I am really enjoying the big Reunion show but i find it a bit misleading. Most of the bands on the programme have been back together before this programme and yet it ignores this fact.
5ive was back together in 2006 but it failed
Atomic Kitten have reformed a few times
and 911 have been back since 2010? ish
Now i know 5ive and Atomic Kitten other reunions have both been with different versions of the band but i still think the programme should state that theses bands have reformed before this Reunion

I didn't know this at all I took it as if all "involved" knew nothing and were "trying" to get back together for this "reunion" .... so is this one of these programmes that ITV KNEW but to "mislead" the viewers .... whats next its all running to a "script" .... good god! (I briefly caught I think was 1st episode and at end on this weeks one .... looked like their was "tension" in 5ive over a band member (without original member J in it) .... if this is another "scripted" show god help ITV and ITV2 as its seems like thats all they live on! (sorry if its gone off topic ... but can ITV actually make a decent programme without all this "drama")

no not at all. Cleary Itv didnt want the other comebacks to be mentioned as it would spoil the whole first time we have been in the same room moment wouldnt it?

Because it would make the show look bad. They want to make it look like they're doing something new and special. It would ruin it if they were all like 'yeah they reformed before but no1 curr lol'

Typical ITV ... I honestly admit I thought that everything "going on" was what it meant that all involved were trying to get "together" for this reunion .... Oh well ITV you shot yourself in the foot on this one!

I also took it that the "reunions" were all done in an episode style ie "5ive" and then "atomic kitten" etc but guess not so they run it altogether up to the main event I gather

But they mentioned at the end of first episode like we meet the members of "the honeyz" so its slightly misleading but then again everything on ITV2 actually IS!

I don't know how Sky done their "steps reunion" but possibly was more of a decent job to this (go back and forth between all involved - whats the point?)

I didn't know some had already reformed, but the show is good. I am enjoying the inside info and doesn't Richie look so healthy.
I need to get me some Australian sun.

It is generally recognised that a band (in music) is an ensemble of people that play musical instruments - jazz band, marching band, rock band.

To differentiate an ensemble of harmonising singers (well sometimes they do anyway ) is called a group - girl group, vocal group [a boy band would be technically better described as a boy group]

i noticed this too i wonder if they mention the Honeyz taking part of that Itv show a few years back "Hit me baby one more time"

After watching tonight although Jenny`s not taking part i though it would have been good to also hear from her and her time in the band and how she felt when AK split

yes i forgot about the Honeyz as well. i really think its quite low of Atomic Kitten to reform without Jenny. She was part of thire huge success not Kerry

Possibly more of a plug for Kerry .... as she already as a "payloan" ad being shown on ITV

One wonders where ITV get their ideas from for half of these shows and yet we as viewers are led to believe its "real" .... just look at TOWIE thats "scripted" but people will believe THAT more than anything else in the real world!

i was looking back at Atomic Kittens singles last night and they had some bluddy good songs with Jenny. If they bring out any new songs with Kerry it will bomb. Jenny has a ver y loyal fan base and it seems most of Kittens fans dont want kerry back in the group

Being honest though does anyone really think ... that any out of the "reunion" will have success again? I use to be into Five personally but I can't see it - Mind you shows you how "evil" Simon Cowell really is .... someone wants to QUIT .... answer is NO .... but go off on one then we will call it a day

To be fair, the timing was all wrong for Jenny. She's just had babies hasn't she?

Grown up answer well done

No one is saying stop watching it. just stating facts. Itv either think that its watching public are thick and the fans wont know about the other comebacks or they do not care about the watching public

it's a light entertainment show, they seem to skip all their singles that flopped last night too, but does that matter?

they are making a show here, they need to make it at least appear as if there is some sort of demand for their comeback, and by saying 'actually atomic kitten have been going for a few years but nobody really notived', it's not going to make compelling viewing is it?

Its all about making as much controversy as possible

I think my fave part so far is the parent chats about "going back to band" as if its going to be anything like it was before, its a reality tv show and concert.... thats it no big record deals and tours LOL
