– Simon Fuller on the Abba reunion

Swedish pop sensation Abba are set to reunite formally or the first time in 30 years to work with industry supremo Simon Fuller.

The world famous group, consisting of Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad went their separate ways in 1982 after a phenomenal 10 year run.

They recently performed together onstage to celebrate their 30th anniversary, but this will be their first official reunion.

The group has announced they will work with Fuller a "groundbreaking venture that will utilise the very latest in digital and virtual reality technology".

Andersson revealed: "We're inspired by the limitless possibilities of what the future holds and are loving being a part of creating something new and dramatic here. A time machine that captures the essence of who we were. And are."

Music mogul Fuller added: "The creativity and ideas flowing from the members of Abba over the past few months have filled me with great excitement.

"We are exploring a new technological world, with virtual reality and artificial intelligence at the forefront, that will allow us to create new forms of entertainment and content we couldn't have previously imagined."

The full details of their new project will be announced in 2017.

The band broke records back in the day

GMB's Bake Off with three previous winners...

It's the final to end all finals for The Great British Bake Off tonight - so we decided to make breakfast time into cake time by inviting Edd Kimber, Jo Wheatley and Frances Quinn to join us.

And it wouldn't be a Bake Off event without a little competitiveness, so we asked the three previous winners of the competition to rustle up some sweet treats to see which tantalised Kate and Charlotte's tastebuds the most.

We also questioned them on how life has changed since winning the show, who they think will win this year - and who they think could replace Mary Berry!
