This means we'll be recording heaps of new material, we're about to film another TV series and there's the movie too, and that's just this year!
We're very happy and can't wait to get started, plus, as Paul's got so much to look forward to, we're really excited for him and everything he's hoping to achieve in the future."
And Paul said:
"I've had some of the best times of my life over the past 4 years with S Club and I'd like to thank all my fans for that and also the other 6 guys.
It will be a sad day for all of us when I leave and I'll really miss not being with them every day - they are my best mates!"
I've reached a point in my life where I'd like to experiment in different types of music as a solo artist.
I love S Club to bits and I know they'll continue to be hugely successful. I'll be watching them every step of the way and wish them all the best."
