Spike, 40, said he couldn’t wait to perform at what will be the band’s first appearance on the Isle of Wight.

Having first found fame with Jimmy as dancers on ‘The Hit Man and Her’, the late-night ITV show that also propelled Take That to stardom, he said the band would be feeling just as nostalgic as the audience. “For anyone of a similar age to myself it was their best time but it was our best time too,” he said. “It was just mental. There was such a buzz about boybands and pop music in general. It was such a fun time and we cannot wait to relive it with you this Summer.

Organiser’s said; “Heart-throbs 911 were one of the biggest selling acts in the UK in the 90’s and having completed a 16-date sell out arena tour in recent years their energy and charisma is guaranteed to enchant fans at our family friendly festival this August.”

Other artists already announced for Jack Up The Summer are 80s synth-pop band Heaven 17, 90s boyband East 17 and reggae legends Aswad.

The event takes place at its new location, North Fairlee Farm just outside of Newport. Early Bird Weekend and Day tickets are on sale, available online at jackupthesummer.co.uk as well as over the counter at Island outlets including the County Press office in Newport.
