One of the most iconic pop bands of the 1990s has reunited for a TV documentary, which is set expose their shocking history.
Ace Of Base produced three chart-topping singles after first forming in 1987, including their biggest hits All That She Wants, The Sign and Don’t Turn Around.
Now, the group – consisting of siblings Jonas, Linn, and Jenny Berggren, with Ulf Ekberg – are set to appear in the documentary, All That She Wants: The Unbelievable Story of Ace of Base, which will air in 2024.
In the programme, Ace Of Base recall how Ulf Ekberg encountered death threats from right-wing extremists.
Ulf was even forced to perform with a bulletproof vest, and enlists bodyguards during the band’s global tours.

Jenny Berggren will also reveal that she was assaulted by a German fan in her home.
Back in 2015, Ace Of Base had a mini-revival, when the band released a compilation album of their greatest hits between 1991 and 2005.
Between 1992 and 2002, they released four albums which sold over 30million copies worldwide, making them the third most successful Swedish band ever after ABBA and Roxette.
They performed at the World Music Awards and a concert celebrating the 20th birthday of Princess Victoria of Sweden in 1997.
After Berggren and her sister Malin left the band in 2009, their brother Jonas and band member Ulf Ekberg recruited two new female vocalists.
Following her exit from the band in 2009, Jenny was forced to cancel a 1,200 seat charity gig in her native Sweden after selling only 12 tickets.
Organisers Bellwether Productions said they needed to sell at least 450 tickets to break even.

Its spokesman George Jonasson said: ‘Despite huge interest, exposure and engagement in social, national and local media, we are being forced to cancel.’
‘The reason for this is that we have not managed to sell enough tickets. Anyone who has already paid will get a full refund.’
In 2015, Ulf told ABC News that he didn’t think a reunion was ‘impossible’ but only with ‘the right elements in the next few years’.
But in 2016, Jenny wasn’t so sure,
However, Jenny didn’t seem quite as sure, telling News.com.au: ‘We won’t re-form. […] We’re finished working together but we’re not finished being family together. We have a lot of fun plans in the future but no musical plans’.
In 2018, Jones hinted that a reunion had been discussed, but Linn would never return.
