SHE walked out of the S Club reunion after a row and now relations between Hannah Spearritt and her bandmates are getting even frostier.
As part of a major money-making effort after becoming homeless last year, Hannah is releasing her memoir and has pushed back the release date so that it comes out on the same day as the S Club reunion tour begins.
The book, titled Facing The Music, was originally due to be released a week earlier but will now go on sale on October 12, hours before Rachel takes the stage with her bandmates Bradley McIntosh, Jo O’Meara, Jon Lee and Tina Barrett enters.
S Club – which released four No. 1 singles between 1999 and 2003, including “Don’t Stop Movin'” and “Never Had a Dream Come True,” announced its reunion in February, but band member Paul Cattermole died two months later and shortly after, the group announced Hannah would not be taking part.
But it was later claimed that she had been “displaced” and felt “betrayed” by the group’s decision to continue without her, something she was not told about, people close to her said.
A source said: “Hannah’s book is full of explosive claims about her time at S Club and exactly what happened with her exit from the reunion tour.
“It won’t be a pleasant read for the group and it feels like Hannah is trying to overshadow the tour.
“Things can get very messy.”
Speaking to The Sun in July, Jon said: “She won’t be joining us on this tour but like I said, we’ve got a lot going onyear, so the door is always open.
“She could join us on the projectYear sometime.”
Tina added: “It’s nothing bad. It’s just that everyone needs their own space.”
When they read what she has to say, they may not feel the same way anymore.
Roman calls on ministers to put more money into mental health
ROMAN KEMP has taken his fight for better mental health to Parliament in a bid to secure more support and funding for those in need.
Theand television star, who has regularly spoken about his own battle with depression, wrote a moving open letter to ministers this week about his experiences and called on them to provide more money for schools to support children with depression, anxiety and other emotional distress.
Roman wrote: “At the age of 15, I was diagnosed with depression and had suicidal thoughts for the first time.
“Adequate support must be in place for those who need it and the sad reality is that in 2023 it is often individuals and charities trying to fill the gaps in a system that is increasingly overwhelmed.”
He said many schools were not equipped to deal with mental health issues and he urged that every school should have a mental health support team – while the Government currently doesis only 36 percent.
He added: “The current oneLet children across the UK compete in a lottery as to whether or not someone is there to help them.”
Roman was a keen mental health campaigner after losing a close friend, radio producer Joe Lyons, who tragically committed suicide in 2020 due to depression.
Since then he has founded and collaborated with several initiatives on the issue – and I turned to him when a GP prescribed antidepressants for me during a difficult time.
And he was exactly right.
We hope politicians take note of this and offer more support to local young people – it’s an initiative that could save many, many young lives.

Matty just wants a Big Mac
MATTY HEALY is one of the music industry’s greatest geniuses, but he’s unlikely to spend his money on fancy dinner dates as he’s an incredibly picky eater.
The 1975 frontman’s mother, Loose Women star Denise Welch, takes the blame for his limited palate because she raised him on a fast food diet.
She said: “Unfortunately I’ve been bringing them takeaways far too regularly and to be honest I feel a bit guilty because my kids aren’t good eaters.”
“They are picky and rarely finish anything, and that drives me crazy.”
Speaking to the My Favorite Takeaway podcast, released yesterday, Denise said: “Matty came home last week and the first thing he wanted to do was not see me but go out to get a sandwich.”

She made the announcement as she revealed she was working on a new collaboration with Puma, releasing a sneaker design called Avanti for £130 each.
Speaking to Vogue, Rihanna said: “This time we’ve expanded our creations to include children because I selfishly want my boys to have their dad in everything.” [Asap Rocky] and I wear or design.”
How strange of them.
Rihanna hasn’t posted a photo of her latest arrival yet, but I’m sure it won’t be long.
She did her firstfrom Rza in the opening post on her TikTok account.
And considering her new Avanti collaboration drops next Friday, I’d put my money on seeing the little one then.
