It was the news hip hop fans had been waiting for - the long-awaited reunion of N-Dubz.

Earlier this week, the group confirmed they were getting back together for an arena tour later this year, including a visit to Bournemouth.

Dappy, Tulisa and Fazer took to social media to tell their fans the good news, also revealing their new song Charmer would be released on Thursday, May 19.

A 40-second video shared by group members showed a helicopter flying over London with the trio later emerging on to a landing strip.

The group originally announced plans for a two-year hiatus to focus on their solo careers in 2011 but have not released any new material since.
