Early 2000s British pop group S Club 7 member Paul Cattermole passed away only a few weeks after the group revealed plans for a reunion tour. He was 46. “With tremendous regret that we announce the unexpected departure of our dear son and brother, Paul Cattermole,” the band and Cattermole’s family stated on Friday. Cattermole, they claimed, was discovered at his house in Dorset, southwest England, on Thursday and was declared dead later that day.
The Dorset Police verified that there were no suspicious circumstances, despite the fact that the cause of death is yet unknown. Members of S Club 7 declared on social media that they were “We are deeply saddened by the loss of our brother, Paul. No words can adequately express the profound pain and loss we all experience “.
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. (1/2) pic.twitter.com/CFpkjU62aD

S Club 7 was started, like The Monkees, through a TV show about a pop band in which the members portrayed fictionalized versions of themselves. S Club 7 was founded in 1998 by Simon Fuller, the music entrepreneur behind the Spice Girls. A succession of bouncy UK songs by S Club 7 including Don’t Stop Movin’, the bubblegum pop classic Reach, and the ballad Never Had a Dream Come True, reached the top 10 in the US as well.

The band took the stage at a concert at Buckingham Palace in 2002 to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II’s 50 years as monarch. The same year, Cattermole left the band. A 25th-anniversary tour, slated to start in October, was announced by all of S Club 7’s founding members in February.
