Three bankruptcies, two bouts of depression and one VERY saucy appearance in Celebrity Big Brother – yup, Blue have had a pretty hectic year of it, and that’s even without Simon Webbe’s new-found love of ballroom waltzes on* Strictly Come Dancing*.

But it’s all starting to look up for the four-piece boyband, as they’ve just signed a new two-album deal with Sony – AND they’re set to tour the UK next year off the back of their upcoming record.

Speaking to the Mirror’s 3am, the boys – Lee Ryan, Duncan James, Antony Costa and Simon – said they can’t wait to kick-start the band’s comeback.

“2015 is set to be a brilliant year for us and we look forward to sharing our next chapter with the fans,” they said.

“Our new album and tour is a thank you to all those who have stuck by us through the good, the bad and the plain old ugly.”

Ah yes, the ‘ugly’. Lee’s post-CBB stint saw him getting a load of flack off the public for his womanising ways, then he got arrested for alleged drink-driving and for not providing a specimen (though he managed to wee all over a police cell).

And Simon admitted over the weekend that he spiralled into depression after the band stopped getting work, and used to drink a bottle of brandy a day to cope.

Only Ant’s had a semi-decent year – his fiancée Rosanna Jasmin gave birth to their baby daughter Savanna, AND he starred in *Casualty *at the weekend as a burns victim.

But yay! Tickets to Blue’s 16-date 2015 tour go on sale this Friday 7 November.
