The band reunited in 2009 after 20 years apart, during which they fell out amid a bitter dispute over royalties, and they went on to release a new album, Once More, play concerts, and produce a successful documentary titled Soul Boys of the Western World.

They embarked on a world tour last year (15), and now frontman Tony Hadley has confirmed the musicians are set to part ways once again following the conclusion of the shows.

"We are done now. We have just finished our tour in Hong Kong. We did a year and a half. That's enough," the singer tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper. "We won't do anything now for about four or five years. I don't want to get the band back permanently.

The stunt by eventual third-placed Fearne MCCann, which aired in December (15), provoked a total of 1,448 complaints to broadcast network ITV and staff at TV watchdog The Office of Communications (Ofcom).

However, Ofcom bosses announced on Monday (11Jan16) they will not be pursuing an investigation because the gruesome consumption of live critters is part of the show's format.
