Was EastEnders song Something Outa Nothing released as a single?

In 1986, Sharon and Ian were members of a band called The Banned, along with neighbours and friends Kelvin Carpenter (Paul J Medford), Simon Wicks (Nick Berry), Eddie Hunter (Simon Henderson) and Harry Reynolds (Gareth Potter).
They entered a competition for young musicians and both Simon and Harry wanted to write the band’s song so vowed to outdo each other in the hope the rest of their bandmates would pick their tune.
The group collectively decided it was Simon’s song Every Loser Wins should be performed which Harry was not happy about.
But as Harry owned all the instruments and equipment, they were forced to pick his song “Something Outa Nothing” for the contest.

Despite eventually giving in to singing his song, Harry was unhappy and wanted to get his revenge.
So, in a bid to show them up, Harry sabotaged the performance by switching the cartridge in the synthesizer.
This led to the group being booed off the stage and The Banned not winning the competition.
They were all furious though following the failed performance when Harry confessed to what he had done just out of spite.
This leads to the band breaking up but they did have some success out of the show.
