Steps reunion would be “silly” says Steps girl

So, perhaps you should add Steps to that very small group of bands who will never reform (current membership: The Smiths and Stone Roses).

Former Stepper Claire Richards, back on the telly recently on ITV’s ‘Popstar To Operastar’, has told the Daily Mail that a reunion of her former pop outfit would be “a bit silly”.

Richards: “We do get offers all the time, which we consider, although up until now it’s never really been right for everybody. Maybe it’s just my age, but I can’t really see myself up on stage in one of those bright costumes doing what we did. It’s taken me this long to get to a place where I’m happy with what I’m doing and trying to build a career of my own. To drop all that to go back seems a bit silly”.

Sensible girl that Claire. Oh, hang on, she added a proviso of “never say never” at the end of the interview. Silly girl that Claire.

In case any of you are interested, former ‘X-Factor’ winner Joe McElderry won the second series of ‘Popstar To Operastar’. Expect a total flop of an opera career to follow, before he shows up on next year’s ‘Dancing On Ice’.
