Alesha Dixon 5IVE East 17

‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge Alesha Dixon and boybands 5IVE and East 17 are pulling out of an upcoming “Brexit gig” organised by the campaign to vote to leave the European Union, with ‘70s star Rose Royce also reportedly considering doing the same.

The BPop Live event is scheduled to take place at Birmingham’s Genting Arena on June 19th – just four days before the United Kingdom votes on whether to remain within the E.U. However, the company responsible for managing both Dixon and 5ive claimed that they only recently discovered the gig was “more a political rally”.

The Big Reunion Set For A Big Comeback – S Club 7 And East 17 Rumoured


East 17 S Club 7

The Big Reunion provided quality viewing when it was first broadcast, pulling in 1 million viewers per episode, so ITV have decided it’s time for more. Get ready for some past-it bands to be given another shot to embarrass themselves.

Nothing is confirmed yet, but the bands rumoured to be making a comeback via the show are Big Brovaz, A1, Eternal and All Saints, S Club 7 and East 17. Of course, not all of them will be, but if we had a choice, we’d see S Club 7 (their recent performances as a threesome are laughable) and East 17 (just because). If they do indeed sign up, they will be follow in the footsteps of Five, 911, Atomic Kitten and Blue, who all starred in series one. A TV source said last night: “The first series did so well, it was always a no-brainer to give it a second run. We are still in the process of approaching bands, but we are confident of getting brilliant names on board. Names should be confirmed within the next two weeks.” The source added, "The follow-up will give viewers a chance to see the first series’ acts again and fill the gap between now and series two."

Of course, there’s something sad and desperate about the last swansongs attempted by these manufactured bands, but then again, we’re not the ones being sad and pathetic, and it makes for funny TV. All aboard!
