Scottish band Wet Wet Wet is to reform for a one-off show in Glasgow to mark its 25th anniversary.

The band will appear at Glasgow Green on 20 July - the same location it played in 1987 for a critically-acclaimed open air concert.

It will be the first concert the band has played in the city in five years.

Marti Pellow, Graeme Clark, Tommy Cunningham and Neil Mitchell formed Wet West Wet during the 1980s in Clydebank, West Dunbartonshire.

The band's first number one hit in 1988 was a cover version of the Beatle's song With a Little Help from My Friends.

Its biggest hit came in 1994 with a cover of The Troggs song, Love Is All Around from the soundtrack of the film Four Weddings and a Funeral.

The song stayed at number one in the UK for 15 weeks.
