ICONIC: UB40 are one of the most successful ever bands

Pop and reggae legends Ali Campbell, Mickey Virtue and Astro have filmed a new music video for their 1998 hit Come Back Darling.

The track reached number 10 in the UK charts.

Filmed in Antigua, the clip showcases the best the island has to offer despite the horrific devastation causes by Hurricane Irma earlier this year.

Chatting about the move, UB40 frontman Ali Campbell said: "Our music is inspired by the beautiful Caribbean islands and, of course, it has always been close to our hearts.

"Putting a whole new meaning to the lyrics of Come Back Darling has been a brilliant experience – and we hope it lands the message amongst the Great British public that Caribbean locals really do want them to ‘come back’."

Even Virgin boss Richard Branson saw his private Caribbean island of Necker Island destroyed due to the national disaster.

Taking to Twitter, the business tycoon shared a string of images of the wreckage back in September.

"Necker damage huge, but BVI #Irma story is not about Necker," Richard tweeted.

"It's about 1000s of people who've lost homes and livelihoods."

He added: "We have seen first-hand just how ferocious and unforgiving this storm was."
