Rochelle Humes has revealed she was ’embarrassed’ at having to get a job at Tesco after the money dried up when S Club Juniors split up.
The singer, 34, shot to fame at the age of 12 in the band – made up of Jay Asforis, Daisy Evans, Calvin Goldspink, Stacey McClean, Aaron Renfree, Hannah Richings and Frankie Bridge – which broke up in 2003.
But she told the Grace Beverley podcast this week that when the band broke up, she wondered, “What am I going to do now?”
The mother-of-three said she handed out leaflets in Tesco when she had to find a ‘normal’ job when it seemed her fame was over.
She said, “We all made good money. As if we could buy ourselves expensive things, and we all had nice cars, as if we were helping our parents.

The beauty took to her Instagram Stories on Monday to share the happy news, admitting it was completely “out of the blue” but that she was “so excited.”
Rochelle explained how the couple got an unexpected offer on their home and then found a plot in an area they’ve “always loved.”
Rochelle admitted that she “must be crazy” and said the family will be living in a rental for the next two years, joking that she and Marvin are “definitely a little gypsy at heart.”
The TV personality then gave followers a behind-the-scenes look at packing boxes for her husband and their three children.
She explained what was happening and said: ‘We are moving. Can you believe it? I must be crazy actually. And I move in every sense of the word.

“So first of all we got into a position with the house where we got an offer on our house. Anyway, crazy.
“It happened out of the blue, but we found a plot in a place we’ve always loved.”
She then revealed that she and Marvin were building their own property and looked to Grand Designs for inspiration.
Rochelle continued, “So we’re going to build a house. I’ve never built a house.
“I’m so excited, but we’re now on a lease for 18 months to two years. I think two more years probably…plus, while we hopefully build the house forever.
‘We like to move. It has become our favorite pastime. I’m not sure why, how, or what, but we’re definitely a bit gypsy at heart. I like to embark on a new adventure.”
Rochelle said the new home won’t be far from their former property, explaining: ‘We’re in the same kind of area, so we’re not far off.
