Atomic Kitten was finally Whole Again today as original member Kerry Katona rejoined the girl band for a one-off reunion TV show.

Katona, Liz McClarnon and Natasha Hamilton hugged each other as they prepared for ITV's Big Reunion alongside 5ive and Liberty X.

The new show follows the pop bands as they are put through their paces during two weeks of intense rehearsals, before taking to the stage for a one-off reunion performance.

Hamilton said, "For us it's about coming full circle; going back to where we initially started. With Kerry being in the band, it's reliving our youth but also appreciating what we had, what we've achieved, and showing our families us now".

Katona, who's lived her turbulent personal life in the spotlight since leaving the band in 2001, said of the fame it brought, "Only in the last three years, since I've been clean, I've been able to handle it and I've been able to work with it now".

ITV's Big Reunion, which starts on January 31, will also feature 90s' bands B*Witched, 911 and The Honeyz, as they prepare to perform again.
