Former S Club 7 singer Hannah Spearritt has revealed her earnings from S Club 7 totalled £600,000 after four years in the pop band.

S Club 7 enjoyed 12 top ten singles and four albums selling 14 million copies before the band split in 2003, months after Paul Cattermol, her former boyfriend, left the group.

Spearitt went on to appear in a number of acting roles and joined the S Club 7 reunion tour in May last year. The 34-year-old, who joined the BBC One drama Casualty in December, told The Daily Telegraph her best-paying jobs were as a singer in S Club 7 and as an actress in Primeval, a BBC science fiction drama.

While admitting she is now more careful with her finances, Spearitt appears to have invested hear earnings quite sensibly by buying property in London.

“I used it to buy my first ever house with Paul. It was a mews house in Crouch End with three bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, lounge and toilet downstairs. It was nice. We paid £375,000 and then sold it for about £475,000 after three years,” she said.

Spearitt said she also still enjoys royalties from her time in S Club 7.

“Things pop through all the time in terms of DVD sales from Primeval or royalties from S Club 7.

"You might get 57p or a couple of thousand. It really depends. You can’t rely on it, but it’s a bonus when it does come in.”
