An afternoon with Steps, despite two decades having passed since their debut hit single, is like herding excited children.

They gossip, they giggle, they run off in different directions if you take your eye off them for 30 seconds. They make rude jokes and they can’t work out how to send tweets.

But it’s all fine – no really, where HAS H GONE NOW – because Steps are back, back, back! And when we ask them if they’re back not just to celebrate 20 years in ‘the biz’, but also to save pop, they collectively shout a resounding “YES!” And as it’s the first thing we’ve been able to get them to collectively focus on, we’ll bang on while we’ve got their attention.

“Save the WORLD,” Claire corrects us.

“That’s the best question we’ve heard all day,” Lisa smiles. “We’ve all said we think it’s a really great time, but it’s a tough world out there and I think that it’s nice that we can bring a bit of positivity and light relief…”

Claire cuts in. “And we all know that it’s always sunny in Steps’ world, remember.”

Are things sunny in Steps’ world at the moment?

“They actually really are,” Lisa replies. “There was a shade of blue for some time…”

Claire laughs. “It was piddling down with rain for a while.”

“Pissing it down,” Faye offers and they all laugh.

About Gay Times

It’s been 25 years since the National Theatre first staged Angels in America - the most important play to come out of the 20th century. In our world-exclusive interview and shoot with the cast of Angels in America, debuting at the National Theatre this July, we discuss the political and cultural parallels between then and now, the evergreen relevance of Angels in America and the importance of coming out and living with pride. Elsewhere, TOWIE’s Charlie King, who is also our resident fitness guru, gets you festival ready with a focus on upper body workouts, and James Haskell, former Gay Times cover star and international rugby icon, takes us through the new fitness craze, F45. Also, gay sex in Karachi, Pakistan's largest city; Steps take us through their 'gay-tastic' new album; homophobia in football; men who make money from men they barely know; Lucie Jones sticks her hand in our sweetie jar; Romy and Michele turns 20; Megan Mullaly on Karen Walker; and Todrick Hall on Broadway. The issue is packed - as usual - with opinion, travel, style and fitness.
