The Big Reunion: B*Witched’s Sinéad O’Carroll admits ‘The first week was a bit weird’
Guest post by Entertainment reporter Mark Boardman for Unreality TV.
The Big Reunion returns to ITV2 this evening and tonight, the latest episode tells the stories of two girl groups Honeyz and B*Witched, who both had success with top-ten hits in the 1990s and early 2000s, as they reunite for a one-off concert at London’s Hammersmith Apollo
Check out our exclusive interview with Sinéad O’Carroll from B*Witched below….
Q. What would you like to see happen after the TV show and tour?
That is really up in the air. I think because Edele didn’t even want to do this in the first place. I think even getting to the rehearsal stage in January was even a bit of a task and the fact that we did that and only spent only 2 weeks together in the past 12 years.
The first week was a bit weird, the second week the chemistry was coming back. I think we are all taking this basically as nostalgia really for the moment. Because Lindsay has got her acting and Keavy’s got accounting and they want to pursue different things so it’s one of those things. It’ll be interesting to see what the public think and if there was a bit of traction on that we might sit down and have a conversation about it, but at the moment our head is just at ‘Let’s just do the gig, you know…get back together’. It’s been nice just to do that really.
Q. What do you make of the fan reaction to all of you getting back together again?
The reaction has been really good I have to say. People from years ago have being trying to find us on Twitter and Facebook and it’s just been really really nice.
Sinead added: It’s funny because some of the fans have got kids now and they’re bringing their little kids to the concert which seems really weird (Laughs).
It’s been really surprising and really good. Hopefully they’ll be pleased when they come to see the show.
Q. Will you enjoy it more this time round?
It’s a different industry now and I was really looking forward to the two weeks of rehearsals and then I found it bought up so many different things. I am so excited that we will be doing the tour and travelling around. I am really looking forward to it.
Q. Are you looking forward to performing in Dublin?
Yeah, YES! We have never done the 02, it used to be ‘The Point Depot’ and it’s a new venue now so it’s really exciting.
The day we play the 02 in London will be my 40th Birthday! How cool is that!!
Q. Have you brushed up on your dance routines.
Oh my god, Yeah, but we’ve changed a few bits and added a few bits. We’ve got a few more days rehearsals before the 26th.
The Big Reunion starring B*Witched and The Honeyz airs on ITV2 this Thursday at 9pm.
