I have official comformation that S Club 7 are reforming next month for Children In Need, the band will perform a medley of their Greatest Hits!! Below is the official press release!
One of the most hotly anticipated reunions of the last decade is finally confirmed as S Club 7 announce that they are to reunite and perform together again for the first time since 2003 on the BBC Children in Need Appeal show on Friday 14th November 2014.
Tina Barrett, Paul Cattermole, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O’Meara, Rachel Stevens, and Hannah Spearritt will perform a medley of their greatest hits live on the show for a UK TV audience of millions.
It will be a fitting return to BBC Children in Need for the S Clubbers; their single ‘Never Had a Dream Come True’ reached No.1 in the UK in 2000 as the official charity single for BBC Children in Need, as well as becoming their first top 10 hit in the States.
A year later S Club 7 released ‘Have You Ever’, their second chart-topping single for BBC Children in Need. It was one of 11 hit singles, four million selling albums, an internationally successful TV show, feature film and many awards won by the band during their five years together.
The group was formed in 1998 and quickly rose to fame by starring in their own television series that sold to over 100 territories around the world. The Brit Award winners numerous hits include Never Had a Dream Come True, Bring It All Back, S Club Party, Don’t Stop Movin’ and Have You Ever.
S Club 7 commented: “We’re massive fans of BBC Children in Need and it was great to be able to support the charity all those years ago. We’re really looking forward to bringing it all back for Pudsey, for BBC Children In Need and for all our fans who have been so great over the years. This is going to be the mega S Club party of all time!”
Additionally, Rachel has taken to her official website to post about the reunion
Hello everyone! There have been a few rumours lately and now, finally, I can set the record straight!
Yes, me and my lovely S Club 7 band mates, Bradley, Hannah, Jo, Jon, Paul and Tina are getting together for the first time since 2003 for an exclusive performance on Children In Need Appeal night on November 14th, 2014.
Rehearsals have started and it’s genuinely great to be back with the guys. It’s very nostalgic and we’re having a lot of fun!
We’ve been working on a medley of our greatest hits to perform on the show, which will be a really special occasion for us to come back together for as we supported Children In Need with 2 charity singles -‘Never Had a Dream Come True’ which went to No1 in 2000 as CIN’s official charity song and was also our first US top 10 hit, and ‘Have You Ever’ which was our second single for the charity.
Recently, I’ve also lent my face to their Barefaced campaign and this year, that image has graced the side of buses across London in a bid to get more of you involved in this year’s fundraising campaigns.
From the bottom of my heart, a huge thank you to all of you who have sent such lovely messages recently and have supported us over the years. I can’t wait for the show and to bring it all back for Pudsey and for all our fans here and around the world.

Rachel recently sat down for an interview (obviously before all this S Club madness), one of the questions asked if either of the girls (Rachel & Una) could name previous winners of the Voice, see what happens below…
Pop princesses Rachel Stevens and Una Foden were painfully earnest when discussing their new roles on RTE entertainment show The Voice of Ireland last week.
“I watch the show every weekend with the kids,” said former S Club 7 star Stevens.
But their appreciation of the series rang a little hollow when one reporter asked if they could name any of the previous Irish winners.
Both girls stared blankly at each other before Stevens ‘fessed up.
“Well no I don’t suppose I could,” she replied.
This could possibly be the worst kept secret ever, members of S Club 7 were photographed outside of 68 Studio, which is a well known dance studio in London.
In the picture you can see Rachel, Paul, Bradley and Jo on a smoke break (You can’t see Rachel actually smoking because she gave it up awhile back when she had Amelie). I don’t think i could be more excited!
Thanks to Saara for the heads up and Dan Jones for the actual picture!!
The Sun is reporting S Club 7 will be reforming next month at the Children in Need telethon. While this is great (rumored) news, keep in mind although an official Twitter has been set up it is not a confirmed reunion. 19 could just be handling any copyrights to the name, or various other reasons. So take this with a grain of salt!
S Club 7 are in talks to reunite as early as next month – at the UK’s ‘Children in Need’ telethon.
The ‘Reach’ hitmakers – made up of Rachel Stevens, Jon Lee, Hannah Spearritt, Jo O’Meara, Tina Barrett, Bradley McIntosh and Paul Cattermole – have entered negotiations about performing together for the first time in 12 years at the televised charity event on November 14.
A source said: “The reunion is definitely on but everyone involved wants a massive launchpad, which is why Children In Need would be perfect.
“It could still all fall through because there are the diaries of seven people to work around, but it’s looking positive.”
Should the pop group agree a deal to play at the event, they are expected to sing a variety of their greatest hits, but there are fears next month might come too early for the band because some may have prior commitments they are unable to alter.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: “Jon is busy with theatre, Hannah is working on TV projects and Rachel is a judge on ‘The Voice’ in Ireland.
“But for the rest of them this is a real second chance to ditch the pub gigs and become stars again.
“The idea is for them to perform a greatest hits medley, including ‘S Club Party’ and ‘Reach’.
“If the reaction is good a tour will be announced.”
It wouldn’t be the first time S Club 7 have appeared on ‘Children in Need’ after they performed their charity single ‘Have You Ever’ on the telethon in 2001, one year after they sang their hit ‘Never Had a Dream Come True’ at the event after it was chosen as the official ‘Children in Need’ single.
This comes after Paul took to Twitter in August to confirm an S Club 7 reunion is “god damn close”.
He wrote: “Big thanks too everyone for your support with the S club Re-union … Sorry guy’s I’m not confirming the S’s Re-union . I’m just saying thanks coz there have been thousands of messages over the last year … But it’s God Damn close, I can almost … Reach … The sword..”
Allow the reunion rumors to continue. The newest promising part of this all is now S Club 7 have a VERIFIED official Twitter account.
The account uses old pictures from Hollywood 7 and Don’t Stop Movin’ as their avatars and header images and currently follows nobody nor has any tweets.
In addition to that the S Club 7 official domain (SClub7.Com) has recently been purchased and updated as of October 14, 2014. However the register information is unavailable. Click Here to see that information (It was registered through a domain service in France).
This all could mean so many things but as i’m sure you’re all thinking along side me, it could mean NOTHING ELSE but a reunion. However there are numerous things you have to consider.
Jo is a full time mommy now.
Paul Recently launched his album with the band he originally left S Club for
Hannah Is busy filming movies
Jon Just starred in on more theater productions.
Bradley has been doing loads of behind the scenes work
and of course Rachel has full time judging duties now (as well as being a mom)

