'The Big Reunion' Star Kenzie Injured In 'Serious Car Accident', 5th Story Singer 'Recovering In Hospital'

The Big Reunion’ star Kenzie is in hospital after being involved in a serious car accident.

The former Blazin’ Squad singer, who is now in boyband 5th Story alongside Gareth Gates and Dane Bowers, was involved in a car accident on Saturday night after driving home from a DJ appearance in Epping.

While he recovers from the accident he’ll be unavailable for any planned appearances in the near future, according to a statement posted to his Twitter page which read: “Kenzie was involved in a serious car accident in the early hours of this morning, he’s recovering in hospital but will miss up & coming gigs.”

Kenzie - real name James Mackenzie - is currently scheduled to appear on ‘The Big Reunion’ UK tour as part of 5th Story later on this year, along with other boybands to participate in the ITV2 reality show including Blue, Five and 911.

As part of the second series of the show, producers put 5th Story together from solo acts Kenzie, Dane Bowers, Gareth Gates, Kavana and Adam Rickitt.

Meanwhile Five, who were originally one member down and decided to tour as a four-piece, are now down to three members after Abz Love revealed he wouldn’t be able to tour the UK with the rest of the band in October, citing “personal reasons” as the explanation for his absence.
