OK, so they are just supporting Backstreet Boys, but if their revival means the end of skinny jeans and the resurgence of cargo pants, it can only be a good thing

News that will warm the hearts of every 90s-obsessed BuzzFeed reader. All Saints – in many ways the band the Spice Girls could have been – are set to make a glorious comeback next year, albeit in the form of a Backstreet Boys support slot. But put aside the grief of knowing that you essentially exist just to warm up a thousand blotto hen-nighters there to see a middle-aged man ask the eternal question: "Am I sexual?", because this is great news.
There's still a mountain to climb – when Take That reformed, for example, they weren't displaced at the top of Google by a shop that sells overpriced jumpers – but the potential for a full-scale All Saints comeback is huge. Not least, it might herald the rebirth of the cargo pant – the voluminous, utilitarian trouser cast into the wilderness by the skinny-jean uprising of 2002. Lost in Showbiz would relish wearing cargo pants again, not least because the inevitable cries of "Oi, Shaznay!" that tend to accompany each outing would not necessarily be pejorative any more.
