British girl group Atomic Kitten will reportedly reform permanently after wowing fans with a one-off charity gig in Liverpool, England last month (NOV06). Natasha Hamilton, Jenny Frost and LIZ MCCLARNON announced they were "taking a break" in 2004, but they're planning to launch their comeback with a New Year's Eve (31DEC06) performance and plan to start recording new material soon. A friend of the WHOLE AGAIN stars tells British newspaper The People, "They've remained friends over the past few years. They all wanted the chance to do their own thing but now feel the time is right to reform." MCLarnon hinted at a reunion earlier this year (06), saying, "If you're still friends then there's no reason not to."
