Duncan James, one the of the members of boyband Blue, has spoken out about what caused the band to split, blaming poor management and being overworked.
Duncan James, Lee Ryan, Simon Webbe and Antony Costa are the four members of the band who reformed last year after breaking up in 2005, and they spoke more about their split and coming back together to U.K. daytime tv host Alan Titchmarsh,
"I think at the time... we started in 2000 and it literally catapulted us, not just in the U.K., we were all over the world, a big international act selling like 14 million albums - but in order to sell those you've got to really promote hard; you're on a flight every day, in a different country every day... "We just had complete burnout as a group and I think if we were managed properly we would probably still be together but that's when the cracks started to happen and we all ended up going our separate ways."
Blue are representing Britain at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest later this month (May11) - and Costa is pleased the competition coincides with their 10th year as a group. He adds, "We've learned the hard way but it has done us good for us to come back for our 10th year anniversary."
