Hannah Spearritt quits S Club 7 tour following Paul Cattermoles death

S Club 7 star Paul Cattermole dies aged 46

S Club 7 star Hannah Spearritt has pulled out of the upcoming reunion tour in light of Paul Cattermole’s death.

The band confirmed the news today in a joint video featuring the remaining five members of the band posted to Instagram.

In the video, Jon Lee, Tina Barratt, Rachel Stevens, Jo O’Meara and Bradley McIntosh paid tribute to Paul and his memory, before noting Hannah was not moving forward with the reunion tour.

Hannah, who had previously dated Paul, has found the band members death particularly difficult and as a result has decided to step down.

During the course of the clip, the group became visibly emotional as they remembered their friend, with cameras cutting at points to allow them to cry.

They also noted they would be renaming the tour in Paul’s honour, calling the reunion the “Good Times” tour in recognition of one of the songs he was due to perform.

Jon told the cameras: “You’ve probably noticed that there’s only five of us here today, and although Hannah will always be a part of S Club 7, she won’t be joining us on this tour.

“But we wish her all the best for the future. However, the five of us are really excited and geared up to crack on. It’s going to be our tribute to Paul.”
