Steps consider musical based on their music

Cheesy tune fans, hold on to your hats. Steps are "very seriously" in talks for a musical based on their back catalogue.

Claire Richards, Lee Latchford-Evans, Lisa Scott-Lee, Faye Tozer, and Ian 'H' Watkins are hoping to follow in the footsteps of their biggest inspiration, ABBA, and create their own stage show.

H has been speaking to Attitude magazine and told them: “We’ve been talking about it for years – the Steps musical.

“It’s just the perfect pop progression of telling a story through our songs. There are cogs turning.”

Claire added: “We’ve talked about it among ourselves very seriously.”

The throwback hitmakers are celebrating their 25th anniversary next year and suggested they could follow Adele's pattern for LP titles if they released a record in 2022.

Claire said: "I can't believe Adele is 30, it's called '30' her album isn't it?"

H suggested: "If we do an album next year we can call it '25', let's steal that idea."

And Claire replied: "I thought we had already!"

The band released their comeback album, 'Tears on the Dancefloor back in 2017 and have since dropped sister records 'What the Future Holds' and 'What the Future Holds Pt.2'.

So, it looks like a musical and all the trimmings of a Steps bonanza could be on the way sooner than we think. We'll watch this space for you.
