Obviously keen on continuing his passion for Steps, Rylan revealed he was expecting them to dress the same – in leather and boob tubes – during their tour.  

‘I’ll do the boob tube!,’ H humoured him, before revealing: ‘We will definitely give everyone what they want. There will definitely be a homage to our old videos.’

Claire added: ‘As a fan of music, I always come out disappointed from a concert if an act doesn’t do all your favourite songs. We’re embracing it – we’re choosing which songs we want for tour.’

Faye was also quick to quip in: ‘We’re lucky to have so many hit singles. It’s actually us trying to choose which ones we’re not going to add in. We might do some medleys.’

And Rylan, who had been eagerly honing down his Steps moves all morning, quizzed them over the potential inclusion of their famous dance sequences. 

Lee admitted: ‘Don’t ask me to remember the routines. I’m too old! We worked hard on our routines. We have to keep our fitness up.’

Talking about their shifting priories over the years, Lisa added insight: ‘We have businesses and babies – but we came back because we love it. We feel lucky that fans want us to do it after twenty years!’

The British favourites then went on to take the stage, where they showed they hadn’t let their dance skills deteriorate as they performed  Scared of the Dark – much to the delight of Rylan.
