The much-loved Saturday morning British children's television programme, which was helmed by Cat Deeley, Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly, is set to make a comeback to mark their 20th anniversary in 2018 after it was first broadcasted in August 1998.

And the 'Stomp' hitmaker's have revealed they have been invited back on the music show, which last aired in 2003, and "have to" return to the channel because they think they were on the programme "more" than any other band.

Speaking to the Daily Star Online, Ian 'H' Watkins - who often co-presented 'SM:TV' - said: "We have to do 'SM:TV', they asked us. We were probably on that show more than any other band so it makes sense."

And the iconic 90s group are desperate for certain games to return when the show is brought back for a one-off special.

Claire Richards said: "I hope they bring back Cat The Dog, Wonky Donkey, all that stuff."

And the 40-year-old has admitted she holds fond memories of her time on the show.

She said: "I remember we were on 'SM:TV' the morning after the BRITs, the one year they had it on a Friday.

"I got to bed at six o' clock in the morning and went on suffering wearing 'Deeper Shade Of Blue' shoulder pads."

And fellow band members hope other artists such as Aqua and the Spice Girls will also feature on the forthcoming extravaganza.

Lisa Scott-Lee, 42, said: "Aqua are back, one of the first things we went to was the Barbie Girl launch and being drunk on wine."

And lead singer Faye Tozer said: "We went to Billie Piper's 16th birthday party and that was the day I got my dreads done. I walked in and everybody went, 'What the f***!' Or the Spice Girls being outside the make-up room and Victoria saying, 'Oi are you Steps?' They were fun times."
