Top of the Pops caught up with Liz McClarnon of Atomic Kitten and asked the singer if she felt like they had to work much harder than her reality TV popstar counterparts. “No! I think it’s harder for people who do the reality TV shows because I don’t think they’re given enough credit in the end,” she explained. “They have fame very quickly, I mean we worked for over three years before we had any proper fame. I think they’re put up on pedestals really fast and then they’re dragged back down again even faster. I just think it’s really sad sometimes for them. A lot of people I’ve seen, like Will Young and that, they are incredibly talented. They’re doing good, which I’m pleased about. But you get all kinds of talented people in it and they get put down a lot, and that’s not very nice.”
