S Club 7 vocalist Paul Cattermole passed away at the age of 46. The news was confirmed by his family, who released a statement saying he was discovered dead at his house in Dorset on Thursday.
The cause of death :
The cause of death is currently unknown, and police have stated that there were no suspicious circumstances.
Cattermole was set to participate in a reunion with S Club 7, who had four UK number-one singles, including “Don’t Stop Movin'” and “Bring It All Back.”
The band issued a statement acknowledging the loss of their brother Paul and asking for privacy for his family and the band.
Cattermole joined S Club 7
Cattermole joined S Club 7 in 1998, after an audition for the group formed by Simon Fuller. The band made their television debut in 1999 on the children’s show Miami 7, and their first single, “Bring It All Back,” was a hit in the UK.
All 11 of the band’s tracks eventually made it into the Top 5 in the UK. Their song “Never Had a Dream Come True,” released in 2000, was also a hit in the United States.
Cattermole left S Club 7 in 2002 due to his musical interests clashing with the band’s upbeat pop. He went on to establish the metal band Skua, which was not successful.
His Band :
He later rejoined former bandmates Jo O’Meara and Bradley McIntosh in 2008 to form S Club 3, a group that performed live across the UK. The original S Club 7 lineup reunited in 2015 for an arena tour.
Cattermole was open about his struggles after the band’s popularity waned. He was declared bankrupt before the 2015 reunion, and the money he made from the tour went toward paying off his debts.
He also sustained an injury while performing in a touring production of The Rocky Horror Show. He subsequently decided to auction off the Brit award that S Club 7 had received in 2000 for being the best British newcomer.
Recent Life :
In recent years, Cattermole had worked in Dorset as the manager of a community radio station and had advertised his services as a “psychic, clairvoyant, and spiritual coach.”
The news of Cattermole’s passing has saddened fans and industry figures alike. Lorraine Kelly, a TV anchor, paid tribute to Cattermole, calling the news “really heartbreaking.”
