A host of nineties and noughties boy and girl bands are reuniting for [uuid=7e7099ff-038f-42d0-a1e2-b910f8662b37]Atomic Kitten, 5ive andB*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."
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."