Every week The Saturdays send out a newsletter featuring a short video featuring one of the girls. This week’s video is straight from Ireland and features a very brief chat with Rachel! Watch now!!
You can fast forward the video to the time stamp 1 minute and 55 seconds to see Una chat with Rachel!!
The Saturday’s star Una Foden has taken a stance on early indications there would be rivalry between herself and former S Clubber Rachel!
They’re the new coaches on the Voice of Ireland and they mean to impress. But Una Foden and Rachel Stevens insist there will be no fisty cuffs in the live shows.
“I don’t think we’ll come to blows. I come from The Saturdays where we’re more like sisters and I already feel a bond like that starting to form with Rachel. We’re all about girl power,” Una told The Herald.
However, the same can’t be said about their relationship with fellow coaches Bressie and Kian Egan.
“I’m sandwiched in between the two boys so I’ve got them both in each ear,” Rachel laughed.
“It was like being the new kids at school on the first day but it’s good to be thrown in at the deep end,” she added.
The Saturday’s star Una admitted that competition was fierce between the judges from the beginning.
“I think we both got really into it from really early doors and the first guy who auditioned was brilliant and so it got off to a great start and didn’t really fall from there,” she said.
Una is currently pregnant with her second child but insists it won’t get in the way of the show.
“I’m in a really good stage of pregnancy at the moment, I’ve got lots of energy,” she said. “I’m used to long days and the show is filmed in stints as well. There’s the blind auditions and then there’s nothing again until November and then there’s actually nothing until after the baby is born.
“They get a lot of content in these few days, the blind auditions and the battles and we go away for a few days as well. Plus I’m used to working long hours.”
The talent show is currently filming the blind auditions and will air in January.
Yesterday (judging purly on the outfit) Rachel and the rest of the gang over at The Voice of Ireland posed for the first promo shoot of the season.

Rachel, 36, who lives in London with husband Alex and children Amelie, three, and six-month-old Minnie, tells how she found she had a thyroid condition while pregnant Singer, model and presenter Rachel Stevens shot to fame with pop group S Club 7, selling over 14 million records. Here, Rachel, 36, who lives in London with husband Alex and children Amelie, three, and six-month-old Minnie, tells how she found she had a thyroid condition while pregnant. I was always turning the heating up and tiredness was something I put down to being too busy – so I wasn’t aware I had anything wrong. My underactive thyroid was only picked up during the early stages of being pregnant with Amelie.
The condition can be hereditary and I knew it ran in the family because my mother and grandma suffer from it. But my mum doesn’t take any medication so hers must not be as bad. As a result, I never really thought to get myself tested. It came to light just over four years ago. Once a year I try to attend a well-woman screening to check hormone levels and general health. Thanks to one of these sessions, I discovered I was suffering from a slightly underactive thyroid. Between having the test to check on my thyroid and getting the results from a consultant at London’s The Wellington Hospital, I discovered that I was pregnant. It was strange how everything seemed to work out at around the same time. Read More…
