S Club 7 singer Hannah Spearritt calls lawyers after her sudden exit from the band’s reunion tour
S Club singer Hannah Spearritt has recruited lawyers after her sudden exit from the band’s reunion tour.
The star’s departure, which was confirmed last month after the shocking death of former boyfriend and S Club 7 singer Paul Cattermole, is still shrouded in mystery.
However, it is understood she had signed a contract with music mogul Simon Fuller and his talent company – and relations between the parties have since become “tricky”.
In the weeks following Cattermole’s death, Ms Spearritt, 42, recounted her devastation in an interview with a best-selling newspaper.
A source said: ‘It’s a shame it’s gotten to the point where Hannah has had to hire lawyers.’

The other members of the group – Rachel Stevens, Jo O’Meara, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh and Tina Barrett – decided to rename the group S Club and continue as five musicians. Speaking in a video posted to the pop outfit’s Instagram page, Lee said: “You’ve probably noticed that there are only five of us here today, and while Hannah will always be part of S Club 7, she won’t will not be joining us on this tour.
“We wish him all the best for the future.”
The Mail on Sunday revealed earlier this year that the S Club were to reform to mark their 25th anniversary.
Mr. Fuller, who founded them in the late 1990s, is spearheading the comeback.
They will give 11 dates across the UK and Ireland in October.
