S Club 7’s Paul Cattermole tragically passed away last month, at just 46 years of age.

Cattermole was found in his home in Dorset on 6 April 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,” a statement from his family and friends read last month.

Yesterday, a spokesperson for the Dorset Coroner's Office revealed to the BBC that the singer died of natural causes, and due to the nature of his passing, there will be no further investigation into his death. The coroner didn’t offer any further details.

Cattermole passed away just weeks after S Club 7 announced that they had reunited and were poised to go on tour across the UK and Ireland. It wasn’t just any reunion – it was the group’s 25th-anniversary tour.

Earlier this week, S Club 7 announced that they would go on that reunion tour, sans another member, Hannah Spearitt, who won’t be joining them for the shows.

Calling the run of shows the Good Times Tour in honour of Cattermole, who sang lead vocals on the original song of the same name, the band members were visibly emotional as they explained what was to come in a video posted to social media.

“You’ve probably noticed that there’s only five of us here today, and although Hannah will always be part of S Club 7, she won’t be joining us on this tour,” Jon Lee said. “We wish her all the best for the future. However, the five of us are really excited and geared up.”

S Club 7’s Tina Barrett and Bradley McIntosh expressed their “disbelief” around the loss of their “big brother” Cattermole. “No one could ever replace our Paul, but he lives on inside each and every one of us.”

Rachel Stevens said the same: “He’s always going to be with us. He was such a big part of this tour… we are just going to keep his memory alive and share it with all of you and it’s going to make it even more special.”

After forming in 1998, the band became one of the most successful groups in the UK, winning the BRIT Awards for Best Breakthrough Act in 2000 and British Single Of The Year with Don’t Stop Movin’ in 2002. S Club 7 are also known and loved for their hits, S Club Party, Reach, and Two In A Million.
