With bands like The Stone Roses and Steps having very high profile comeback tours, more chart-toppers of the past could be enticed back to the spotlight and the newest rumours suggest Noughties girlband Atomic Kitten will reform.

The band had huge hits during the late 1990s and early noughties including Whole Again, Right Now and covers of The Bangles' Eternal Flame and Blondie's The Tide Is High. They formed in 1997, but announced a hiatus in 2004 and have not performed full-time since.

Following the success of Steps' documentary and subsequent reformation, Living TV are eager to recreate the process with other bands. An insider in the company said "we're in discussion stages at the moment" and that there have been a number of approaches from artists.

The Liverpool-born girl band, consisting of Natasha Hamilton, Jenny Frost and Liz McClarnon, were photographed outside a London pub last month after meeting up for discussions.

Former, and original, member Kerry Katona was absent from the meet-up, indicating she will not appear in the reformed line-up. Heidi Range, current member of Sugababes, was also in the original line-up but replaced before the band gained commercial success.

Nineties pop band Steps were the subject of a four-part documentary late last year which followed their turbulent return to the spotlight, before their reissue of a greatest hits album went straight in at No.1. The band will now embark on a UK and Ireland arena tour in April.
