All hail the Bedingfield family – true noughties royalty – as both Natasha and Daniel Bedingfield are making a comeback in 2024.
We didn’t think life could get much better when Natasha Bedingfield waltzed back into the charts with Unwritten, 19 years since it was first released. But alas, we were wrong.
Enter Daniel Bedingfield, Natasha’s older brother and fellow noughties icon.
That’s right, it’s the moment we’ve waited decades for: Daniel Bedingfield has just announced his Gotta Get Thru This 20th anniversary tour.
Daniel, 44, will be touring the UK in spring 2024, belting out his three number one singles; Gotta Get Thru This, 2002’s If You’re Not The One and 2003’s Never Gonna Leave Your Side as well as other nostalgic bangers.
Announcing the news to Instagram followers on Tuesday, he wrote: ‘I’m so excited to announce a run of UK shows this April to celebrate over 20 years of ‘Gotta Get Thru This’… Register now for pre-sale access via the link in my bio!’

The mini-tour will see Daniel hitting up three UK cities – London, Birmingham and Manchester – throughout Apri.
A special guest will be joining Daniel for his three shows, which will be his first since 2005.
Born in New Zealand, but South London-raised, Daniel released his debut LP in 2022, which included James Dean (I Wanna Know) and I Can’t Read You.
Written in his Brixton bedroom, Gotta Get Thru this and the accompanying album made Daniel a household name.
Incase you were born a few years too late to appreciate Daniel’s quite frankly expertly crafted pop anthems, he is a BRIT award winner and maker of some of the biggest ear bugs of the century so far.
But after signing a record deal with music giants Polydor, Daniel’s second album failed to ignite the same response.
Around this time, Daniel was involved in a car crash which almost killed him.
He and his friend had to be cut our of the SUV by firefighters, and Daniel later said he felt grateful to have survived.
Despite his touring and new music hiatus, Daniel has not faded into the background in reality. He’s still kinda’ a big deal.
Having moved to Los Angeles and travelled the world in the past few years, Daniel became a judge on The X Factor New Zealand, and has been performing with man of the moment, Fred Again.

This announcement comes after his little sister Natasha stormed the charts when belter Unwritten was included in new romantic comedy Anyone But You, starring Sydney Sweeney and Gen Powell, giving new life to those iconic lyrics.
Overall, Unwritten received 1.8 million streams across the UK last week.
Although many may have discovered Unwritten on TikToks in recent days, it was already a singalong staple for a generation of MTV The Hills fans, as it remains the reality show’s theme song after many years.
This also follows Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s party classic Murder On The Dancefloor climbing the charts to number two after it was played in the film everyone’s talking about, Saltburn.
But it’s not just noughties icons who are benefitting from renewed interest in their tracks; Kate Bush reportedly made around $2.3million between May 27 and June 23 2022 after her song Running Up That Hill was used in Netflix’s teen drama Stranger Things.
Clearly, there’s more than one way to make a comeback…
