S Club – who had four No1 singles including Don’t Stop Movin’ and Never Had A Dream Come True between 1999 and 2003 – announced their reunion in February but two months later, band member Paul Cattermole died.

Earlier this month, we exclusively reported how Hannah's book called Facing The Music had originally been due out a week earlier – but will now hit shelves on October 12, hours before her S Club bandmates take to the stage.
