There won’t be an inquest into his death

Paul Cattermole, who died last month aged 46, died from natural causes.

A coroner announced Thursday that as a result, there won’t be an inquest into the S Club 7 singer’s death.

The group’s founding member was found dead at his home in Dorset on 6 April, just weeks after S Club 7 announced a major reunion tour to mark their 25th anniversary.

The shows, it was confirmed Monday, will go ahead as planned this autumn, but without member Hannah Spearritt.

The band will also perform under the rebranded name S Club.

Cattermole was one of the original members of the band, famous for hits like ‘S Club Party’, when it formed in 1998.

He was talent spotted by producers from 19 Management and invited to audition. He left the band in 2002 and formed, Skua, but they broke up a year later.

In 2014, S Club 7 performed together at Children in Need and the following year reunited for the Bring It All Back Tour. Over the five years the band was together, S Club 7 had four UK No.1 singles, one UK No.1 album, and hits throughout Europe, including a top-ten single in the US, Asia, Latin America and Africa.

They recorded four studio albums, released eleven singles and went on to sell over 14 million albums worldwide.
