Gordon in the morning: Blue it again

How goes the Blue comeback? Given their role on ITV2's Big Reunion, and their swaggering refusal to play more than handful of the related gigs on account of being too famous, things must be sweet for them, right?

Apparently not:

BOYBAND Blue have gone bust — in the middle of a massive comeback tour.

Band members Antony Costa, Duncan James, Lee Ryan and Simon Webbe have called in administrators for their company Blueworld Ltd.
It's hard to believe an act who were 11th in Eurovision just two years ago could be struggling in this way, but Gordon has something close to an on-the-record admittance:
A band spokeswoman said: “Blue have been open about their recent financial struggles and are restructuring their business model.

“A new tour starts in October and we have already had to add new dates.”
"Restructuring their business model" I think means "hoping that they might find loose change on the floor at the end of the gigs".

It just goes to prove, once again, you can go bust underestimating the intelligence of the public.
