The Sun is speculating that S Club 7 might perform at Children In Need event on November 14. The article also claims that they have agreed to do a major TV show and a tour, which has NOT been confirmed, at least not yet. I like the Children In Need idea, I think it sounds doable. However, Jon is in Blackpool at that day performing in Copacabana. Maybe they’ll get him a substitute?
THE S CLUB 7 party could be restarting sooner than planned – all thanks to Pudsey Bear.
Members of the Nineties pop sensation are in talks with the BBC about performing together for the first time in 12 years during this year’s Children In Need telethon.
It comes just weeks after I revealed they were to reunite for a major TV show and money-spinning tour, after receiving the backing of their creator Simon Fuller.
S Clubbers Rachel Stevens, Jon Lee, Hannah Spearritt, Jo O’Meara, Tina Barrett, Bradley McIntosh and Paul Cattermole met recently for talks at Fuller’s XIX company in London to discuss a launch at Children In Need on November 14.
Things went so well that they followed it up with a boozy lunch and cocktails at Balans in Soho.
And yesterday the band’s official Twitter account @SClub7 got the blue tick verification — a sure sign an announcement is imminent.
My source revealed: “The reunion is definitely on but everyone involved wants a massive launchpad, which is why Children In Need would be perfect.
“It could still all fall through because there are the diaries of seven people to work around, but it’s looking positive.
“The idea is for them to perform a greatest hits medley, including S Club Party and Reach.
“If the reaction is good a tour will be announced.”
S Club 7 already have a big history when it comes to Children In Need.
In 2000 and 2001 their songs Have You Ever and I Never Had a Dream Come True were the charity’s official singles. Both songs topped the charts.
My insider added: “Jon is busy with theatre, Hannah is working on TV projects and Rachel is a judge on The Voice in Ireland.
“But for the rest of them this is a real second chance to ditch the pub gigs and become stars again.”
It’s now or never guys — take the chance.
