S Club 7's Paul Cattermole has tragically died aged 46 and his heartbreaking last hope has been revealed. The singer had been looking forward to reuniting with his S Club 7 bandmates for the 25th anniversary, sadly something that was never meant to be.

Just two months earlier, he joined his bandmates - Hannah Spearritt, Bradley McIntosh, Tina Barrett, Jo O’Meara, Jon Lee, and Rachel Stevens - for a conference where he expressed his dreams for the future. Paul, who had since his singing days reinvented himself as a tarot card reader in 2021, then voiced his new hope of "new beginnings" while speaking at a press conference to announce S Club 7’s reunion in February. 

In footage obtained by MailOnline, Paul told the crowd of his hopes: "I saw wheel of fortune - that's good, that's good luck. I genuinely did look at the cards. There were other cards as well, ace of clubs - passion, new beginnings, your cup over-runneth with genuinely passionate emotion. It's positivity - something to be passionate about."
