During the tour, the group's vehicle was threatened by an apparently armed man at a motorway service area on the M1 motorway in Leicestershire. However, in January 2002, Kym Marsh announced that she was leaving Hear'Say, later revealing she often fought with Klass and Noel Sullivan.

Hear'Say's popularity had been eclipsed by that of Liberty X, a band composed of the five other finalists of Popstars. They were created through the ITV reality TV show Popstars in February 2001, the first UK series of the international Popstars franchise. The song and band were also criticised by several contemporary musical acts at the time, including Stereophonics, David Gray, and Blur. Following the disappointing sales of the single, it was thought that they would be dropped by the label, though no official word came from Polydor.

It was also the third-fastest-selling single in UK chart history at that point, behind " Do They Know It's Christmas?

The song went straight to number one on the UK Singles Chart in March 2001, selling just under 550,000 copies. With the release of their debut album Popstars, Hear'Say became the first act in UK chart history to simultaneously top the UK Singles Chart and UK Albums Chart with their debut releases. The five chosen singers – Danny Foster, Myleene Klass, Kym Marsh, Suzanne Shaw, and Noel Sullivan – formed Hear'Say.

I dont know how people could say hear'say have no talent, after all wasn't it their voices that got them here in the first place? Pure and Simple" debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart after selling 550,000 copies in its first week, which, at the time, made it the fastest-selling debut single of all time in the United Kingdom.

BBC Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles even recorded a parody version of "Pure and Simple" that included the song lyrics from these two songs. During the summer of 2002, the group toured the UK radio roadshows circuit, where they were constantly booed and abused by members of the public, with a performance in Brighton being cut short due to the animosity concerned – evidence of the degree of public animosity that had built up. It took her only 30 minutes to pen this and she discussed her songwriting with the Metro newspaper March 31, 2006: "I quit the industry and eventually got back into it when I was asked to work on Simon Cowell's girl group, Girl Thing. The programme documented Hear'Say recording and promoting their first single with the series ending on the night the single charted in the UK Singles Chart. Despite this, Noel Gallagher took no legal action due to his own self-confessed borrowings from other artists.Pure and Simple" was covered by America's Got Talent winner Bianca Ryan for her self-titled debut album in 2006.
