Boybandologists Amy and Zoe visit the north west of England for the story of the world’s only bagpipe playing boyband: BBMak. Hear how Christian, Mark and Ste flipped the tables on the boyband export market and took America by storm at the turn of the Millennium. Where do our heroic continent-hopping trio make their debut on the Ultimate Boyband Chart?

Zoe and Amy discuss whether all boyband reunions are good news, and why they're shipping a four-piece *NSYNC.
