The 'Overload' group former back in 1998 but went through a significant number of line-up changes over the years to the point where the current Sugababes doesn't feature any of the original girl band members.
Sioban quit the group back in 2001 and was followed by Mutya four years later in 2005, before Keisha became the final original member to leave the band in 2009m but says there are no hard feelings between them and the current Sugababes trio.
"I feel like everything has gone full circle and right now I'm exactly where I'm meant to be," Keisha told Popjustice this week. "And I genuinely wish them the best of luck.
"To be honest with you I was very hurt and disappointed and I did feel betrayed by the whole thing," she explained. "But I feel like when you don't forgive people and when you're very bitter it's not really doing anything for you.
Keisha added: "But I'm in a great place, and that's all I care about. Onwards and upwards.
Band member Siobhan, who was the first to quit the group back in 2001, says "everything is a group decision this time around" and promises there won't be any of the same issues that caused their split the first time.
Mutya Keisha Siobhan have confirmed they have been back in the recording studio working on new music and will announce further details of their reunion in the coming weeks.
