The pop stars of a generation may be making an epic comeback and Bring It All Back.
The group, who lifted the hearts of millions with Reach, Don’t Stop Movin’ and S Club Party, are in talks to reunite, reports say.
They hit the music scene in 1999 with Bring It All Back, and may join together to record first new music in 20 years with all seven members.
Tina Barrett, who was part of the band with Jon Lee, Jo O’Meara, Rachel Stevens, Hannah Spearitt, Paul Cattermole and Bradly McIntosh, confirmed the plan to The Sun.
She says they’ve been inspired by Steps’ successful return to the UK charts this month, after they released their new album, What The Future Holds.
Tina said: “We definitely want to do something new together.
“We’re all older now so we could do something that reflects how we are now — not such a teeny-bopper sound, something more credible.
“Looking at a band like Steps who are quite similar, they’ve done new music and they’ve done incredibly well. We’d be silly not to.
“Everyone really enjoyed the last reunion so this time around everyone’s more up for it.
“I’ve chatted to pretty much everyone and I think we’re all up for it. So it’s just about getting it in the diary. I’m pretty sure it will happen.”
She also said: “The fact Giovanna Fletcher played Reach in I’m A Celeb, I think that was a sign. That was so cute.”
The band did reunite for a special appearance for Children in Need back in 2014, and again for a 15th anniversary tour the following year, but they didn’t have new music.
Tina has released her solo single Private Dance Instructor and Jo is reportedly working on an album for 2021.
Hannah has recently had a second child and Rachel has been performing at Proud Embankment in London.
Tina insists it won’t be awkward if the group were to get back together, despite Hannah and Paul breaking up as a couple following the last tour.
Tina explained: “Obviously it’s life — you’re with someone and then you break up and some people still have to work with them.
“Sometimes it is hard but you do have to separate work from real life.
“Hannah and Paul are both very professional so it’s fine. I know Paul is up for it.”
