After rising to fame within pop group S Club 7, Hannah Spearitt recently cameoed in East Enders as Karen Taylor's well-off sister, Kandice.
While we didn't learn much about her character's love life, the singer has opened up about hers over the year, and recently appeared on This Morning with her new boyfriend, Adam Thomas.
A source close to the group said: “Family was originally pitched for all seven of them to sing on their Bring It All Back reunion tour in 2015, when they toyed with the idea of releasing new tunes.
“But it was Paul who decided he didn’t want to continue, and the other members didn’t want to release music without the whole band." The trio are set to join 5ive for Ultimate Pop Reunion tour in May 2018.
I lost balance, I was always freezing cold and my brain fog meant I couldn’t remember anything." Eventually, in 2016 she made the decision to have them removed and almost immediately started to feel better.
In 2016, the fitness trainer was accused of assaulting Hannah and sending her threatening messages.
"Then I started sleeping more and more – eventually 22 hours a day.
I couldn’t move from bed because my muscles were aching.
They released a new single in December, titled Family. Rachel Stevens, Hannah Spearritt, Jon Lee and Paul Cattermole have not signalled any desire to reform and play a part in the next S Club 7 chapter.
The trio have now rebranded to be called SC3 in a bid to avoid issues with their ex bandmates.
