Scooch are a British pop band comprising Caroline Barnes, David Ducasse, Natalie Powers and Russ Spencer. They formed in 1999 after attending auditions for an "all-singing, all-dancing pop group". Signed to EMI-Parlophone, they created their image with manager Steve Crosby; the man behind Steps, and worked closely with well-established songwriters and producers Mike Stock and Matt Aitken. Scooch won a contest on the BBC Saturday Morning show Live & Kicking in 1999. They competed against a boyband to have their single released.
