The S Club are set to reunite. All seven of the members of the pop group will be for a brand new reality show to rival The Big Reunion. They include Tina Barrett, 36, Paul Cattermole, 36, Rachel Stevens, 35, Jo O’Meara, 34, Hannah Spearritt, 32, Bradley McIntosh, 31, and Jon Lee, 31 had been approached by ITV2 approached the band to discuss a new series.
However though the group of them had requested 19 Entertainment – the production company who put them together – to film their comeback. A source told The Sun:
‘The Big Reunion was such an incredible success the first time round that ITV are currently signing up bands for the second series. S Club were very high on their list but getting them seems to have been scuppered by this latest move.
‘To be fair to 19 Entertainment, they created S Club 7 so there’s no reason why ITV should be making a load of money bringing them back together.’ The band had very popular hits back in nineties such as Don’t Stop Moving and Bring It All Back.
It is thought the show will replicate the Steps Reunion on Sky Living in 2011 and all seven members of S Club are all looking forward to the opportunity. The insider added:
’Approaches have been made and it looks like the S Club boys and girls will all jump at the chance to get involved.

‘There are still a few things to iron out but everyone is very hopeful this will be a goer. While a few of them have done mini reunions over the years, they have never got all seven back together.
‘If the show comes off, it will be similar in format to Steps Reunion and will capture the ups and downs of the band as they meet up again and start performing.
‘It’s a bit of a kick in the teeth for ITV and The Big Reunion but it’s sure to make great television.’
