original line-up, singer Les McKeown, Alan Longmuir and Stuart Wood are set to reform and have promised "a very special Christmas present to all the fans that have kept the faith with the band over the years".
