Reunited British pop stars Atomic Kitten have headed back into the studio to record their first new material in nine years.

The original line-up of the girl group - Kerry Katona, Natasha Hamilton and Liz MCClarnon - recently reformed for U.K. reality Tv show The Big Reunion and a number of gigs around Britain, and now they are preparing to launch a new assault on the charts.

Revealing the news on Twitter.com, Hamilton writes, "I'm off the studio to vocal @AtomicKOfficial potential come-back single (sic)!! Could today get anymore freakin' exciting!"

Atomic Kitten's last original single, Someone like Me, was released in 2004, a year after their last studio album, Ladies Night.
