The album contains re-recordings of three classic tracks - My Camera Never Lies, Piece Of Action and The Land Of Make Believe - and a host of new songs.

The F-Z Of Pop was produced by Mike Stock, of Stock, Aitken and Waterman fame.

Cheryl Baker said: “I cannot tell you how happy I am to have been back in the studio, my favourite place and with the genius that is Mike Stock. I am so proud of this new album and I know Fizz fans will love it too.”

Jay added: “Despite the challenges over the years, we are more united than ever.

"The fans have been with us all the way and we are really looking forward to performing these new songs and hope you enjoy the new album.”
