The group, consisting of Lee Latchford-Evans, Claire Richards, Lisa Scott-Lee, Faye Tozer and Ian ‘H’ Watkins, was formed in 1997 and quickly became one of the most popular household names in British pop.
They have released seven studio albums, three compilation albums and 27 singles and are well-known for including the dance steps in their album sleeves.
Steps broke up in 2001 after H and Claire left the band.
By this point they had two number one UK singles, two number one albums and a BRIT Award nomination for ‘best newcomer’. They had also supported Britney Spears on her tour.
In 2011 they reformed for a four-part documentary series on Sky Living titled Steps: Reunion and released a second greatest hits album, before reforming again in 2017.
They have since released two studio albums and will be heading to Sheffield Arena in November as part of their new What the Future Holds tour.
