The 'Deeper Shade of Blue' group have reunited for a Sky Living series, which will see them attempt to put their acrimonious split behind them and decide if they want to work on new material. Speaking about their chances of chart success again, the fivesome were confident that there is still room for them.
"There hasn't been anything like us for a long time, but pop is still out there," Claire Richards said. "Nobody really realises it's been ten years since we split up, which is good, because it means people haven't forgotten us and our music hasn't dated."
Ian 'H' Watkins agreed: "There's definitely a place for pop, it's just a question of whether we can fit into the jigsaw. I wouldn't want to force it on anyone, and it's up to the public to make that decision.
"That's where a lot of bands fail I think, when they expect people to adore them again. If there's demand, I'd consider it."
"Times have changed, but we are in a recession and Steps' music was very light-hearted and fun, so there could be a place for that in today's society," Lisa Scott-Lee concluded. "What else is interesting is that there aren't any boy/girl pop groups out there at the moment, so there's definitely a gap there."
Steps release The Ultimate Collection on October 3. Steps Reunion begins on Sky Living at 9pm on Wednesday, September 28.
