Biography

London, United Kingdom (2002 – present)

Their early life in Romania consisted of studying gymnastics and ballet where they toured with the Hungarian National Opera. Moving to the London, United Kingdom with their mother in 2002, the girls shot to fame as the Cheeky Girls after auditions on the British TV shows, Popstars: The Rivals and Channel Four’s Model Behaviour.

Although they failed to pass the auditions for either shows, they received enough publicity to launch pop careers, releasing four singles and a debut album in the UK, and also touring Europe and Asia.

Their music is primarily disco-pop, and is generally thought to be aimed at young children. All their songs are written by their mother, who acts as their manager.

In January 2004, their first single, The Cheeky Song (Touch my Bum) was voted the worst pop record of all time in a Channel Four poll despite spending 5 weeks in the top 5 in the UK singles chart, and peaking at #2 for 4 (non-consecutive) weeks.

They have never performed singing live, and despite very poor reviews from music critics they have had continued success in the UK with a string of top 10 singles.

When their record company Multiply went into liquidation in 2004 the girls turned down several deals from other companies and decided to launch their own label XBN, and have already signed Hollyoaks star Andy Newton-Lee.

In November 2004, they appeared on a celebrity duo version of the Weakest Link, in which they performed extremely well, given their limited English skills, they held the place of Strongest Link in a number of rounds.
