Kym Marsh teases Hear’Say ‘reunion’ and OMG

Pure and simple, we'd be there


by Carl Smith |

What a week for fans of early noughties pop, eh? Steps have chucked out their new single What the Future Holds, S Club 7 have a new member in the form of Geordie Shore's Amelia Lily (yep) and - HOLD UP - Kym Marsh has just teased a Hear'Say 'reunion.'

Next you'll be telling us Von Dutch caps inflatable furniture are back in fashion, for crying out loud.

With Noel Sullivan, Danny Foster, Suzanne Shaw, Myleene Klass and Kym once claiming they'd 'never' get back together, it seems the Popstars fivesome might've had a change of heart.

But things aren't quite as, er, pure and simple as they seem.


Though the members of the group have kept pretty shtum over a Spice Girls-style comeback, Kym took to Twitter to say, 'Had a dream last night that we reformed Hear’say! 😂'.

Babe, we're pretty sure we have that dream EVERY. SINGLE. NIGHT. WITHOUT. FAIL.

And fans were quick to express their interest in a potential reunion. One replied, 'Make it happen... Oh to hear Everybody, Play to Win, Angel in my heart, The way to your love, Back down to Zero & We go on all in one live show Partying faceSmiling face with sunglassesMan dancing.'

Another reasoned, 'To be honest, I think that’s the kind of news 2020 absolutely needs right now!! #readytobuymyreuniontourtickets'.

Some weren't quite so keen on the idea, though.

'Surely that's a nightmare?' asked one user.

'Isn't life bad enough right now 😷😂'.

Arguably, these people have no taste.

Hear'Say: where are they now?


Hear'Say - where are they now?

While in the band, Kym was extremely popular, becoming one of the most famous members thanks in part to her high profile relationship with EastEnders actor Jack Ryder.

In January 2002, it was announced that Kym was leaving the band to pursue solo projects. She later revealed that part of the reason for leaving was because she often found herself clashing with fellow bandmates Myleene Klass and Noel Sullivan. In 2006, Kym joined ITV soap opera Coronation Street as Michelle Connor and has won various awards for her acting, including Best Newcomer and Best Dramatic Female Performance at the Soap Awards. Kym announced she was leaving the soap in 2019 after 13 years. Kym has since gone on to present Morning Live alongside Gethin Jones and is now married to army major Scott Ratcliff.

Danny was successfully picked to be in the band, after competing against thousands for a place. However, when the band split 18 months after being put together, he was left high and dry.

Since their split, Danny has taken a step back from the spotlight. He currently performs in his own group, "Danny Foster & The Big Soul Corporation", singing soul and Motown songs. However, he did audition for The Voice UK in 2013, but failed to impress any of the judges and didn't make it through. He also formed a drag act with his Hear'say bandmate Noel Sullivan called Do Blondes Tondres but they split after a few months due to "musical differences." Danny is now married to Victoria Goddard and if you have a scroll on his Instagram you'll see a lot of positive quotes.

Seen as the "Baby Spice" of the group, Hear'Say split just after Suzanne's 21st birthday. But that didn't stop her rising star as she went on to establish herself as a leading lady on the West End, starring as the narrator in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in 2005 and as Janet in The Rocky Horror Show national tour in the same year. She also joined the cast of The Bill in 2007.

The album, Moving On, peaked at No. 2 in the UK Classical Chart and was later certified gold. In 2007, she split from the record company but quickly signed another, releasing, Myleene's Music for Romance, in July of the same year, which went straight to Number One in the Classical Chart.

This all comes after Myleene recently addressed the idea of a reunion; claiming her kids want to see it happen.

Speaking to the Daily Mail earlier this year, she said, "It's funny because at the stage that I am now – my children don't even realise that I was in a band - well, Ava more so.

"I've gone from 'No, never, it's never going to happen', to my children saying: 'Go on, just do it! We want to be able to see you do all the dance moves!'

"They want to see if I can still dance and remember the words which at the minute would be a miracle with baby brain! I can just about remember my car keys."
