Everybody stay calm – Atomic Kitten are reuniting.

The girl band have announced that they will reform in 2022 to celebrate 22
years since the release of their debut album, Right Now.

It seems only right that the anniversary is celebrated, since their first album saw the band stay in the top 100 for 37 weeks when they first broke onto the scene in 2000-2001.

As one of the country’s most loved girl groups, Liverpudlians Elizabeth McClarnon, Natasha Hamilton and Jenny Frost have achieved global success.

The trio topped the charts in 19 countries, had 13 top 10 singles, 15 top 20s, three number ones and a chart topping album to match.

20 years since the release of their monster hit Whole Again, Liz, Tash and Jenny reunited for an impromptu one week stint to support the England football team,
with the release of a reimagined version of their classic hit with a Euro’s 2020 twist for England fans.

Atomic Kitten reforming? Best news ever (Picture: ITV/Rex/Shutterstock)

The track re entitled Southgate You’re The One reached number four in the iTunes music chart and gave the girls another top 20 official chart hit to
add to their credits.

This campaign also saw the girls reunite after 15 years to perform as a
trio live in Trafalgar Square for the Mayors of London Office Euro Final Official Party.

It seems the spontaneous reunion got the girls excited, and inspired them to join forces once more.

In a statement, they said: ‘Last summer we got to experience a glimpse of our previous lives and we loved it.

’15 years later with no rehearsals and nervous as ever we took to the stage in the middle of Trafalgar Square where the atmosphere in London was alive, as England came together to support the final of Euro2020.

‘It was enough to light the fire between us and we can’t wait to see what new memories we can make 2022.’

Following the news that Atomic Kitten are reuniting next year, the band have since announced that they will be joining boy band Blue on an arena tour of the UK and Ireland on the Blue 20th Anniversary Heart and Soul Tour.

Speaking individually on their reactions to going on tour with Blue, the Kittens said they are ‘super excited’ to be back together.

‘I must admit, when the offer of the tour first came in, I was super nervous but I’m a great believer in signs, so when I noticed that the Liverpool show was on my Mums birthday, knew my angels above were showing me the way,’ shared Liz.

Natasha also described their brief Euros reunion as as ‘whirlwind,’ but their friendship has ‘stood the test of time.’

‘The girls are the big sisters that I never had. We are going to have so much fun and bring back all the nostalgia to the fans who have supported us throughout the years.’

With show dates already in the 2022 diary and an exciting year to come, this girl band are very much proving that they are still very much alive and purring!

Tickets for Blue’s tour go on sale on December 3.
