The band called it quits after replacing all the original members. Now the founders are back for another go at the charts

The Sugababes have reunited in the studio, and are teasing a proper comeback.

Original Sugababes singers Mutya Buena, Siobhan Donaghy, and Keisha Buchanan have long mooted a return, having reconnected as Mutya Keisha Siobhan in 2012, when they were unable to use the Sugababes name as they had all been replaced.

They only released one single, Flatline, and it appeared the reunion was dead until 2017 - when they hinted a desire to make new music.

However, they now seem to be ready to stage a comeback as Mutya, 34, sent fans into meltdown by sharing a snap of the three girls hanging out in the studio recently.


The girls posted this new pic on instagram and fans went wild

“Me and my beauties today #studiovibez,” she captioned the image.

The reunion is remarkable considering Siobhan left the group before they had their hit the height of their success. She left in 2001 aged just 17, after one album.

In 2003, she told The Independent: “Really, it’s about how being in the Sugababes made me feel. I learnt a lot - about how awful people can be.”

After she left, and was replaced by Heidi Range, the group had six UK number one hits.

After Siobhan quit, Mutya left in 2005, and the band frequently changed faces, with Heidi Range, Amelle Berrabah and Jade Ewen all joining the line-up at different points in time.


The Sugababes replaced all the original members, which did not work

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Mutya revealed they working on a project and an event to coincide with 20 years since their debut album, One Touch, next year.

Mutya said: “We’re working on new music and have a secret project that should be made public later this year. Plus we are working on something special for our fans that is coming out for our 20th anniversary.

“As well as the music we’ve planned a tour. We need to put it out there for everyone to see and hear us again.

“Everything new we are working on will be classic Sugababes/MKS sounds. I’m excited to get out there.”
