Rachel is in the latest issue of “Big Issue” on News Stands now!
Former S Club star and WaterAid ambassador Rachel Stevens on returning to her first love – music. With modeling campaigns to front and fashion designing to get her teeth stuck into to, music has had to take a back seat in Rachel Stevens’ life.
But after an onstage revival recently whetted her appetite, the ex-S Club lovely and LA-Ex singer, 34, insists she is hopeful of returning to her first love. “I was back on stage performing a couple of weeks ago at a big Next staff party and I absolutely loved it,” Rachel told The Big Issue.
“I sang LA Ex live for the first time in years and I was so nervous beforehand. But in the end it was just like riding a bike – you don’t do it for so long but it comes back to you immediately. “Singing and performing is my first love and it has definitely made me want to get back out there again.”
Detailing her strict routine as part of the My Week interview, Rachel reflected on her recent stint in Ethiopia as part of her ambassador role with Water Aid and also insists that she is finally starting to learn the elusive tricks of motherhood. She said: “My time in Ethiopia was overwhelming at first and very emotional but at the same time quite uplifting. We visited two rural projects and one in the slums.
“In the first site, where the water well hadn’t yet been installed, there were hundreds of children in this small area that had to walk miles for access to clean water and who couldn’t go to school because they had to look after sick family members, but all of them were so positive. It put things into perspective for me.” On juggling a hectic work schedule with being a mum, Rachel added: “The first three months of being a mum were crazy. Knowing that you have complete responsibility for this tiny little person is daunting, but it has got easier with time.”

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”.

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.
