Various members of The Pussycat Dolls have gone on to forge other careers since their split in 2010 - most notably X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger and the ubiquitous Ashley Roberts, who apparently says 'yes' to any TV/reality show offer that comes her way.

Now, however, the American girl group are reportedly in talks for a reunion and tour next year, according to The Sun.

Scherzinger and her bandmates Ashley Roberts, Jessica Sutta, Kimberly Wyatt and Melody Thornton are all apparently on board, although it's not clear whether Carmit Bachar - who has since denounced Scherzy and her hogging of the limelight as the reason for their split - will take part.

They quote an 'insider' as saying: "Talk of the girls ­getting back together has been rife for a few years now and they have finally found a time which works for them all. They are still deciding whether it will involve a full tour or just a handful of performances but they are excited to be getting out there together again.

“The girls feel the time is right to let bygones be bygones and put any differences they had behind them and celebrate the great songs they made. As well as their old tunes, they are hoping to treat fans with new music, too."
