From Atomic Kitten to Destiny's Child: Can you still remember these girl bands?

Long before Fifth Harmony and Little Mix, these leading ladies formed hit-making girl groups that all of us wanted to belong to.

As the years went by, we saw one girl band after the other break up - much like some of our school friendships, right?

From Atomic Kitten to the Destiny's Child – we all had our favourite girl group who made as sing and dance like there is no tomorrow. 

Atomic Kitten

Who can forget singing to The Tide is High and Whole Again at the top of our lungs? 

Liz McClarnon (38), Kerry Katona (39) and Natasha Hamilton (37) went their separate ways in 2004, after six successful years in the music industry.

To date, the English girl group have had three UK No. 1 singles.

Destiny’s Child

It’s been 13 years since the group has ceased to be, but Destiny’s Child remains one of the most successful girl groups of our time.

Their singles 'Bills, Bills, Bills' and 'Say My Name' catapulted them to stardom back in 1999, when the group comprised Beyoncé Knowles-Carter (38), Kelly Rowland (38), LaTavia Roberson (37) and LeToya Luckett (38).

LaTavia and LeToya left that same year, due to Beyoncé’s father, Matthew Knowles (67), allegedly favouring Beyoncé and Kelly.

Michelle Williams (39) and Farrah Franklin (38) joined in 2000. However, Farrah’s stay wasn’t long and the group remained Beyoncé, Kelly and Michelle until 2006, when each ventured off on their own.

The group has sold more than sixty million records worldwide to date.

Pussycat Dolls

'Stickwithu' made them a sensation. However, the group did not last very long. 

A former member claims the band was nothing more than a glorified prostitution ring where they were forced to sleep with men and take drugs. But Kaya Jones, the former Doll who made the shocking claims, is standing alone, because the other Pussycat Dolls members have flat-out denied her claims, saying they can’t support the allegations.

Drama aside, Nicole Scherzinger (41), Carmit Bachar (45), Ashley Roberts (38), Jessica Sutta (37), Melody Thornton (35), Kaya Jones (35) and Kimberly Wyatt (37) enjoyed raving success during their seven years as a group.

Their hits Don’t ChaButtons and When I Grow Up topped charts worldwide and the band sold 54 million records to date.

The Spice Girls 

The Spice Girls are an English pop girl group formed in 1994. The group comprised Melanie Brown ("Scary Spice"), Melanie Chrisholm ("Baby Spice"), Geri Halliwell ("Ginger Spice"), and Victoria Beckham ("Posh Spice"). They released their debut single 'Wannabe' in 1996, which hit number one in 37 countries and established their global success. 

Their debut album Spice sold more than 31 million copies worldwide, becoming the best-selling album by a female group in history. Their follow-up album, Spiceworld sold over 20 million copies worldwide. The Spice Girls have sold 85 million records worldwide, making them the best-selling female group off all time, one of the best-selling pop groups of all time,and the biggest British pop success since The Beatles.
