S Club 7’s Hannah Spearritt and children forced out of home before Christmas
S Club 7’s Hannah Spearritt says she and her family had to move into an office over Christmas and New Year, after being forced of their home by a landlord.
The well-known 90s pop star said she had lived in four temporary homes in the last six months, adding “it was stressful, but you deal with it”.
In an interview with The Sun, Spearritt said public perception of her and fellow bandmates as “millionaires” was “just not true”.
Speaking about her time spent in between permanent living spaces, she said: “Our landlord needed the money and the property sold so fast. We ended up with under two days to leave.
“What screwed us is we didn’t have time to find another place. We had somewhere over Christmas but ran out of time before we could move in. It was just a couple of weeks.
“We were allowed to stay in our friend’s office. We just used it as our living room.
“It was extra space. It was stressful but you deal with it, don’t you? Especially with the kids.”
She added: “People think we must all be millionaires but sadly it’s just not true. It was what it was and we enjoyed ourselves at the time.”
Spearritt also told The Sun she had come down with an illness that had left her bedbound, while her and her partner’s new cafe venture had also stalled.
S Club 7 were formed in 1998 and consisted of Spearritt, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O’Meara, Jon Lee, Paul Cattermole, Rachel Stevens and Tina Barrett.
Their hits included Don’t Stop Movin’, Bring It All Back, and Never Had A Dream Come True.
Spearritt is the only original group member not to sign up for S Club’s reunion gigs, including shows at London’s O2 Arena, this autumn.
She told The Sun that there was still a chance she would join her bandmates for the comeback shows but that it was dependent on her health.
