Wham! are set to reform for a one-off gig to mark the band's 30th anniversary, according to reports.

George Michael, who recently recovered from life-threatening pneumonia, and Andrew Ridgeley are planning the "pop extravaganza", the Daily Mirror said.

A source was quoted as saying: "George and Andrew have often said their Club Tropicana days are well behind them. But seeing as their anniversary coincides with George releasing new material, it's one of those 'now or never' moments.

"They probably won't do a long tour or release new material like Take That but they do want to commemorate the event with a big gig... and an even bigger party afterwards!

"Things are still in the early stages but everybody is getting really excited about it."

George is also debuting his new single White Light on June 29, which will be 30 years to the day since his first single with Wham!, called Wham Rap, entered the UK charts.
