I’ve had these sent to me via e-mail…
Steps have today announced that they will not continue as a group.
Claire, Faye, H, Lee and Lisa have said:
“After five incredible years, we have all decided that it is time to move on to new challenges. We have always said that when the time came we would leave as good friends and go out while we’re on top, and although we are all very sad, that’s what we have done.
We are all looking forward to announcing our next plans – but for now we just want to send our heartfelt thanks and love to all the people who have supported us – you truly are the best fans in the world!”
Also Lisa’s Mum posted this on the Official Site:
It is with great sadness I’m having to post this topic, confirming that today, STEPS have officially announced their break-up.
Lisa had been told that an official announcement was to be posted on the official site today – BEFORE any announcement was given to the media.
Having contacted her because of all the messages and e-mails I’ve received today, I’m posting this to tell you that she is EXTREMELY distressed that this has not happened. She’d wanted all the Fans to be told first, in full recognition of their continued support and love throughout the last 5 years.
I will post a personal letter from Lisa to you all within the next 30 minutes.
