Every time a band reforms, I always think to myself: “Well, at least that’s all of them now”. Then another one turns up. This week it’s S Club 7 (all seven of them), who have confirmed rumours that they are reuniting – reportedly for a tour and two album deal.
Actually, we first reported that this seemed to be happening back in November last year. I’d deliberately forgotten about it though. All it took was 20 minutes of repeatedly banging my head against the filing cabinet next to my desk. Now I’m going to have to do that all over again. Oh well.
Last time this came up, it was rumoured that the group had been inspired to come back after seeing the success enjoyed by the reunited Steps. But no, according to the Mirror it’s because of the Olympics and the Queen’s jubilee. Because that makes perfect sense.
A source told the tabloid: “What with the Olympics coming up and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert, there’s a real British feelgood factor at the moment. The band figured it was a case of now or never”.
