The other day I was watching morning TV with my sister when the presenters started discussing the news of a possible S Club 7 reunion. My sister rolled her eyes and paid no attention whereas I nearly spat out my tea and started to wonder who would come to their concert with me?
Rumours have been circulating that the group will be reuniting thanks to a tweet from Hannah Spearritt where she posted a picture of the group back in the day and tagged each member with the message “See y’all tomorrow S’s!” Each member then retweeted the picture as if to confirm their attendance to the rest of the world.
To most people this story wouldn’t even garner any interest but to someone like me who was eight years old when S Club 7 arrived on the scene, it’s a bit of a big deal. In 1999, S Club 7 released ‘Bring It All Back’ as their debut single and enjoyed four years of success which included awards, albums, number ones and a less than impressive film (which I actually still have on DVD) called ‘Seeing Double’. The seven eventually split in 2003 following Paul Cattermole’s departure and even though Paul, Jo O’Meara and Bradley McIntosh came together to play at clubs and universities across the UK and Ireland it just wasn’t the same. That’s why the thought of all seven back together again is pretty exciting.
In a time where reunions are the way to go, it makes sense. We’ve seen Take That, Boyzone and The Spice Girls come back so why not S Club 7? After all, there are some unfortunate young people out there who don’t know what an S Club Party is like. After all, “There ain’t no party like an S Club party!”
Take a trip down memory lane with the video for ‘Bring It All Back’ below and let us know if you’re excited to see the whole S Club 7 back together again.
