Earlier this year, all seven members of the chart-topping band confirmed they were reuniting for a historic 25th anniversary tour.
Hannah initially declined to join the line-up, citing a lack of childcare, and only agreed to join when music manager Simon Fuller offered to pay for a babysitter to arrive.

Hannah then accepted a five-figure sum to tell her story, which left a bitter taste in the mouths of the remaining band members.
Rachel Stevens, Jo O’Meara, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh and Tina Barrett then decided to rename the band S Club and continue as a five-piece.
