The Pussycat Dolls, one of the biggest girl groups since the Spice Girls, are reuniting after splitting 10 years ago. 

Singer Nicole Scherzinger confirmed the rumours of a comeback in an Instagram post, sending fans into a frenzy. 

The US pop band split in 2010 after achieving huge success with hits such as 'Don't Cha' and 'Buttons'. 

Scherzinger tells UK tabloid The Sun the band has "grown so much" in that time. 

"First of all, I hope it's different because WE are different. It is 10 years on now. We all bring our own unique gifts to the group," she said. 

However, not all of the original line up will be returning to the band. Melody Thornton will not be taking to the stage with the rest of the group.

Despite some qualms about Thornton's absence, Pussycat Doll fans have erupted with joy at the news of the reunion

"Here we gooooooooo... I may die when they sing 'Buttons'," one Instagram comment read. 

"The Pussycat Dolls had 0 bad songs, if we're being honest," another fan tweeted. 

"One of the reason why I'm gay is because of Pussycat Dolls. I remember dancing 'Hush Hush' as a school performance. What a good time to be a gay!" 

The Pussycat Dolls reunion tour kicks off in the UK, with nine dates in April next year.
