The pop group’s official S Club 7 Twitter account also published a message. The group tweeted, “We are terribly grieved by the demise of our brother Paul. “No words can adequately express the profound pain and loss we all experience. He was such a blessing in our life, and we are grateful for the wonderful memories we have of him.” The statement continues in a second tweet, stating that Cattermole would “be so terribly missed by each and every one of us,” and once more requests privacy. This unfortunate news was revealed not long after the band announced a reunion tour that was slated to begin this fall, as Variety reported.
Paul Cattermole’s death is a ‘shock’ to those closest to him
When Paul Cattermole joined the British pop group S Club 7, he established himself and became well-known. In the late 1990s, he participated in an audition for the group, which was put together by Simon Fuller, the Spice Girls’ manager. According to the BBC, Cattermole, Tina Barrett, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O’Meara, Hannah Spearritt, and Rachel Stevens were the last members of the band, and he remained with them until 2002. He was the first band member to go, and the band ultimately disbanded in 2003, according to the BBC.
Spearritt, who dated Cattermole from 2001 to 2006 and again for a brief period in 2015, is reportedly “extremely distraught and inconsolable,” according to the Daily Mail. “This came as a huge shock, and she is finding it difficult to comprehend Dad is no longer with us,” the insider stated. According to reports, the couple just made up after a public fight that followed their romance, and they were getting ready to tour with the rest of their original bandmates for 11 dates this fall. The insider claimed that “the band are all in pieces.” They were all anticipating the reunion tour and sharing their incredible recollections.
