While 911 say they were "nervous" about reforming for 'The Big Reunion', the boy band admit the ITV2 show has been like a "really good counselling session" for them

911 say 'The Big Reunion' has been like a "really good counselling session".

While the Body Shakin' hitmakers - who are made up of Jimmy Constable, Lee Brennan and Simon 'Spike' Dawbarn - initially found it tough talking about their problems following their split, they admit getting the boy band back together for the ITV2 show has been "very therapeutic".

Jimmy told BANG Showbiz: "It was very therapeutic. We all had to individually sit in front of a camera for four hours and talk about the good stuff and the bad stuff in the old days and for me it was quite emotional. It was the first time you've sat down and thought, 'I'm going to tell it how it was.' But four hours was like a counselling session, but yeah it was really good. Great feeling afterwards though."

Spike admits the group - who were also known for hits 'A Little Bit More', 'Private Number' and 'More Than a Woman' - felt "nervous" about talking about their break up, and he was particularly worried the trio would just start slamming each other.

He added: "We were probably most nervous about whether we could still do it again. We knew there was going to be problems at the start but when they chucked us together that's the first time we talked about how we split up because Jimmy weren't happy about it.

"We got drunk, went through our problems and had an argument really. That's probably what we were most nervous about, that we would sit round a table, all call each other t***s and sod off again.

"It had a few nerves also because if it brings attention to my lad in school then he's prone to bullying, so I was worried about that."

'The Big Reunion' - which also documents the comebacks of 5ive, Liberty X, the Honeyz, B*Witched and Atomic Kitten - starts tonight (31.01.13) on ITV2 at 9pm.
