Complete list of Steps' UK singles

 
Steps in 1997 1997
Steps began life as an advert in entertainment magazine The Stage, looking for singers and dancers to create a new pop band.

Thousands auditioned before the final five were chosen: Faye, Claire, Lisa, H and Lee.

At the time, the charts were dominated by either boy or girl bands (Take That, Boyzone, Spice Girls, All Saints), so a band with both boys and girls was unusual.

Their route to pop stardom wasn't exactly ordinary either.

Their first single, 5-6-7-8, was a line dancing number - normally the kind of thing your mum and dad love boogieing to!

But it went to number one in countries around the world, and was particularly popular in Belgium.

It was a good start to a record-breaking career.
