Atomic Kitten 'to reform'

Atomic Kitten are to reform for a new TV show.

Atomic Kitten are to reform for a new TV show.

Management for the 'Whole Again' trio - who experienced a number of line-up changes during the time they were active - are reportedly in negotiations with production companies over the proposed documentary, though it is unclear which members of the band would be taking part.

Insiders claim the trio are one of several acts keen to re-start their careers in the way Steps did last year, reuniting for a TV show before planning a huge comeback tour.

A source told Broadcast magazine: "We have had lots of approaches from artists and broadcasters about recreating the Steps documentary.

"We're only in discussion stages at the moment."

Atomic Kitten formed in 1997 and featured Kerry Katona, Liz McLarnon and Heidi Range.

However, Sugababes singer Heidi left due to creative differences and was replaced in 1999 by Natasha Hamilton.

Kerry left the band shortly before their single 'Whole Again' reached number one in the UK chart in 2001 because of her pregnancy, and Jenny Frost joined the group in her place.

The trio went on to score two further UK number one singles, before going on indefinite hiatus in 2004, making just a few sporadic appearances together in the following years.
