The Big Reunion 2014 video: Watch sneak peek of opening episode!

Here's a first look at the opening episode of The Big Reunion 2014.

Series two of the show will once again feature exclusive and explosive accounts from former pop heroes, with revelations about drugs, fisticuffs, rows, eating disorders, shattered dreams and how the music industry can leave even apparently successful stars penniless.

Six bands will appear in this year's run, with each being given just two weeks of intense rehearsals before they step back onto the stage to perform once again in front of thousands of fans.

The first episode features R&B pioneers Damage - Jade Jones, Andrez Harriott, Rahsaan J Bromfield, Noel Simpson - and Simon Cowell’s answer to the Spice Girls, Girl Thing - Jodi Albert, Anika Bostelaar, Michelle Barber, Linzi Nartin, Nikki Harrington- as they reveal the intense highs and lows of life at the peak of the pop world.

Episode one also offers a taster from new band 5th Story, made up of Adam Rickitt, Dane Bowers, Gareth Gates, Kavana, Kenzie.

Gareth says: "My life changed overnight. Everything I seemed to release went to number one. I just enjoyed everything that was thrown at me.” He continues: “The band all sound very interesting, I know a few of them. Myself and Dane share a mutual friend."

The Big Reunion 2014 starts on February 6 on ITV2.
