Big TV Reunion For Boy And Girl Bands

Atomic Kitten, 5ive and Liberty X among groups getting back together for ITV...

A host of nineties and noughties boy and girl bands are reuniting for a new ITV2 show titled The Big Reunion.

Atomic Kitten, 5ive and B*Witched are among the acts getting back together for the series - which will then follow their attempts to recapture their former pop success.

Speaking about his band's meltdown at the height of their success back in 2001, 5ive's Scott Robinson said: "On stage we were the best ever, off stage we were a train wreck. Life in 5ive was mental. It was five years of very hard work. You see the inside of a hotel room, an airport, a radio studio, it's hard."

The boys are reforming as a four-piece, because original member Jay was not interested in taking part.

Scott commented: "I was annoyed with Jay when he said he didn't want to be a part of this. I was really angry because I've personally myself been trying to get this band back together for years and years and someone's let it down. He will be missed."

The Honeyz, 911 and Liberty X are the other three bands featured on the show, which kicks off on 31 January at 9pm.

Liberty X member Jessica Taylor, now married to cricketer Kevin Pietersen, said: "I don't do anything in the spotlight and I haven't done for a really long time. It took me a lot of time to decide whether or not to do it.

"I'm in a very safe place with my life, I'm in a happy little bubble and to step outside of that is really scary. I thought I owed it to the guys to make sure I was sure and I am but I'm petrified."
