The worst-kept secret in pop is out. Kym Marsh has quit Hear'Say.
Is she right to have called it a day, or should she have stuck it out?
Is it the end for the band, or will they be better without her?

She's made her million and now she's gone. She used the music industry to gain money. Shame on her!

I think that it was her decision if she wanted to leave, she obviously does not like it there.

I think that Myleene should have been the one to leave because she was too full of herself and
she was the one who started the row. I think that Kym will have a better career now anyway and hope that one of the finalists on Pop Idol join if they want to.

I think that it was right for Kym to leave the band if she was unhappy. I think she will do well either going solo or making her own band.

I'm not surprised that Kym had left, if it's because of Jack Ryder or her kids she shouldn't of put in for popstars and should of let another wannabe in. But I'm glad the band are still going - come on Hear'Say! You do it!

It would have been perfect if all 5 had

With the right song and marketing, I feel Kym could make it as a solo artist. The UK is currently lacking a prominent female artist and Kym could fill that gap. I think she's the most 'real' out of the Hear'Say five and people saw that from the programme. People warmed to her. Good luck, Kym.

I agree with Charlotte from Stoke-on-Trent I do not think it was fair on the rest of the Popstars because somebody could have had that job who really wanted it, it seems like Kym has had her five minutes of fame and quit when she was not really concerned about the group.

I think that losing Kym will be a sad time for Hear'say fans but she obviously was in da band for all da wrong reasons But da band have said that they will stay 2gether which is fab news so lets see every1 supporting Hear'say as a 4sum !!! Hear'say 4ever

I think it is really bad news, and that the band may go downhill, just like the spice girls did when Geri left.
Marc, 13, Plymouth
As long as she's happy with what she's doing I'm happy and I'm sure the band will survive!
Nick, 15, Cornwall
Kym has left and it's her own choice and as long as she's happy and her children are happy I don't care what she does. To be honest I don't think it'll be long before Jack Ryder leaves EastEnders too and they move out of the spot light.
Kirstie, 15, Wetherby
I thought Hear'say were really big and now Kym has
spoilt it for everyone else in the band. I hope the
band get a great number 1 now and that'll show
Rebecca, 13, Helensburgh
I think it is ridiculous that Kym has left the band, because Kym is the lead singer of the band and without Kym's strong and powerful voice the band will get nowhere.
Ellen, 13, Gloucestershire
I think it's a real shocker!!! To me she 1 of the main parts of the band Hearsay!! It's really a disappointment to me and most of my family. When I saw it on the web I immediately told went to tell my family!!! I never knew it would come down to this!!
Lauren, 10, Ipswich
I think Kym was the best member of Hear'say. I think she was the only one who didn't let fame go to her head to much and remained faithful to her family, mainly her kids. After all its up to her, and not fair for the public to judge.
Steph, 13, Harlow
Its better that she left if that's what she wanted. If I was going out with Jack Ryder I'd do whatever he wanted....
Sammy, 15, Cambridge
I think it is stupid that Kym has left the band just as they were getting successful. She went through the trouble of Popstars and won, but somebody else could have taken her place.
Charlotte, 14, Stoke-on-Trent
I am disappointed that Kym has left, as she was the best singer of the group and the strongest. I don¿t think the group will manage with out her.
Laura, 13, Wirral
I think its stupid Kym left, but she has a good voice to go solo.
Hannah, 8, Moreleigh
I think Kym was wrong to split up with Hear'say because she was a good singer, and just because they had a fall out doesn't mean Kym had to split up from the band.
Hannah, 10, Clitheroe
I think Kym was the best in the band and I don't think she should leave!!!!!!!!!!
Georgie, 12, Oldham
I myself like Hear'Say and I think it it is stupid for Kym to leave the band at such an early time. They have only just gotten into this pop thing!!!!!
Kelly, 12, Chelmsford
I can't believe Kym has left. They're my fave group and I'm just totally gutted now.
Marie, 14, Warwickshire
I think it is good that Kym has left because she was full of herself. The band will be better off without her.
