The first series which featured Atomic KittenFive911B*WitchedBlueHoneyz and Liberty X, proved to be an unexpected hit for ITV2, becoming the channel's highest rated premiere in five years, and going on to achieve over 1 million viewers every week, making it one of the channel's most popular shows.

Another mini-series, entitled The Big Reunion: On Tour, aired from 5–19 September 2013.
