  • Paul Cattermole, known for his time in S Club 7, has died at the age of 46.
  • The cause of death has not been disclosed, and police have confirmed that there were no suspicious circumstances.
  • S Club 7 paid tribute to Cattermole, describing him as their “brother” and expressing their deep sadness at his passing.

Paul Cattermole, the singer known for his time in pop group S Club 7, has passed away at the age of 46. According to a statement from his family, he was found at his home in Dorset on Thursday and was pronounced dead later that day. The cause of death has not been disclosed, but police confirmed that there were no suspicious circumstances.

The band, who had four UK No 1 singles including “Don’t Stop Movin'” and “Bring It All Back,” released a statement paying tribute to Cattermole: “We are truly devastated by the passing of our brother Paul. There are no words to describe the deep sadness and loss we all feel. We were so lucky to have had him in our lives and are thankful for the amazing memories we have. He will be so deeply missed by each and every one of us. We ask that you respect the privacy of his family and of the band at this time.”

Cattermole, who was born in Hertfordshire, auditioned for S Club 7 in 1998, a group manufactured by Simon Fuller. They first gained a young audience through the children’s TV show “Miami 7” in 1999. Their debut single “Bring It All Back” was followed by a remarkable run of success, with all 11 of their singles reaching the UK Top 5. Their 2000 song “Never Had a Dream Come True” also became a hit in the US, reaching No 10.

However, Cattermole’s musical tastes didn’t quite align with S Club 7’s pop style, and he left the group in 2002 to form the metal band Skua, which was ultimately unsuccessful. S Club 7 then split the following year.

In 2008, Cattermole reunited with Jo O’Meara and Bradley McIntosh to form S Club 3. While they didn’t release new music, they performed live across the UK. The full band reunited in 2015 for an arena tour, but Cattermole described it as “difficult: not everyone in the band sees eye to eye.” They announced a new tour to begin in October of this year.
