Eternal look set to reunite and appear in the second series of 'The Big Reunion' with Louise Redknapp said to be in line to pocket around £500,000 to perform with the girl band again
Eternal are set to star in a new series of 'The Big Reunion'.
The 'I Wanna Be The Only One' hitmakers - Louise Redknapp, Kéllé Bryan and sisters Easther and Vernie Bennett - are said be "really keen" to reunite on the second series of the ITV2 show, and brunette beauty Louise is reportedly in line to pocket around £500,000 to perform with the group again.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Eternal are really keen to reform. They had some huge hits -- everyone knows 'Oh Baby I'. The girls are all friends and love the idea of giving the band one last outing."
The girl band formed in 1992 but Louise - who is married to former England footballer Jamie Redknapp - quit the group in 1995 to pursue a solo career, which spurned hits such as 'Naked' and 'One Kiss From Heaven'.
Following the 38-year-old star's departure, the trio continued until 1998 until Easther and Vernie split with Kelle and carried on as a duo until 2000.
One current chart-topper who will be delighted about Eternal appearing on 'The Big Reunion' is soul signer Laura Mvula, who recently admitted she would "drop everything" to organise the group's comeback.
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I would wet myself if they went on 'The Big Reunion'. I'm actually welling up just thinking about it. These are the girls who really taught me about music.
"I would be prepared to organise it. I'd drop everything to organise their reunion.
"I was really vexed when I found out they weren't in the first series of 'The Big Reunion'.
"It was one of those strange obsessions that never really ended. I always wanted to be in that band."
