Hundreds of fans flooded Sainsbury's in Crayford to see 90s pop stars Steps complete a show-stopping world record.

The band, made up of Claire Richards, Lee Latchford-Evans, Faye Tozer, Ian ‘H’ Watkins and Lisa Scottt-Lee, completed their mission to get more than 180,000 people dancing to their hit record Tragedy in 2012.

The quintet were promoting the release of their DVD STEPS: The Ultimate Live Tour.

This year’s sell-out 22 arena tour saw Steps rounding up 179,500 fans to dance with them and last week’s event in Crayford saw them topple over the world record mark.

Claire said: “Supermarkets are filled with guilty pleasures to tempt shoppers, and yesterday we were one of them!

“Fans danced their hearts out, topping off what has been a phenomenal - and now world record breaking - tour.”

Step’s world record advisor Thomasine Gibson was on hand to ensure the band were eligible to enter the Guiness Book of Records.

She said: “It was amazing to see so many shoppers putting the breaks on their shopping trolleys to join in the dancing extravaganza.”
