Rachel Talks S Club Reunion

032413-sclub

After ten years, there still ain’t no party quite like an S Club party, And the group still agrees. Former S Clubber Rachel Stevens spoke with Daily Star Sunday about a possible S Club reunion.

‘We met up not long ago and we talked about it and we still are talking about it, We are all in the same head space, talking about how special it was and we do all want to celebrate what we had. So it’s definitely a possibility.’

The group consisting of Hannah Spearritt, Tina Barrett, Jo O’Meara, Jon Lee, Paul Cattermole, Bradley McIntosh and our very own Rachel Stevens split in June of 2003. Three of the member (Bradley, Paul & Jo) continue to tour as S Club 3, but have released no further material.

Rachel is the only member to achieve solo success in the music world having released two albums including the critically acclaimed “Come And Get It”.

Rachel on “Saturday Kitchen”

We’re the first website to feature the video with special thanks to our dear friend Lorna!! Screen captures will come later this week!

“What I See In The Mirror”

When I first look in the mirror, I see a little nose. When I was young, everyone would tease me – they used to grab it and call it a little button. I don’t think it’s grown much since. Now, my daughter has exactly the same nose and I do the same thing to her.

These days I don’t have time to scrutinise my looks – I’ve got my daughter shouting for me and so my routine is very quick: moisturise, then a little bit of base, lip gloss and mascara. That’s it.

Now that I’m 34, I see the little lines and everything changing, but I’m trying to embrace it. It’s a good thing. I’ve always been passionate about fashion. I picked it up from my mum, who loved her clothes and dressing up; she always looked really glamorous. I can see it starting over in my two-year-old daughter. It’s quite scary to see how quickly she’s taken to it: copying me doing my make-up and trying on my heels. It’s funny to watch.

Being in S Club meant I spent most of my teenage years in public, which did shape how I saw myself. I’m in a business where it’s all about looks and, as a mother, I want to teach my daughter not to get too distracted by what’s on the surface. We all love glamour and dressing up, but I’ll be telling her that’s not what makes you different or special. It’s about feeling comfortable in your own skin – that’s what I hope to pass on to my daughter.

Rachel Reveals Her Latest Wateraid Project

031613

Rachel has teamed up with Belu Water to help aid her involvement with Wateraid, money from the bottle go towards the charity that helps bring clean, running water to undeveloped area’s. Rachel will go on a small radio promo tour on the 22nd of March, Hopefully we can get some station’s and times so we can all catch them!!

Former S Club 7 singer and WaterAid ambassador Rachel Stevens, has joined forces with ethical bottled water company Belu to support the clean water charity.

From the 22nd March, conscientious customers can bag a limited edition pack of Belu Water featuring an image of Rachel on her recent WaterAid project visit to Ethiopia.

The packs will be sold exclusively in Sainsbury’s to help fundraise for the charity as all profits from the sale of Belu Water are donated to WaterAid projects that provide clean water and sanitation to some of the world’s poorest communities.

The wrap image shows Rachel with school children she met in Ethiopia, holding a message of thanks for those people who donated to WaterAid and therefore made it possible for the charity to install a clean water supply at their school and in their villages .

They told Rachel how they previously had no choice but to drink dirty water which regularly made them ill, and in some cases, had even led to the death of family members in the past – but now, thanks to the generosity of WaterAid supporters, their health has improved, they no longer have to look after sick family members and they can attend school regularly like other children their age.

Rachel said: “I was heartbroken to learn that, until recently, the children I met had been missing out on school because they didn’t have something as simple and vital as a supply of clean water. Instead, their time was spent looking after sick family members or younger siblings and walking miles to collect water every day – water they knew could also make them ill, but which they had no choice but to drink. This prevented them from attending classes, despite knowing that education is key to changing their future. Their lack of choice and the large responsibility they had at such a young age was really upsetting to me, particularly as a Mum myself. There, and in other poor communities around the world, clean water can be the difference between children getting an education or not, having a carefree childhood and making their dreams of a better future become a reality.

Belu donate all their profits to WaterAid so by buying a pack with your weekly shop, you are buying someone else a drink of safe, clean water too.

Many people don’t have a choice about what they drink, but we do. We also have a choice of which bottled water we buy so I hope that the new wraps help Belu to stand out so that people choose water that helps give other people a chance. World Water Day is the perfect time to start making that difference.”

The limited edition packs will be available in-store from World Water Day on the 22nd March until September priced at £3.35 for six 1.5 litre bottles and £1.99 for six 500ml bottles.
