Sugababes scrap plans for 20th anniversary reunion as schedules clash


Sugababes have scrapped plans for their 20th anniversary reunion.

Original members of the girlband Mutya Buena, Keisha Buchanan and Siobhan Donaghy were all set on launching a killer comeback last year.

But the raging pandemic has put a damper on plans, with each of their schedules clashing during an already stressful time.

The girls were forced to watch their anniversary pass them by during lockdown.

What’s more, Keisha’s move overseas to Canada made their planned get-together even more difficult to arrange.

The star is shifting gears into acting as she’s pursuing a career on the silver screen.

Meanwhile Mutya has been working on her solo EP.

The girls were meant to meet a the studio last year, however Siobhan was hesitant of the pandemic due to her young son, The Sun reported.

Speaking to fans at the weekend, Keisha revealed: “We had so many plans for last year.

“2020 was our anniversary year, we built it up to do so many things but it didn’t happen, so we have to restructure.

“We just have to be motivated to do it and passionate about it and once we are actually in the studio it flows really easily for us.”

She went on: “But it’s about getting us all on the same page on the same date and the pandemic makes it really tricky.

“It just has to be organic and be on the same page as far as our schedules are concerned.”

The star went on to address her acting career, revealing she’s even managed to secure a role already.

“I’ve been taking acting classes. I did land a role but the virus has put a pause on everything there as well,” she added.

The Mirror has contacted Sugababes’ reps for comment.

The trio first formed Sugababes in 1998, and went on to storm the charts with 18 top ten singles and five top ten albums.

Fans of the group were left heartbroken when Siobhán, who was aged just 17 and suffering from depression, left the group in 2001.

She was replaced by former Atomic Kitten member Heidi Range.

At the time, Mutya and Keisha were just 16 years old.

Mutya was the next Sugababe to leave the group in 2005, following the birth of her daughter Tahlia. She was replaced by Amelle Berrabah, with Keisha staying on as the last original Sugababe.

However, she also quit in 2009 after falling out with Heidi and Amelle, and was replaced by Jade Ewen.

In 2011, the original line up reunited under the band name ‘Mutya Keisha Siobhán’, known as MKS, and released their first single Flatline in 2013.

In 2018, Keisha hinted that the trio had regained the rights to the ‘Sugababes’ name after claiming she was not an ‘ex-Sugababe’.
