S Club 7: Where Are They Now?
The huge pop sensation known as S Club 7 quickly rose to fame after forming together as a band in 1998. Their huge success lasted for five years, and together the band released a string of hits like “S Club Party,” “Don’t Stop Movin’,” “Have You Ever,” and “Never Had a Dream Come True.” The singers even had their own television series called S Club 7 in Miami. But it quickly came to an end when one band member abruptly left in 2002, eventually causing the entire band to split in 2003. Fans were devastated, but we were given a glimpse of hope when three of the members joined back together in 2008 to perform a mini-tour. Rumors swirled of a full blown revival and eventually in 2014 it was announced that the original 7 members would return for an entire reunion tour in 2015 with stops all over the U.K. The tour has since ended and fans are left wondering once again where all the former band members have split off to. This list takes a look at what each member has been up to since their first split and what they are up to now:
7. Rachel Stevens
As soon as the band announced their split, Rachel went off on her own to start a solo career and she’s done quite well for herself. In 2003, she released the album “Funky Dory” and then another one in 2005 called “Come and Get It.” We haven’t heard any music from her since then. Instead she’s gone on to appear in films like Suzie Gold, Spider-Plant Man, and Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo. Rachel, 37, returned to television to compete in the sixth series of Strictly Come Dancing and finished in second place. She also co-hosted Britain’s Got Talent in 2010 and was a mentor on the New Zealand version of the X Factor. Rachel was recently named FHM’s Sexiest Woman Of All Time. Today, she’s happily married to Alex Bourne with two children and sits as one of the coaches on The Voice of Ireland.
6. Hannah Spearritt
Before even joining S Club 7, Hannah had been in the spotlight on shows like Blue Peter and The National Lottery Show. Since the band broke up she returned to acting appearing in the film Agent Cody Banks: Destination London and Seed of Chucky. In 2005, after successfully shaking her S Club image she appeared in BBC’s sitcom Blessed and took on a role in an unsuccessful West End musical Snow! which was canceled after just three weeks. She got her big break in 2007 when she joined the cast of the television series Primeval for five seasons and even received a lot of praise from critics. Today, Hannah, 34, continues to focus on acting with a role in the film Utopia and a new television series called Causality. Hannah was engaged to her Primeval co-star Andrew-Lee Potts, but broke off her engagement and has since gotten back together with her former band mate and boyfriend, Paul.
