Three members of 1990s girl band Eternal have signed up for the new series of 'The Big Reunion', but Louise Redknapp has turned down the show
Eternal are set to join 'The Big Reunion', but without Louise Redknapp.
The 'Angel of Mine' girl group - consisting of sisters Easther and Vernie Bennett and Kelle Bryan - have agreed to appear on the second series of the hit ITV2 show, but their most famous member will not be part of the reunion.
Louise, 38, is married to retired soccer star Jamie Redknapp and has built a successful TV presenting career since giving up her pop star ambitions.
Show bosses are still hopeful Louise may join her former group, however.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Bosses really want Louise to be part of the group for the reunion."
It's reported the new series of 'Big Reunion' will consist of eight episodes and will spawn a 15-date arena tour in May 2014, followed by a three-episode 'Big Reunion on Tour' spin-off show in September 2014.
Eternal formed in 1992 as a British R&B girl group, but Louise quit the band at the height of their fame in 1995 to launch a solo career.
The group carried on as a trio until Kelle was fired by sisters Easther and Vernie in 1998.
The first series of 'Big Reunion' saw boy band 5ive reunite without original J Brown.
'Take On Me' band A1 are also expected to be part of the second series of the hit ITV2 reality show.
