The original line-up of the group consisted of friends Keisha Buchanan, Siobhan Donaghy and Buena. Buena and Buchanan were friends from school and met Donaghy at a party in 1998. Since scoring a record deal, the band has gone on to become one of the most successful UK-based female groups in British history - second only to the Spice Girls in terms of record sales. They have had four platinum selling albums, six number one singles, a BRIT-Award as well as a platinum-selling greatest hits album. However, in late 2005, Buena announced that she was leaving the group because of "personal reasons".
