S Club 7 star Hannah Spearritt has said that she and her family were left homeless after being forced out of their home by a landlord with just two days notice.

The singer, who is shot to fame in the late 90s and early 2000s as part of the hit pop group, said public perception of her and fellow bandmates being “millionaires” was “just not true.”

She revealed that she had lived in four temporary homes over the course of the last six months, adding “it was stressful, but you deal with it”.

Speaking about her time spent in between permanent living spaces with her partner Adam Thomas, 42, and their two girls, she told The Sun: “Our landlord needed the money and the property sold so fast. We ended up with under two days to leave. What screwed us is we didn’t have time to find another place.

“We had somewhere over Christmas but ran out of time before we could move in. It was just a couple of weeks. We were allowed to stay in our friend’s office. We just used it as our living room. It was extra space. It was stressful but you deal with it, don’t you? Especially with the kids.”

The singer and actor, who had four UK number ones as part of S Club 7, added: “People think we must all be millionaires but sadly it’s just not true. It was what it was and we enjoyed ourselves at the time.”

S Club 7 were formed in 1998 and consisted of Spearritt, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O’Meara, Jon Lee, Paul Cattermole, Rachel Stevens and Tina Barrett.

Hannah is the only original group member not to have signed up for S Club 7’s reunion gigs this autumn, including a show at London’s O2 Arena.

This is because she had come down with an illness that left her bedbound.

She didn’t rule out joining her bandmates later this year, but would have to see how her health is.

Hannah said: “At the moment it’s S Club 6. It hasn’t got the same ring to it has it but I’m going to make a final decision soon. I just need to be sure everything will be okay health-wise.

“There is no point being paid pittance and getting exhausted. It has to be worthwhile and I have the kids to think about. I’d like them to see me up there. It’s an opportunity to do things right this time.”
