Steps Lee Latchford-Evans teases Im A Celebrity stint to make great TV

Steps star Lee Latchford-Evans has teased a potential upcoming I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! stint – but his bandmates aren't too keen.

Lee burst onto the scenes in the late 1990s as one-fifth of chart mauling band, Steps, alongside Claire Richards, Faye Tozer, Ian 'H' Watkins and Lisa Scott-Lee.

Today, the group have released their seventh studio album, over 20 years since they were catapulted to international fame with their catchy lyrics and easy dance moves.

Over the course of their career, the group have worked with the likes of Sia and Britney Spears but there is one thing Lee is hoping to tick off his CV.

In an exclusive chat with Daily Star, the 46-year-old couldn't contain his excitement at the thought of heading into the I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! camp.

While bandmate Claire said: "I would never, ever do I'm A Celeb in a million years – it's an absolute no go for me, I don't fancy having thousands of cockroaches dumped on my head."

Lee added: "It doesn't bother me," before Faye interjected: "Lee would be great."

"It wouldn't bother me, most of that, I'd give it a go," the dad-of-one said.

The Chester-born singer and personal trainer continued: "I'd just scream like a girl and act all weird in front of the cameras to make great TV.

"Deep down, I don't think it would bother me that much."

Following Lee's revelation, Claire, 44, exclaimed: "I'd love to hear you screaming like a girl," before Faye, 45, joked: "That's usually H!"

"Get me in there and see if you can make me scream like a girl, that's the challenge," said Lee.

Discussing the possibility of her bandmate appearing on the show, Claire went on to say: "See if you can rattle him because he never gets rattled, ever."

Steps' seventh album, What The Future Holds Pt. 2 instantly rocketed to the top of the iTunes chart just hours after its release – but the group admit that they will always be nervous putting out new music.

"I think we always have and we always did, when we record something we're always really happy with it and we're happy with the end product but you just don't know whether your taste is going to be the same as everybody else's," Claire said.

The power vocalist continued: "I think we know now what the fans enjoy and what they want from us but we never expect it to be the success that it always is, which I kind of like because it just means we're always pleasantly surprised."

After their dramatic split in 2011, the group reunited between 2011 and 2012, before eventually coming back permanently in 2017, opening up about their ongoing success, Faye said: "It was a ten-year gap and now we've been together for ten years after that, so that's quite an interesting thing."

She continued: "It's definitely been a better ten years, this side of it because we've had more of a say in things, it's been our business, we've been partners in it rather than being the kids that they employed to do the songs.

"We're always quite humbled by our amazing and loyal fanbase who keep demanding more, I think we'll just keep rolling and try to fulfil that."
