Blue "p***ed off" the other bands on 'The Big Reunion'.
The Honeyz singers Celena Cherry and Mariama Goodman have revealed the 'All Rise' boy band got off on the wrong foot with their fellow cast members - including 5ive, B*Witched, 911, Liberty X and Atomic Kitten - when they joined the ITV2 reality show midway through the series after all the other bands had overcome many obstacles to reunite.
Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' premiere in London's Leicester Square on Monday (18.03.13), Mariama said: "They walked in like they were the s**t. They are the s**t, so fair enough, but they walked in like, 'Yo, yo, we're here. It's Blue. We're here.' "
Celena added: "They did walk in like, 'Yeah, here we are!' But that's Blue for you. They have that kind of attitude. It p***ed us all off. But at the end of the day, we're all just happy to be in the situation. We just have to get on with it."
The 'End of the Line' singers - also consisting of Heavenli Abdi - felt the 'One Love' band - made up of Antony Costa, Duncan James, Lee Ryan and Simon Webbe - had already enjoyed their moment in the spotlight when they reunited for the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest and it wasn't fair for them to join the show having already spent three years working together again.
Celena explained: "I was really angry about it, quite honestly. I felt like Blue had already come out and they'd done their stuff. All of us hadn't done anything in over 10 years. We were completely back, new to it after 10 years."
Mariama added: "They're polished already because they've been working together for three years. We were working really hard to get back to where we were, but they kind of walked in, in that position. Don't get me wrong, I love the boys - they're lovely."
Other stars who walked the red carpet at the 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' premiere include film stars Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Adrianne Palicki and Ray Stevenson, as well as fellow 'Big Reunion' stars 5ive and Lindsay Armaou from B*Witched.
