She rose to fame as one quarter of English R&B girl group Eternal and it looks like Louise Redknapp could soon be returning to her musical roots.

The 39-year-old star has hinted that the band may follow in the footsteps of fellow 90s acts Damage and 5ive by reuniting.

Discussing her singing career in an interview with the Daily Mail, Redknapp said that she would welcome the opportunity to pick up the microphone again.

"I would love to sing with the girls. Nothing is happening at the moment, but it's something I've always said," she said.

"I was really proud to be part of Eternal. When I look back at [debut album Always & Forever]... it was quadruple platinum in its first year.

"And when I look back on that, I was so proud to be part of something that was so credible and so real.

She added: "The last time I sang with the girls, they made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up because, live, they're incredible."

Eternal – which was made up of sisters Easther and Vernie Bennett, Kéllé Bryan and Redknapp –formed in 1992. Redknapp left 1995 to pursue a solo career. The group, whose hits include Angel of Mine, Stay and Just a Step from Heaven, sold 10 million records worldwide before going their separate ways in 2000.

Although the rest of the group briefly reunited for an appearance on ITV2's The Big Reunion, Redknapp was notably absent. The mother-of-two said she snubbed the show because she is not keen on reality TV.

"I'd love to sing with the girls, but I didn't want to do a TV show; it just wasn't where I was at in my life and my career," she explained.

"It's great the girls did it, and I know they would have smashed up the show, but for me, I couldn't see myself doing the whole behind-the scenes thing. But it was good for them."
