An official musical based on the songs of Steps is in the works.
Band member Lisa Scott-Lee has spilled that the five piece are working on their own stage show.
Formed in 1997, pop group Steps had a string of hits in the 1990s and 00s including ‘5, 6, 7, 8’, ‘Tragedy’, ‘One for Sorrow’ and a cover of Diana Ross’ ‘Chain Reaction’.
There were recently rumours that a musical using the songs of Steps to tell the story of Princess Diana’s life was in the works, supposedly title ‘One For Sorrow’.
But Scott-Lee insisted that the group had nothing to do with that project and were instead working on their own production.
She told 98FM’s Big Breakfast with Rebecca and Brendan: “We are aware of [One For Sorrow] but I can confirm that Steps are not affiliated with that musical. It’s nothing to do with us, to be honest”.
Scott-Lee went on: “The reason we are not affiliated with that one is because we are working on our own. We have been for a while before we saw this poster. I think it’s important for people to know we aren’t endorsing that one.
“We’ve always said if we were going to do a musical we would want to endorse it. It’s our music, we are the ones who have been singing it for 23 years.
“We love Steps so we want it to be done in the right way.”
No other information about the musical was provided so for now, watch this space!
Scott-Lee and her Steps bandmates, Lee Latchford-Evans, Claire Richards, Faye Tozer and Ian “H” Watkins recently reunited to release their sixth studio album What the Future Holds, which will be out on November 27.
