S Club 7: Multi-media pop stars
S Club 7
From TV stars to pop sensations
S Club 7 modelled themselves as squeaky clean pop stars when they rose to global fame only two years ago.

They hit the big time when their hit television show Miami 7 was sold to more than 100 countries.

Playing themselves, the group were flown to America to seek fame and fortune.

Broke and down on their luck they end up working in a hotel where slapstick comedy follows them around.

Chirpy

When S Club 7 released their first single they gave a fresh approach to the pop ensemble by having two extra members than other popular acts like Boyzone, Westlife and Steps.

The ever-chirpy seven are: Bradley McIntosh, 18, Paul Cattermole, 24, Jon Lee, 19, Rachel Stevens, 21, Tina Barratt, 24, Hannah Spearitt, 19, and Jo O'Meara, 24.

The first series Miami 7 went out in April 1999, followed by two feature length episodes.

Two months later the first single Bring It All Back was released and went to number one in the charts.

Two more singles followed, S Club Party and Two in a Million/You're My Number One, which charted at number two.

Caring

Their biggest single to date has been the uplifting summer tune Reach, which was one of the audition songs featured on the Popstars TV show.

Two albums have followed, S Club and Seven.

The overnight success of the band saw them pick up a best newcomer award at the Brits 2000.

Their sixth single showed the caring side of the band after they announced profits from Never Had a Dream Come True would go to Children in Need.

A second series of the TV show, entitled LA7, saw the group relocate to Los Angeles to continue their quest for stardom.

Their new single Don't Stop Movin' is due for release on 23 April.

A third album is in the pipeline and tour is planned for the summer.
