Hannah Spearritt has spoken for the first time about her rekindled romance with fellow S Club 7 star Paul Cattermole. The couple were rumoured to have reconciled when pictures emerged of them kissing on the London Underground, and now Hannah has confirmed: "We're really happy together. Everything is great."
Hannah and Paul originally dated for five years, before splitting up in 2006. They found love again this year after S Club 7 reunited for a UK arena tour, and in an interview at the weekend, Hannah revealed that Paul has moved into her west London home.

Last week, her former fiancé, fitness instructor Adam Thomas, claimed that Hannah had "kicked him out" of their flat after finding love with 38-year-old Paul. Adam told the Sunday People the rejection felt like a "kick in the teeth".
In response to Adam's comments, Hannah said: "We're not bothered. No one is going to ruin what we have."
Certainly, S Club supporters are delighted by the reunion. "The reaction from fans has been great," Hannah revealed. "We've had lots of messages from people saying they're glad we're back together. It's so nice."

Bandmate Rachel Stevens has also given the reconciliation her seal of approval. "Hannah and Paul are so close and they always have been," she said. "They've always got on so well and always had that relationship. When we came back on tour that just came back straight away..."
Paul and Hannah started dating in 2001, before he decided to leave S Club 7 in 2002 to form a rock band named Skua - S Club 7 split in 2003 after five number one singles and a hit album. The couple stayed together until 2006 when she found love with actor Andrew Lee Potts.
