THE music merry-go-round just keeps on spinning for Great Yarmouth girl band EFX.
But the fab four need a new member to hop on and help their success spiral.
While it was curtains for the Spice Girls when they lost Gerri Halliwell fans of EFX need not lose heart for the new girl will join at a time when they are being encouraged to higher things with top people spotting their potential.
Hopes are high that the girls can follow in the celebrity slipstream of other home-grown talents include Hannah Spearritt and Myleene Klass.
Having in the last year trodden the same boards as Atomic Kitten, sung a Bee Gees song for Robin Gibb and made it to the X-factor boot camp stage the departure of the Kalli, 17, is a setback their manager is determined to overcome.
Richard Copland, manager and father of Katrice, 17, said the new girl would not be slotting into an identikit girl-band but would have the energy and enthusiasm to contribute.

Having already dealt with a previous line-up change when another girl moved away to bring the line up to four, Mr Copland said he was confident of finding a big enough talent to fill the place and move the band even further forward.
Although Kalli would be honouring a tide of summer bookings and gigs the new addition would have to be prepared to give up a lot of time for rehearsals and concerts.
After more than seven years of being together Mr Copland said that what had started as a hobby had turned into something that had a fighting chance of getting to the top of the pop tree.
“We are looking for someone of around 15 years or older who can sing and dance. It is a lot of hard work to get to the standard that is required but I am quite confident that there are a lot of people out there who will want to give it a go.
“It was originally just a hobby but after our quite incredible last year when we were told we were as good as anything else in the country at the moment we are really going to go for it with some original material and record a proper record and DVD. If we just get one person to apply and she is good enough then I will be happy.
“We are open to anyone, not someone who is a “yes” person, someone who will contribute.”
The new member will join Katrice, 17, Charlotte, also 17 and Remi, 14.
