90s Pop Band Steps Reveal New "Ultimate Collection" Tracklisting
They were a huge pop sensation in the late 90s, emerging with a string of well-loved guilty pleasure classics like '5,6,7,8' and 'Last Thing On My Mind'.
In their prime, Steps ruled the British pop scene selling over 15 million copies of their four albums. The quintet - made up of Lisa Scott-Lee, H, Claire Richards, Faye Tozer and Lee Latchford-Evans - chalked up 14 consecutive UK Top 10 singles between 1998 and 2001 but decided to disband after releasing their first greatest hits album "Gold".
10 years on after trudging along with lacklustre solo music and acting careers, Steps have reunited to launch a brand new best-of package titled "Steps: The Ultimate Collection" - a 20-track compilation of all their singles.

1 - 5,6,7,8

Relive Steps' classic 1998 hit 'Last Thing On My Mind':
The compilation release will coincide with a new four-part, tell-all documentary that will air on the UK's Sky Living channel later this year. The series will feature all five members discussing the real reasons behind the band's split and eventual reconciliation.
"We'll document the in-fighting, jealousy and power struggles - it's not the sugar-coated Steps we all remember," said Sky's Head of Factual Entertainment Mark Sammon.
After Steps split in 2001, two of the band members - H and Claire - formed a pop duo that scored three UK Top 10 singles before they were dropped due to the album's poor sales. Claire competed and came third in this year's ITV series of "Popstar to Operastar".
Lisa Scott-Lee famously launched her own MTV reality show in 2005 ("Totally Scott-Lee") in which she vowed to quit the music industry if her single 'Electric' didn't debut in the UK Top 10. 'Electric' entered the charts at #13, missing the Top 10 by reportedly 500 copies.
Faye Tozer ended up pursuing a career in musical theatre, while Lee Latchford-Evans left the music industry altogether to become a personal trainer and fitness entrepreneur.
