Bouncing back! Keisha Buchanan wears a patterned playsuit for MKS TV appearance as sales of new single Flatline... flatline
The trio were making an appearance on BBC Breakfast in Manchester just days after new track Flatline failed to break into the UK Top 40 – a potential death knell in the fickle world of pop.
Despite the setback, all three girls – reformed and redefined as MKS – admitted in a post on their official Twitter account that they had risen at the crack of dawn in order to prepare for their promotional slot on the show.

Feeling playful: Keisha Buchanan wears a stylish patterned playsuit for an appearance on BBC Breakfast in Manchester on Wednesday morning
‘Morning tweets! Been up since 5am getting ready for BBC Breakfast :-) Tune in ! Xx,’ they tweeted shortly before taking their seats on the sofa alongside hosts Bill Turnbull and Susanna Reid.
Their efforts had clearly paid off – with Keisha, 28, leading the way in a stylish patterned playsuit, black leather jacket and red peep-toe heels that revealed a distinctive, ice-blue shade of polish on her nails.
Flame-haired Siobhan, 29, also stood out in a stylishly mismatched outfit comprised of patterned jacket and floral print leggings stitched in red, black and lilac hues.

The look was completed by a pair of distinctive blue heels, while her make-up – reduced to discreet, natural shades – kept the attention firmly fixed on her clothes.
While her two band-mates went for loud prints and playsuits, Mutya, 28, chose a comparatively conventional pair of skinny jeans and dark blue pumps, while a burgundy polka-dot shirt gave her look an added wash of colour.
The three girls – founding members of girl-group Sugababes – reunited in 2011 to record a new album under the name Mutya Keisha Siobhan.

Having enlisted the help of former All Saint Shaznay Lewis, Emeli Sande and talented singer-songwriter Devonte Hynes, much was expected from the band – whose last release together came in 2001.
Hynes – who records under the pseudonym Blood Orange – had previously helped reinvigorate the otherwise flagging career of Solange Knowles, who’s critically acclaimed True EP he co-wrote and produced.
Despite that success, MKS debut Flatline – which he had a hand in writing – limped to number 50 on the UK chart following a week of disappointing sales.
The band has insisted they will persevere with plans to release an album in 2014, with Keisha claiming they still have high expectations.
‘We are taking this seriously. We’d love to break America and do a world tour,’ she told The Daily Star. ‘It’s a new day. We want to concentrate on the future and reclaim what we lost. We are very much back as a group for good.’
