S Club 7 star Hannah Spearritt has shared intimate details about her and ex-boyfriend Paul Cattermole’s romance.
Paul, 46, also an original member of the seven-piece pop group, was found dead on April 6 at his home in Dorset, prompting an outpouring of tributes from fans and loved ones.
Hannah, 42, previously admitted: ‘I’m trying my best to hold it together but once I start, I can’t stop crying,’ but has now opened up about her and Paul’s years-long romance.
Hannah dated Paul twice over the years, with the pair first getting together in 2001.
During their first relationship, they were together for five years before they parted ways in 2006.
They later rekindled their romance for one final time in 2015, however, they parted ways again after a few months.
Speaking to the Sun over the weekend, Hannah said they’d been friends for years before striking up a romantic relationship, but recalled it was on a skiing holiday that she first realised she had feelings for her friend.
‘We had all gone away, a big group of us skiing, and I started to feel a little bit jealous if Paul was flirting with anyone else,’ she shared.
‘We had a bit of a drunken snog one night and then when we got back to LA it just kind of developed.’
Hannah went on: ‘We would go out on long drives together at night, up into the hills to watch the sun set.
‘There was about a six-month period of us sneaking around. We were going to each other’s apartments and would stay over, but sneak out in the morning.’
She and Paul first met at the National Youth Music Theatre, but Hannah said it was actually her pal Sheridan Smith who fancied him first.
Paul’s family and S Club 7 confirmed his death in a statement this month, which read: ‘It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of our beloved son and brother Paul Cattermole.
‘Paul was found yesterday, 6th April 2023 at his home in Dorset and was pronounced dead later that afternoon.
‘While the cause of death is currently unknown, Dorset Police has confirmed that there were no suspicious circumstances.
‘Paul’s family, friends, and fellow members of S Club request privacy at this time.’
