The S CLUB 7 official website has been reworked to remove “7” following the death of Paul Cattermole.
This comes after a shocking departure from the band, which the group announced today.
Jo O’Meara, Rachel Stevens, Tina Barrett, Jon Lee and Bradley McIntosh gave an update as they spoke as a group for the first time since Paul’s death.
They explained that following Paul’s shocking death, Hannah Spearritt will not be taking part in the group’s reunion tour this year.
S Club 7 has since removed the “7”. from their website to reflect the death of Paul, and have now changed it to “S Club” instead.
Fans will still be able to view information about S Club’s upcoming tour and purchase merchandise.
Hanna wanted to celebrate the 25th anniversary with her bandmates since they achieved international fame with their debut album.
While Jo and Tina fought back tears, Jon said, “While Hannah will always be a part of S Club, she won’t be joining us on this tour.”
In April it was confirmed that S Club 7’s Paul was found dead at his home in Dorset, aged 46.
Paul and Hannah, 41, began dating in 2001 after becoming friends at the National Youth Music Theater as teenagers.
But their on-off relationship failed.
In the clip, Rachel explained, “We’re taking the time to process this and deal with it.”
Tina added, “It’s just really sad and it’s really, really hard to process right now.”
Paul was dubbed “big brother” by Bradley in the heartbreaking video.
He continued: “Nobody could ever replace our Paul. He lives on in each and every one of us.”
“However, the five of us are very excited and ready to move on and it will be our tribute to Paul.
“We’re renaming the tour ‘The Good Times Tour,’ which is the song Paul wanted to sing.”
Jon struggled to keep talking when he started crying.
Tina added, “That was Paul’s song and all the fans know it was his song so it just feels right.”
“He will always be with us,” Rachel added.
In closing, the band thanked the fans for all their messages and the love they showed Paul.
