S CLUB 7 propelled her to fame, but Hannah Spearritt has become a well-known actress since the noughties pop juggernaut split.
As some of her former pop pals are preparing for a comeback she’s landed a role in EastEnders – here’s the FULL lowdown on the singer and actress…
Hannah Spearritt is an English singer and actress
Who is Hannah Spearritt?
Hannah Louise Spearritt, 36, was born April 1, 1981 and is an English actress and singer.
She shot to fame in 1999 with the pop band S Club 7.

Who is her ex-boyfriend Paul Cattermole?
Long-time partner and former S Club 7 bandmate Paul Cattermole claims Hannah was ordered to ditch him for an actor to catch the attention of Hollywood casting directors.
The two first met in their teens, before dating for five years until they split in 2005, and Paul believes Hannah was pressured into dating her higher-profile Primeval co-star Andrew-Lee Potts.
The singer exclusively told The Sun on Sunday of the split: “She was much more impressionable then than she is now so I reckon if an agent told her to ditch me then she might have listened.”
However, Hannah posted a scathing rant online in response to her former boyfriend’s accusation, branding him “broke” and “tragic.”

When did Hannah join EastEnders?
Hannah joined the cast of EastEnders on December 28, 2017.
She is playing single mum Karen Taylor’s younger sister Kandice, and immediately left her mark by scrapping with the family on the streets of the Square over money.
Kandice has managed to land on her feet and come into money with her marriage, and Karen brought her onto the screen in a last minute effort to save her from the bailiffs.
While she initially fought it, she eventually gave in and helped her sibling out.
Hannah is another fresh signing for show chief John Yorke since he took over from Sean O’Connor, who quit in June and comes after he announced Tamzin Outhwaite’s return.
Revealing her excitement about joining the cast Hannah said: “I’m over the moon to be joining the show, it’s such a huge part of British telly. I’m really looking forward to getting started and I can’t wait to see the Square in the flesh. Walford here I come.”
When did she have breast implants?
Hannah revealed in April 2018, that she had surgery in 2013 to increase her bust size, but was left in pain and fatigued.
Speaking to the Mail On Sunday she said: “My operation was performed by a top Harley Street cosmetic surgeon. I paid top dollar.”
She went on: “I never felt womanly enough on top. I’d compare myself to the other girls in the band during photoshoots and was jealous of their beautiful curves.”
Although pleased with the results, Hannah revealed her health began to suffer: “Within six months my hair started to fall out in clumps.
“Then I started sleeping more and more – eventually 22 hours a day. I couldn’t move from bed because my muscles were aching. I lost balance, I was always freezing cold and my brain fog meant I couldn’t remember anything.”
Eventually, in 2016 she made the decision to have them removed and almost immediately started to feel better.
“I woke from the op feeling 60 percent better almost instantly,’ she recalled. “My temperature rose up to normal and my fever disappeared, as did the fatigue and anxiety. My natural energy just came back.”
BBC Hannah has already left an impression on fans by joining Eastenders as Candice
Kim Kardashian Defends Kanye West’s Twitter Outbursts And Pro Trump Tweets – But Insiders Claims She’s Worried About His Mental Health
KIM Kardashian has leapt to the defence of husband Kanye West after he sparked concerns for his mental health with a barrage of bizarre tweets.
The reality star, 37, made it clear she differs with the rapper on his views on President Trump after he posted a number of messages seemingly endorsing the US leader, but added he was entitled to his views.
Kim Kardashian has leapt to the defence of husband Kanye West after he sparked concerns for his mental health with a barrage of bizarre tweets
Taking to Twitter, Kim wrote: “He’s a free thinker, is that not allowed in America? Because some of his ideas differ from yours you have to throw in the mental health card? That’s just not fair.
“He’s actually out of the sunken place when he’s being himself which is very expressive.
“Now when he spoke out about Trump… Most people (including myself) have very different feelings & opinions about this. But this is HIS opinion. I believe in people being able to have their own opinions,even if really different from mine. He never said he agrees with his politics.”
She went on to say her husband was “years ahead of his time” and she loves him for his willingness to go against popular opinion.
Kanye famously met with Trump at Trump Towers in 2016 when he was President-elect.
Yesterday the 40-year-old referred to Trump as his brother, praised his energy and declared his love for the controversial leader.
Kardashian insiders say Kim is racked with worry behind the scenes, worrying Kanye could end up in hospital again.
A source told The Sun Online.“Kim is terrified that Kanye’s putting himself under way too much pressure with work and spending too long hours in the studio.”
“Kanye never stops working and now he has so many deadlines, he’s up at odd hours and she’s worried he’s not taking care of himself.”
Kanye has worried fans recently after going on a manic tweeting spree in which he announced he was working on five albums – either as an artist or producer – and recently hinted he was ready to run for president with ‘Kanye 2024’ posters.
He’s also stopped working with Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun and his own longtime manager Izvor Zivkovic, tweeting yesterday: “I no longer have a manager, I can’t be managed”.
Close friend and radio host Ebro Darden also broadcast worrying audio of Kanye calling into his radio show sounding disorientated and confused where he repeated that he “loved” Ebro and sang a Stevie Wonder song.

The Cilla star, 36, famously pulled out of West End show Funny Girl in 2016, later citing “stress and exhaustion”.
After singing the Gnarls Barkley hit Crazy, she said: “So guys I obviously sang that song because it’s been quite well documented that I lost my mind for a couple of years.”
The star, who split from model Graham Nation earlier this year, went on: “Do you know what really makes me crazy? I think you will understand, or I hope you girls will, but men, they send me up the wall.

One audience member said: “Sheridan seemed very emotional. There were a lot of tears. Some songs she barely finished.”
She stunned the crowd after singing Dinner at Eight by saying: “It’s actually my boyfriend’s favourite.
