In a time where STEPS are being very quiet trying to find reliable news stories is difficult but here are some that I have found about the place.
Channel 4 teletext is reporting that the forthcoming STEPS dolls will be available in time for Christmas, no surprise there then. They will be joined on the market place by dolls from S Club 7 and 5ive, so the Christmas doll sales this year are just in close battle as the UK Singles chart at Christmas also!
Also if you get this months issue of FHM, it has Britney on the front cover, there is a picture of Claire’s sister in there! I was trying to scan it but I’m having problems with my scanner at this moment and was unable to do so. If you have a scanner and want to scan it and send it in for everyone to see then please do so. Otherwise buy the magazine it costs £3.00 and is available from all good high street stores.
This isn’t STEPS related but it has now been confirmed that Scooch have been dropped from their record label, one of the members is pregnant (I’ve forgotten her name) which might have lead to them being dropped due to a breach of contract (that is probably false) they also might have been dropped due to the bad chart position of their 1st album, it debuted at number 41 in the UK charts. I have no idea if they are looking for a new label like other recently dropped band Made In London.
From The Daily Record Steps Star Ian Watkins was seen out and about with a mystery brunette last night, so has H ditched his gorgeous girlfriend Sarah Connoley?! No! Sarah has has had her raven black hair dyed light brown and looks even more stunning than before! The couple who have been dating since October 1999 joined H’s fellow Steps singer Claire and her dancer partner Mark Webb for a night on the town. On lookers said “Love really does have a hold on their hearts!”
