David Ducasse on a Scooch reunion, Michael Rice and where he keeps his Eurovision 2007 cabin crew outfit
Scooch star David Ducasse has revealed that Scooch are planning to reunite for their 20th anniversary.
This year will mark 20 years since the 90s band, made up of Ducasse, Natalie Powers, Caroline Barnes and Russ Spencer, first launched on the pop scene.
And they dont want to let the occasion pass by without doing something for the fans – but David, now a drama school teacher and Slimming World consultant, was keeping schtum on exactly what those plans are.
Weve probably spent more time talking to each other this year than we have in a good while, he told Metro.co.uk, its an exciting time for us.
But whatever theyve got up their sleeves is likely to be a one time thing.
He added: We dont want to step back into Scooch full time, we want to keep the legacy.
The group were best known for hits such as More Than I Needed To Know, The Best Is Yet To Come and For Sure.
And, of course, they represented the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2007 with the song Flying The Flag (For You), and finished in 22nd place.
David held on to his iconic cabin crew outfit from the performance, and joked that it might see the light day for the final on Saturday.
He said: Mine is in my wardrobe, the electric blue one and the pink one. And it still fits.
I think out of the four of us, mine is probably the most pristine. The original one is in my wardrobe with the sparkly diamante tie, and the pink version as well. I might wear it on Saturday night on the sofa.
David has obviously been there and done that when it comes to the Eurovision final, so hes well placed to offer this years UK entry Michael Rice some helpful tips about his big performance.
The singer warned of oversinging during the live show and feels Michael should remember the millions tuning in at home when hes doing his thing on stage.
Youve got to remember that although youre performing in an arena for thousands of people, youve got to remember the TV performance, David said.
Its so easy to oversing. Natalie would tell you she added a couple of extra notes. They were all in tune but she sang things in that final that werent there.
Michael will be fine because hes had so much rehearsal. Hes got a cracking voice, he just needs to just sing the notes rather than add any more which I have seen him do.
Theres a difference between performing on Loose Women and on Eurovision – more men! More gay people!
