Paul Cattermole’s cause of death revealed: S Club 7 singer, 46, died of natural causes just two months after pop band announced reunion tour
S Club 7’s Paul Cattermole died suddenly of natural causes at the age of 46, it was claimed today.
The singer was found dead on Thursday, April 6, just two months after he and the band announced they would be embarking on a reunion tour this fall. It still goes on without him.
His body was discovered in his ground floor flat in Wareham, Dorset, devastating his bandmates and fans.
Cattermole, who made a living as a tarot card reader after falling on hard times after leaving the group in 2002, is said to have been “in good spirits” when he was spotted days earlier in a park close to his home.
