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!
Someone give him a project, maybe a reunion perhaps? East 17's Brian Harvey looks bored
