Gareth Gates found last night's episode of 'The Big Reunion', which featured his new group 5th Story, "hard to watch"

Gareth Gates found last night's episode of 'The Big Reunion' "hard to watch".

The former 'Pop Idol' runner-up has formed new super-group 5th Story with Another Level's Dane Bowers, Adam Rickitt, Kavana and Blazin' Squad's Kenzie, and he admits it was difficult reliving his pop star past, including his brief relationship with Katie Price at the age of 17.

He wrote on Twitter last night (20.02.14): "Watching the episode with the @WeAre5thStory lads.... Our hearts are in our mouths! (sic)"

At the end of the episode, he added: "Wow that was hard to watch (sic)"

Former boy band star Dane Bowers opened up about his former group Another Level on the show and says he is still close with his fellow 'Freak Me' hitmakers, who couldn't commit to reforming for 'The Big Reunion'.

Dane tweeted: "I do miss Another Level...but @WeAre5thStory is something I'm LOVING too!! We are seriously gonna have a good chance... (sic)"

And responding to his band mates' own dramatic stories - including Gareth's fling with Katie and Kavana's past rivalry with Adam - Dane wrote: "Well you definitely can't call @weare5thstory boring that's for sure!! (sic)"

The 34-year-old star admitted to being "emotional" after watching the episode, which will lead to the group's first performance together during 'The Big Reunion' concert at London's Hammersmith Apollo this evening (21.02.14).

He wrote: "Thanks everyone for the nice tweets about @WeAre5thStory . Been an emotional one already but looking forward to Hammersmith tomorrow now!! (sic)"
