Pop group S Club have made a shock announcement that they are to split up at the end of May.

At their concert at the Docklands Arena in London they told their fans the news.

The group have repeatedly said that rumours about them breaking up were untrue - but now it seems they weren't!

Many people thought the band couldn't go on after bandmember Paul Cattermole left last year.

He's now concentrating on playing in a nu-rock style band.

And Jo has had loads of problems with her back, which have meant she hasn't been able to take part in some of the dance routines.

'We've had a fantastic time'

After the concert on Monday night the band said: "We've had a fantastic four years in S Club. We can't thank each and every one of our fans enough for their constant support and we hope that they will continue to support and understand us."

Jo, Paul, Rachel, Hannah, Bradley, Jon and Tina were picked from nearly 10,000 people hoping to make it into the big time in the music industry by the ex-manager of the Spice Girls, Simon Fuller.

They've had loads of hit songs, like Reach for the Stars, Don't Stop Movin' and a hugely successful TV show too.

And their first film, Seeing Double, is just out in the cinemas now.

The band are to make one more single, called Saying Goodbye on May 26th before splitting for good.

And at the same time as announcing S Club were to split, their mates S Club Juniors told the audience at the concert that they're to be called S Club 8 from now on.
