S Club 7 Members Net Worth and Where they are now
Back in the late 90s and early 00s, the S Club 7 were a prominent group. They had a chart-topping album and four #1 singles. Jo O’Meara, Hannah Spearritt, Paul Cattermole, Tina Barrett, Jon Lee, Rachel Stevens and Bradley McIntosh had many fans. For over five years, S Club 7 was at the top, with over 10 million albums sold worldwide.
Great hits such as “Never Had A Dream Come True, “Have You Ever,” and “Don’t Stop Movin’” were top bangers. They even helped spawn a teenage band, S Club Juniors. Formed by Simon Fuller, former Spice Girls manager, S Club 7 members went on to star in their own TV series. They played fictionalized versions of themselves. The TV series had over 90 million viewers in over 100 countries.
Despite their chart-topping singles and albums plus over 10 million album sales, the former band members did not earn much.
In an interview with the Telegraph, Hannah Spearritt admitted that each S Club 7 member earned £150,000 a year. She said, “I’ve been so lucky. I earned about £600,000 over four years as an S Club 7 member.”
At the time, Hannah was just 18 years old when S Club 7 became an instant hit. She continued, “I used the money to buy my first house with Paul Cattermole [a former bandmate and ex-boyfriend]. The house had three bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, lounge, and toilet downstairs. We (Hannah and Paul) paid £375,000 but then sold the house for £475,000 after three years.”
Hannah currently lives in Richmond, and she still insists that buying the house back then was her best financial decision. In fact, she attributes her financial decision to her dad’s guidance. In 2008, Hannah bought a Richmond house for £665,000. It has three floors and a terrace. The house is now worth £1.1 million after she converted the attic.
The singer turned actress made another smart decision back when she was 21. She set up a pension and also receives royalties regularly. She said, “You might get 57p to a couple of thousands. It really depends on DVD sales. I cannot rely on it, but when it comes, it’s a bonus.”
Currently, her net worth is £1,016million. When the band folded, Hannah appeared in Agent Cody Bank 2 and one of the Chucky movies. She also starred in ITV’s dinosaur series, Primeval. She met Andrew Potts – Lee and dated for five years. Despite getting engaged to co-star Andrew, things didn’t work out. She also appeared in Casualty as Mercedes Christie and EastEnders as Kandice, Karen Taylor’s little sister.
Paul Cattermole found stardom in the 90s with S Club 7 band. As one-seventh of the famous band, he became a band member in 1999 after Simon Muller’s 19 Entertainment spotted him and asked to audition. Formerly a National Youth Music Theatre member, he studied a theatre and acting course at the Mountview Drama School.
While at National Youth Centre, Paul Cattermole met Hannah Spearrit and they started dating in 2001, a year before leaving the band. The duo kept their romance a secret for six months. They split in 2005 then got back together in 2015 after S Club 7’s 2014 reunion. However, two months later, they split again.
In 2002, Paul Cattermole quit S Club 7 because he wanted to go back to his rock roots. After leaving the band, Paul Cattermole found it challenging to make money from his solo projects and the band. A source told The Sun “Both Paul and Jo have found it especially tough financially after the band split up. As band members, they did not make a great deal of money, and their solo projects did not turn out profitable.”
In 2018, Paul put his Brit Award for Best British Breakthrough Act Up for auction on eBay. The award closed at £66,100, but the potential buyer failed to pay him. This forced him to put the award up for sale on eBay again. The singer was sad about the failed deal and told his fans, “the guy was a total time waster. He just wanted to wreck my sale.”
In an appearance on Loose Women, Paul confessed that he owed £30,000 in taxes and more in legal fees. As such, his share from the S Club 7 Reunion tour went to clear his debts. Paul’s net worth as of 2021 is approximately £726,013 – £2.17 Million.
By 2015, Paul was bankrupt and contacted Strictly Come Dancing producers for a spot on the show. He appeared on Channel 4’s First Dates Hotels in 2019, which thrilled his fans. Today, Paul is still involved in music and uploads new songs to his Soundcloud page.
Rachel Stevens was just 19 years old when she became a member of the S Club 7 band. Immediately, fans branded her the “hot one.” She also became a magazine favourite and sold 16 million records before the S Club 7 band split in 2003.
Back then, the London born star was famous for her music career and her romance with Jeremy Edwards, a Holby City actor. Their relationship moved fast, and on Valentine 2002, Jeremy popped the question after 18 months of dating. At the time, they were having dinner at London’s swish hotel, The Dorchester.
Rachel fancied Jeremy Edwards immediately she saw him as Kurt Benson in Hollyoaks. When Jeremy popped the question, she said yes. The then 23-year-old star gushed, “I really did not have a clue that Jeremy was going to propose…We are both so happy.”
Due to her demanding schedule with S Club 7, there was little time to plan the wedding. Things went south in Jeremy’s life after the tragic death of Laura Sadler, his Holby co-star.
Laura plunged 40ft to her death from a balcony. She was watching the sunrise at her boyfriend’s apartment in Holland Park, London. The Holby star sustained massive head injuries and died five days later in the hospital. This left Jeremy bereft.
He told the BBC, “Everybody in the Holby cast is completely devastated and is asking the same question, Why her?… She was just the loveliest little thing.” Jeremy turned to drinking, which put a strain on their relationship with Rachel.
He told Heat, “It was a tough time for me. After the death of Laura, I got really messed up. I was drinking a lot and got depressed… Sadly, Rachel got caught up in my mess.” In 2004, Rachel and Jeremy parted ways. Two years later, Rachel disappeared from the spotlight.
She resurfaced in 2008 to compete in Strictly Come Dancing and married Alex Bourne the following year in a lavish wedding. The couple has two daughters and lives in a detached North London home. Her net worth is £2.17 Million.

Following the separation of the band, the single got cancelled. Jo signed with Simon Fuller, S Club 7’s former manager alongside Rachel Stevens, but she took a hiatus from music to recover from a back condition.

Jo participated in “Just The Two Of Us” and partnered with Chris Fountain. The pair finished third in the competition.
Hailed as S Club’s vocal powerhouse, she appeared on 2007 Celebrity Big Brother. But was accused of ganging up on Shilpa Shetty, a fellow housemate.
