Kym Marsh confirms Hear’Say are planning 20th anniversary reunion

KYM Marsh has confirmed Hear’Say ARE planning a reunion for their 20th anniversary.

The group were first put together on the 2001 TV talent contest Popstars and are now back “in touch” and planning to mark two decades since they formed.

In an exclusive interview, Kym – who was in the group with Suzanne Shaw, Noel Sullivan, Danny Foster and Myleene Klass – said: “We’re now in a position where we’re all in touch.

"We’ve been chatting over Zoom and reminiscing about old times.

"Talking about it all again, remembering what a journey it was that we’ve all been on, brings it all back. If I hadn’t been on that show I probably wouldn’t be sat here chatting to you now.

“So it’s worth celebrating and marking it and we’re all agreed it would be great to do something to celebrate.

"Whether that’s with all five of us or not, we hope we’ll make it happen and make something of the occasion.”

The Sun first told how the Noughties group were planning a reunion in November although telly star Myleene has refused to take part.

The group had a string of hits including Pure and Simple as well as The Way To You Love.

But Popstars was controversial at the time because it featured memorably unpleasant exchanges with the show’s infamous judge “Nasty” Nigel Lythgoe, who made jibes about Kym’s appearance and, in scenes which shocked the nation, ordered her to lose weight.

However, Kym – who went on to star in Coronation Street and is currently in BBC1’s The Syndicate, which airs on Tuesdays at 9pm – said: “It gave me an amazing start in my career and I will always be grateful for, and it was the first show of its kind.

“Nigel was rude about me, Simon Cowell booed us at the Brits and then launched his own shows off it.

"Looking back, it’s amazing all the things that we went through.”
