The feisty trio, now called MKS, have thanked Facebook for sparking their unlikely reunion – and a round of peace talks.
Stormy (?) singer Keisha Buchanan, 28, said she and redhead Siobhán Donaghy managed to bury the beef that led to Siobhán quitting the original line up 11 years ago.
She said the answers their other band mate Mutya Bueno, 27, gave during a TV interview sowed the first seeds for the trio’s comeback, helping to broker a peace deal.‘I remember sitting on my couch watching Mutya on Lorraine, just after I’d left the Sugababes. Lorraine said “You might as well call Siobhán and get the original band back together”.
‘I could see Mutya thinking “Perhaps”. That was the start.’
‘Me and Siobhán had to sit down and have that conversation before anything else,’ Buchanan said.
There were a lot of things misconstrued over the years and we weren't in a good place. But we reached an understanding and were able to move forward.'
Now, the group is ready to leave their troubles behind and reveal they are releasing a new album next year, though it might be a little different from the sound they created fourteen years ago.
'I think it's a step up from the first album,' Mutya explains. 'I just hope people will enjoy it. Actually, I know people will enjoy it!'
