The 'Buttons' are all back - minus Melody Thornton


Words: Steve Brown

The Pussycat Dolls are officially back and are heading on a UK tour next year.

Earlier this week, it was reported the ‘Button’s girl group would be reforming to perform on the X Factor: Celebrity final this weekend marking the first time they have performed together for a decade.

But now, the group – including Nicole Scherzinger, Ashley Roberts, Kimberly Wyatt, Jessica Sutta and Carmit Bachar - are back for a reunion tour next year and from April they will be taking their tour across UK venues.

Speaking to Good Morning Britain today (November 28), Carmit Bachar – who quit the band back in 2008 – said: “I think all of us were excited and nervous, not knowing what it would be like but knowing it would only take a moment to sink back in, and it did."

Roberts added to the BBC in a different interview: “I think ultimately there’s some unfinished business with the Pussycat Dolls.”

All by Melody Thornton is returning on the reunion tour and Roberts said the door is always open for her to rejoin.

“Mel’s got a lot of projects going on in life,” she told the BBC.

“She was included in all of this, she’s our sister… but it just wasn’t the right timing for her right now. We wish her well.”
