Kerry Katona Replaces Jenny Frost As Atomic Kitten Reunite
They were one of the UK’s biggest girl groups during their time and it seems Atomic Kitten are set to jump on the bandwagon and reunite for a tour and to star in their own reality TV show, next year.
And it seems that original member Kerry Katona is to reunite with her bandmates after her replacement in the group fell pregnant and pulled out of a planned reunion.
Kerry originally quit the band just days before the release of breakthrough international hit ‘Whole Again’ and she was replaced by Jenny Frost.
There are reports that surfaced earlier this year which suggested the band, who have been on an extended hiatus since 2004, were lining up a reunion tour, but Jenny denied that Kerry would be part of the comeback.
However, Jenny announced in August of this year that she is pregnant with twins, so it has emerged that Kerry will join them in their comeback which will feature their own reality TV show next year.
Fellow bandmate Natasha Hamilton told Hello! Magazine: “If you’d asked me a few weeks ago (who will be in the band) I’d have said Jenny, no question. Jenny’s the one who came in just as Atomic Kitten took off. She saved the day by joining us at 48 hours’ notice when Kerry said she’d had enough.
“So Jenny built the brand with me and Liz (McClarnon), and I felt that the third place is hers. I really wanted her to do it and I’m gutted that she can’t. For 12 months we’ve been talking, always with the intention that the line-up would be Liz, Jenny and me.
She added: “Everything was ready. We’d agreed to take part in a new TV series about what’s become of the girl and boy bands who dominated the charts in the 90’s and early 2000’s…(But) a double pregnancy is higher risk and Jenny’s now got to put herself first…
“There’s nothing sinister about Jenny being out or Kerry coming in. It’s just how things have panned out.”
What do you think? Are you excited for an Atomic Kitten comeback?
