'The Big Reunion': Five possible spinoffs

By
The penultimate episode of The Big Reunion airs this evening on ITV2 (March 21), and we're already unsure as to how we will cope when 5ive, B*Witched, 911 and co are no longer entertaining us with their dark tales of '90s pop excess.

Abz from 5ive has become a hilarious must-watch figure of fun and the heartbreaking split between B*Witched's Lindsay and 911's Lee has been a weirdly emotional watch. The whole thing has had us digging out our old Live & Kicking magazines and wondering whatever happened to Let Loose.

The show's proved a hit for ITV2, so they're going to need to bring it back in some form in 2014. Digital Spy has five suggestions for Big Reunion spinoffs.

The Big Britpop Reunion
Robbie Williams's worst nightmare - a Britpop Big Reunion special. Bring back the bands who made the Good Mixer the place to be (or avoid - depending on your viewpoint) in 1996. Relive the days of TFI Friday, Ben Sherman shirts and Baddiel and Skinner by reuniting the likes of Menswe@r, Shed Seven, Sleeper, Powder and Cast to relive the glory days of jingly-jangly indie pop choons.



The Big '80s Reunion
The '90s had brilliant boybands. The early '00s brought us brilliant pop. But the '80s had amazing hair, incredible fashion and more synths than you could shake a copy of Fast Forward magazine at. Bros, Culture Club, Bananarama, Kajagoogoo, Soft Cell and Wham! are just a few of our suggestions. And yes, we know Bananarama are still technically together.



The Big Solo Comeback
The Big Reunion has been brilliant, but it's been missing a few key figures from the '90s and '00s pop scene. Kavana, Adam Rickitt, Billie Piper, Shaggy... Someone at ITV is probably on the phone to Mark Morrison as we speak.



The Big 'X Factor' Reunion
Combining two classic ITV franchises, why not give a second (or third, or sometimes fourth) shot at fame to those singers and groups cast aside by the Cowell machine? If we can get Brookstein, Same Difference, that one who was like a little Lenny Henry, Eoghan Quigg, Journey South and the Macdonald Brothers in the same room, we'll have a hit on our hands.



The Big Smiths Reunion
The most unlikely of all unlikely reunions. But if anyone can bring Marr and Morrissey back together, surely it has to be the channel that brought us Mark Wright's Hollywood Nights, Top Dog Model and TOWIE: Live. We'll hold our hands up now, this one might be a bit of a long shot.
