The sudden death of Paul Cattermole, an original member of S Club 7, has left his fans and former band members in mourning. On April 7, the band announced via social media that they were “truly devastated by the passing of our brother Paul.” The statement went on to express gratitude for the time they had with him and requested privacy for his family and the band during this difficult time.
Cattermole’s death was confirmed after his body was found in his home in Dorset on April 6. Weeks prior, S Club 7 had announced a reunion tour, which left fans wondering if Cattermole’s untimely death would impact the tour. In May, the Dorset Coroner’s Office revealed that Cattermole died of natural causes and that no inquest would be conducted. It’s believed he died of an illness or heart attack, rather than an accident or foul play.
S Club, as the band rebranded themselves since Cattermole’s death, announced that they would continue with their upcoming tour, however, former member Hannah Spearritt will not be joining them. Spearritt was in a relationship with Cattermole for five years and described him as her first true love. The band posted an emotional tribute video to Cattermole on May 15, where they expressed their deep sadness at his passing and acknowledged he would be impossible to replace. According to Bradley, “He lives on inside each and every one of us.”
The loss of the beloved S Club 7 member, Paul Cattermole, has left a void in both the band and fans’ hearts. Although the band has chosen to honor Cattermole’s memory by continuing their upcoming tour, it is unlikely to be the same without him. Fans can only hope that the band will continue to cherish Cattermole’s memory and that his loved ones find the strength they need to weather this sad time.
