Fans of 90s bands Atomic Kitten and Blue will no doubt recall that Kitten singer Liz McClarnon and Blue’s Lee Ryan got engaged in 2003, but later split up…
However, they have been reunited for ITV2’s The Big Reunion, and it was during the show’s latest edition that Lee hinted that Liz may still have some feelings for him, but she was quick to deny that she has.
Speaking to the camera of the moment he and Liz encountered each other at ITV’s studios – when Lee claims that Liz “dodged” him – Lee said, “I was like, ‘Hey, hello, everyone, how you doing?’
“She just went really weird with me and I just saw her dodging me whichever way I went.
“I kinda grabbed her and went, ‘Hey darling, you all right?’ and she was just edging away from me.”
He added, “I don’t know why that is the case, unless she still has feelings for me?!”
However, Liz took to Twitter to set the record straight, and when a fan asked if Lee was right and she did still have some feelings for him, Liz replied, “Seriously?!?! No doll.”
The Sun’s TV Biz adds, “So that’s a clear no to this Big Reunion. The pair first got close in September 2001 when Blue and Atomic Kitten were in New York during the terror attacks. They got engaged in 2003 but later split up.”
However, irrespective of their love lives, Blue are most definitely back, and we have their comeback single – and video – for you below.
Entitled Hurt Lovers, the song and video depicts the story of a young couple who, after a blazing row, are involved in a car crash.
The paper adds, “The song itself talks about fighting to hold on to love despite the pain it might be causing you.”
The Big Reunion continues on ITV on Thursday at 9pm, but for now, here’s the video to Hurt Lovers…
