S Club 7 star Paul Cattermole has just revealed he was contractually obliged to date Hannah Spearritt and now our entire childhood feels like one big lie.
All the sweet moments they shared both in real life and on TV? Fabricated. FABRICATED.
We feel like we’ve Never Had A Dream Come True, tbh (sorry).
Paul told The Guardian’s G2 supplement that their romance ‘did not happen organically’ and was ‘written into the Hollywood 7 show’.
Hollywood 7 was a spin-off of the band’s 1999 CBBC show Miami 7 and featured their fellow bandmates Tina Barrett, Rachel Stevens, Jo O’Meara, Bradley McIntosh and Jon Lee.
Paul – who quit the band in 2002 – said that because of the storyline, he and Hannah (who recently had a baby) just ‘sort of happened’.
When asked if he was forced’ into the relationship, Paul agreed but added that he quickly ‘grew into the idea’.
The pair split up in 2006, but then got back together for a few months later in 2015 before splitting for good.
S Club 7’s show Miami 7 was getting around 90million viewers around the world when it was first aired in 1999 – the same year that their first song Bring It All Back topped the UK charts.
*Cue group singalong of ‘Don’t stop, never give up…’*
Paul, who previously had a jokey feud with Jo O’Meara, also claimed the people who created the group – Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller and the like – never actually wanted him to sing.
Poor Pauly confessed that he felt like he’d been brought into the band purely to ‘answer questions in interviews’.
