5ive Ritchie has 'no recollection' of throwing beer at B*Witched but apologises

5ive has apologised for being ‘moody bad boys’ after B*Witched claimed they were ‘horrible’ to them.

In a story straight out of the 90s, B*Witched star Edele Lynch accused the members of 5ive of being ‘horrible’ to the girl group back in the day – even throwing beer and bottles if the bands were forced into proximity with each other.

The groups were natural rivals back in the day, with the Irish girl group made up of Edele and twin sister Keavy Lynch, along with Sinéad O’Carroll and Lindsay Aramaou.

Meanwhile, 5ive is formed of Ritchie Neville, Scott Robinson and Sean Conlon, and also used to have J Brown and Abz Love on their roster.

Reflecting on the heyday of their peak fame, Edele told Vicky Pattison’s The Secret To podcast that 5ive weren’t B*Witched’s biggest fans, and were ‘really horrible.’

‘We’d be in the dressing room next door and they’d be throwing their beer over, bottles and everything,’ she claimed.

Now Ritchie has responded to the claims, saying that while he doesn’t remember ever throwing beer at the band, they were ‘moody bad boys’ and may have been throwing items at each other – with B*Witched caught in the crossfire.

He told Metro.co.uk: ‘I personally have no recollection of this at all and I know for a fact that I would never have thrown a bottle over a partition.

‘As much as any of us in Five were jumped up little moody bad boys at times I can say that I don’t think any of us would have been that bad that we would randomly throw bottles wantonly for other people to potentially get hurt.’

He added, however, that he does think ‘we would have thrown the same objects at each other. If B*witched were randomly caught in the crossfire of a blaze up between us, then I can only apologise.’

On the same podcast, Edele said 5ive would have some ‘wild stories,’ and despite their less-than-ideal relationship praised the boy band for having some ‘great songs.’

B*Witched split in 2002, the band regrouped in 2013 on ITV2 reality series The Big Reunion and have been together since.

5ive, meanwhile, formed in 1997 and split in 2001 before reforming for a year in 2006.

They, too, regrouped on The Big Reunion in 2013, and have been together since – though minus a few original members.
