'The band's the happiest it's ever been', Cheryl Baker on why Bucks Fizz turned down £1 million

Now Those Days Are Gone: Bucks Fizz won't be reforming in a new TV show

Monday, July 18, 2016

Three ex-members of pop legends Bucks Fizz have turned down £1m to patch things up with former band-mate Bobby G in a TV reunion.

Singer Cheryl Baker, who helped the band to Eurovision success in 1981 with the smash hit Making Your Mind Up, joined Penny Smith to explain why there will be no coming back following a legal battle over the name Bucks Fizz, which is owned by Bobby G's wife Heidi Manton.

Baker now tours with original band members Mike Nolan and Jay Ashton as 'Cheryl, Mike and Jay formerly of Bucks Fizz with Bobby McVay'.

"We said 'no we're not going to do it'," she said. "The band's the happiest it's ever been, [new member] Bobby McVay is a dream."
