The band said in a statement on Friday, “We are truly devastated by the passing of our brother Paul. There are no words to describe the deep sadness and loss we all feel. We were so lucky to have had him in our lives and are thankful for the amazing memories we have. He will be so deeply missed by each and every one of us. We ask that you respect the privacy of his family and of the band at this time.”

Former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller formed S Club 7 in 1998, and the group just announced a reunion tour to celebrate their 25th anniversary in the UK.

On Wednesday, the Daily Mail released photos of him smiling and laughing as he strolled around outside.

In 1998, Cattermole tried out for Simon Fuller‘s produced band S Club 7. They first attempted to attract a younger demographic in 1999 by appearing on the kids’ program Miami 7.

Their first song, Bring It All Back, had the upbeat positivity that would become a trademark of their successes and launched an unprecedented string of hits: each of the band’s first eleven tracks charted in the top five in the United Kingdom. Another one of their top 10 hits in the US was the 2000’s Never Had a Dream Come True.

Disband Of S Club 7

Cattermole left S Club 7 in 2002 to join the mediocre metal band Skua because the group’s upbeat pop didn’t suit his preferences. The next year, S Club 7 disbanded.

Cattermole, Jo O’Meara, and Bradley McIntosh reformed as S Club 3 in 2008, and despite not releasing any new music, they toured the UK extensively. In 2015, they reassembled for an arena tour that Cattermole subsequently called “difficult: not everyone in the band sees eye to eye.”


This year, they announced another tour in February, set to go off in October. The band remarked of their reunion, “It feels amazing to announce that we’re reuniting and performing together again. Music and friendship have always been at the core of everything that we’ve ever done.”

Cattermole’s Difficult Phases

After S Club 7‘s breakthrough, Cattermole was honest about the struggles he encountered. As he said in 2018,  “I paid £36,000 to HMRC but the lawyers’ fees were about 40-something.”

Before the 2015 reunion, he had been declared bankrupt and used the money from the tour to pay off his obligations. “I didn’t let anyone down on not paying my share. We would be playing in arenas to 20,000 people just after I’d had conversations on the phone like: ‘We need £10,000 right now!’ Then I’d have to go out and do Reach for the Stars.”

In order to make ends meet after being wounded in a touring production of The Rocky Horror Show in 2015, he decided to sell off S Club 7’s Brit Award for best British newcomer from 2000.

Cattermole said, “The amount of messages has absolutely overwhelmed me… I have really enjoyed the process,” after the item sold for £66,100 on eBay. 

He had spent the last several years doing a number of jobs in Dorset, one of which was as the manager of a community radio station. Tarot card readings and “psychic, clairvoyant, and spirit coach” services were among the other things he advertised.

Cattermole dated Hannah Spearritt of the band S Club 7 from 2001 to 2006; their on-screen romance had been featured on the program Hollywood 7

Among those paying respects was TV host Lorraine Kelly, who said, “This is so sad. Lovely man and he was so looking forward to the S Club 7 reunion. Interviewed them all many times and struck by how gentle and shy he was.”
