We’ve had to wait five weeks for some real drama but last night on Big Reunion 2, it finally arrived.
In this episode, Girl Thing reunited, 5th Story went into the studio and Damage almost met up. Here’s are some thoughts:
You wouldn’t mess with Girl Thing. Aside from Jodie Albert, the members of the group are all a little bit terrifying. They met at Jodie’s (very tidy) Ireland home, with her husband ‘Kian from Westlife’ serving fizz and chocolates. Good hosting, but it was never going to be a good idea to add alcohol to the situation. Things got a bit heated between Linzi and Nikki and then between Linzi and Michelle. If anger was involved, it mostly came from Linzi, who has made it clear from the start that Big Reunion isn’t just a bit of fun for her. I wouldn’t like to cross her, but I’m still just about Team Linzi.

Girl Thing’s Linzi dated Brian McFadden. My theory from earlier in the series that Linzi is this year’s Kerry Katona has been proven! They only dated for a bit though, before Girl Thing’s record company stuck their oar in and split them up.
Linzi and Anika are actual friends. Something good did come out of Girl Thing! Anika helped Linzi when she was at the lowest point in her life and they’ve been besties ever since. Aww!
Tea solves everything. After a disastrous reunion, Girl Thing met up for a brew to try again and they all got on. Which proves tea really is a miracle elixir.
Adam Rickitt is the weakest [vocal] link. Ok, so he can’t really sing. If we’re honest, we knew that - and so does he. One of the best bits of the episode was watching Rickett’s reaction to hearing himself sing. He cringed even more than us.
Dane Bowers and Gareth Gates are the strongest singers. Dane is also a contender for my ‘best beard of 2014’ award.
Kavana and Gareth don’t get on. ’Kav’, as his band mates insist on calling him, wasn’t on top form during his studio sessions and seems to have lost a lot of his confidence. Gareth, who’s increasingly cocky every time he appears on camera, wasn’t very supportive, saying “I don’t hate Kavana, we’re just very different. He’s very loud, and I can’t speak.” I’ll be watching this one closely in future weeks.

Eternal’s Kéllé Bryan is the agent of Fatboy from Eastenders. And she makes him listen to her talking about their reunion.
Damage are taking their sweet time reuniting. They decided to meet in groups first - Jade and Andrez in one group, Rahsaan and Noel in the other… and Coreé on his bill. I don’t think their eventual reunion is going to be at all pretty, but it should make good telly.
