Watch out One Direction, as the Bay City Rollers announced a comeback tour almost 40 years on from the height of their fame.

The Scottish boyband enjoyed huge success around the world with their distinctive tartan outfits and upbeat pop tunes, like this cover of The Four Season's Bye Bye Baby which sold over a million copies and was the UK's top selling single of 1975.

The band split in 1978, with bitter battles over money between band members and managers dragging on for decades, and an infamous on-stage fight between Les and Stuart.

Of the original line-up, singer Les McKeown, Alan Longmuir and Stuart Wood are promising "a very special Christmas present to all the fans that have kept the faith with the band over the years", kicking off their tour in Glasgow in December. Former member Eric Faulkner may also join the tour, but Derek Longmuir has ruled himself out - he's busy as a cardiology nurse, a career he's enjoyed for 28 years.
