'We're feeling Whole Again': Atomic Kitten reunite for a girlie catch-up

Mwah! Jenny Frost kisses Natasha Hamilton goodbye as Liz McClarnon looks on outside the Mulberry Bush pub on London's Southbank

It's been eight years since they parted ways, but the members of Atomic Kitten are still as good friends as they have ever been.
Jenny Frost, Natasha Hamilton and Liz McClarnon were spotted enjoying a girlie catch-up at the Mulberry Bush pub on London's Southbank yesterday.
But noticeably absent was original member Kerry Katona, who quit the band just before they hit the big time.

Frost tweeted: 'Just been for a bevvi with Liz and Natasha - was beyond lovely, missed you girls. Love you both x.'
Their meeting will certainly fuel speculation of a possible reunion following a string of other groups, including Steps, who have reunited in recent months.

Mother-of-three Hamilton, 29, is now married to businessman Riad Erraji, father of her youngest child Alfie, one, and recently played Ms Johnstone in the West End production of Blood Brothers.
McClarnon, 30, is now a successful TV presenter hosting shows such as Hotter Than My Daughter and appearing on The Wright Stuff.
Meanwhile, Frost, 33, is also a TV presenter, recently co-hosted OK! TV on Channel 5, and married scuba diving instructor Vicente 'Vinnie' Juan Spiteri in Ibiza last summer.

She also has a four-year-old son Caspar from her previous relationship with DJ Dominic Thrupp.
Originally formed in Liverpool, Atomic Kitten - comprising of McClarnon, Hamilton and Katona - released their first single Right Now in December 1999.
Over the next year, they released four more singles, the highest reaching No.6 in the UK charts.

The group were on the verge of being dropped by their record label when they released Whole Again.
Around the same time, Katona decided to quit the group after falling pregnant with then-boyfriend Brian McFadden's baby.
So after former Precious singer Frost was brought in, they recorded a new version of Whole Again, which ended up hitting the No.1 for four weeks.
After a string of hits, including two further No.1 singles, they went 'on hiatus' in April 2004 - when Hamilton was pregnant with her second child.

Despite brief reunions in 2005 and 2006, the group haven't been back together full-time for nearly eight years.
Last month, Katona hinted at a possible Atomic Kitten reunion after bumping into McClarnon and Hamilton at a Christmas party.
She said: 'I've seen Liz McClarnon a few times but I've not seen Natasha Hamilton for years – I texted them both the next day and we're all going to meet up for some dinner, because we never fell out, we just went in different directions.
'You never know, if Steps can reunite then maybe Atomic Kitten can too!'
