Kevin Simm is getting back together with his Liberty X bandmates following his winning stint on The Voice.
Kevin first found fame with the Just A Little singers in the 2000s, but they split in 2007 and reunited on a couple of occasions, including U.K. TV show The Big Reunion, when they reformed for a documentary, in 2013.
Kevin relaunched himself as a solo star on The Voice and he emerged the winner in April (16), but it appears he will also be working with his former bandmates Michelle Heaton, Tony Lundon, Kelli Young and Jessica Taylor, once more.
Michelle tells Britain's The Sun newspaper they have booked some live shows and Kevin will be joining them despite his solo stardom.

Kevin Simm knew there was "no guarantee" he would find success on The Voice.
The 35-year-old singer originally found fame with chart-topping band Liberty X in the early noughties, before the group disbanded in 2007. He has since struggled to make money through his singing, so decided to give BBC talent show The Voice a chance.
On Saturday night (09Apr16), Kevin was crowned winner of the show, but insists he never predicted his victory.
"You know there are no guarantees," he told the Daily Mirror. "You have to work hard to try and make it work. Nobody I met during my time on The Voice wanted to be famous – they did it because they love singing."

After his victory was announced, the father of two said: "I can't believe it. I'm so grateful to everyone who has voted for me.

Michelle Keegan has been forced to defend herself after receiving accusations that she faked a double mastectomy. Keegan recently discovered that she carried the mutated gene BRCA2, which gave her an 80% chance of developing breast cancer and a 30% chance of developing ovarian cancer. She opted to have a double mastectomy, to reduce the risk of developing cancer and the Liberty X singer was recently a bridesmaid at a friend’s wedding, having recovered from the surgery.
Sadly, a number of Twitter users have accused her of faking her mastectomy and have questioned her decision to wear a low-cut dress at the wedding, The Mirror reports. Heaton had a number of replies for them, putting the naysayers well and truly in their place. Amongst other messages, she wrote “no I didn't fake my double mastectomy (sick twisted people who wrote that should be blocked from using this site),” and “The "horrible" lump below my Collar bone is a loop recorder, which continuously records my heart as I have to have a pacemaker fitted.”
Heaton also explained that the dress seen in the pictures was chosen for her as a bridesmaid and she rounded matters off by thanking those who had shown her support during her difficult time of late. “I am now gonna enjoy my Xmas eve with my family, but as always thank You for those who've supported me,” she wrote at the end of her defence. Hopefully that should silence the doubters.
