Prepare to get all nostalgic, because rumour has it early noughties favourite S Club 7 could be on their way back into our lives.
Yep, perhaps the most exciting news for twenty-something millennials this week has to be that the band (consisting of members Rachel Stevens, Jo O’ Meara, Tina Barrett, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh and Hannah Spearritt) is allegedly planning on going on tour to celebrate their 20th anniversary.
A source told the Sunday Mirror that, ‘there is talks in between band members now about doing a reunion arena tour next year. A lot of the bandmates are up for it. It’s still early days but they are talking and fans may be in for a treat in 2020.’
‘It all makes perfect sense for a reunion celebrating 20 years of S Club 7,’ the source added.
This isn’t actually the first time rumours of a reunion have been floated around. Rachel Stevens touched briefly on the idea when appearing on This Morning, when asked about a reunion: ‘You never know. There’s seven of us all in different stages of our lives but it does bubble up every now and then.’
She continued: ‘I can’t believe it’s been 20 years, it’s crazy. We were all over the place. TV shows, albums, touring.’
It has been a whopping 16 years since the band parted ways. They first hit the music scene in 1998, after Simon Fuller, who had previously worked with the Spice Girls, put the band together.
Things started to fall apart in 2002, when Paul decided to leave the band. A year later, the remaining singers decided to split.
S Club are best known for hits including Never Had A Dream Come True, Bring it All Back, Reach For The Stars, and S Club Party, and were peaking in popularity in the years 1999-2001.
Let’s hope we get one last chance to see them tour!
