Just two months after the group announced a huge comeback tour, S Club 7 member Paul Cattermole died unexpectedly in early April at the age of 46. The cause of the singer's death has still not been confirmed, but police have said that it was not suspicious. 

Following Cattermole’s passing, the band released a statement which read: ‘We are truly devastated by the passing of our brother Paul. There are no words to describe the deep sadness and loss we all feel. We were so lucky to have had him in our lives and are thankful for the amazing memories we have. 

‘He will be so deeply missed by each and every one of us. We ask that you respect the privacy of his family and of the band at this time.’

The group found fame at the turn of the Millennium, having been put together by music mogul Simon Fuller (who has worked with acts such as Spice Girls, Kelly Clarkson and Amy Winehouse). The last time S Club – known for hits ‘S Club Party’, ‘Never Had a Dream Come True’ and ‘Reach’ – performed together was for their ‘Bring It All Back 2015’ tour. The tour was set to mark 25 years since the band first formed.

Of course, S Club fans have been wondering what the fate of the tour will be following the news of Cattermole’s death. Here’s everything we know.  

Is the S Club 7 reunion tour still going ahead? 

Five members of the band took to Instagram to confirm that the tour is still going ahead. However, they announced that Hannah Spearritt, who was in a relationship with Cattermole while they were in the band, will no longer be joining them at the shows. 

In the video, John Lee said: ‘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/’

Rachel Stevens added: ‘He’s always going to be with us. He was such a big part of this tour, so involved in everything that we are planning.

‘And we are just going to keep his memory alive and share it with all of you and it’s going to make it even more special.’
