S Club insist ‘door is always open’ for ‘missing’ star Hannah after she claims they're 'banned from talking to her' | The Sun

S CLUB has insisted the "door is always open" for Hannah Spearritt – despite their former bandmate claiming she was left out of their reunion tour.

The Sun yesterday revealed Hannah told trusted sources her former bandmates Rachel Stevens, Jo O’Meara, Bradley McIntosh, Jon Lee and Tina Barrett have been “ordered not to speak to her directly”.

Hannah — still reeling over the death of her former bandmate and lover Paul Cattermole — claims she realised she was not being included only when the band went behind her back and filmed a social media post without her.

Quizzed on Hannah's future with S Club, This Morning host Craig Doyle asked the band about the claims.

Refusing to answer directly, Jon attempted to dismiss the story, adding: "We're doing a 15-date tour across the country which starts in Birmingham on October 12th. We're going back to Dublin. We're really looking forward to seeing the Irish fans."

Pushing back, host Josie Gibson asked: "The door is always open for Hannah, is that what you're saying?"

Jon added defensively: "Yeah we've said that many times."

His bandmate and lead singer Jo said: "Yeah, it's always open.

"We are doing a lot of stuff in 2024 so you never know what's going to happen in the future.

"Right now we're just really excited and really looking forward, concentrating on the tour and making it a special show."

The Sun revealed that Hannah was about to sign her contract but she says she was then “blindsided” after bosses went ahead with the launch.

Hannah turned to lawyers, sparking weeks of tense negotiations between the two sides.

Frantic band bosses finally asked her to rejoin the group and tour — but by then she felt too “betrayed” by what had happened.

And sources said that though she has now put pen to paper on an agreement, they worry that there is “little to no chance” of her making an appearance because of the “bad blood” among the group.

An insider with a ringside seat at the extraordinary infighting behind the scenes of the band’s 25th ­anniversary tour told The Sun: “Hannah is devastated.

“She was pushed out, and doesn’t understand why. The rest of S Club has been told not to contact her.”

The claims wildly clash with the united front portrayed by the band in their first chat since the tragic death of Paul.

They vowed last week to press ahead with their arena tour despite his sudden death in April aged 46.

It was then revealed that Hannah would not be joining the comeback, reducing the original S Club 7 to S Club 5.

Hannah was devastated by the death of Paul, who she dated from 2001 to 2006 before they briefly rekindled their romance in 2015.

From the late 1990s, S Club 7 were one of the biggest groups around, with four No1 singles including Never Had A Dream Come True and Don’t Stop Movin’.

The Reunited tour kicks off at Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena on October 13 with dates across the country, ending on October 29 in Birmingham.

Agents for the band yesterday acknowledged Hannah did not sign the initial contract presented to her.

They said all S Club stars have now signed agreements, which could enable Hannah to join the tour at a later date.
