Simm, who hasn't had too much success since winning 'The Voice UK' (his single peaked at number 24 in the UK charts), seems to be ecstatic with his new gig.
Delighted to announce me joining @wetwetwetuk as their new lead singer! I’m really excited for the opportunity and to open up a new chapter in my career. I grew up listening to the Wet’s and ‘Goodnight Girl’ was in my set list when I started off doing the pubs and clubs 20

Marti Pellow, who was the lead singer of the band up until last year when the guys disbanded for a second time, is embarking on his own solo tour this year hitting spots in Scotland, along with Belfast and Dublin too. There's been no word yet on what he makes of the new foursome.
