Along with S Club 7 members Tina Barrett, Jon Lee, Jo O’Meara, Hannah Spearritt, Rachel Stevens and Bradley McIntosh, Paul enjoyed a number of hits including Don’t Stop Movin, Bring it All Back, Reach for the Stars, and S Club Party.

Now, Paul has revealed that he’s popping up on First Dates Hotel, which sees maître-d Fred Sirieix and his matchmakers welcome singletons from across the UK.

The Guardian has revealed that Paul will also struggle with quite how to reveal to his date his life as “an entertainer”!

Paul also talked to the paper about how he’s amazed to be still answering questions about S Club 7. “It was five years of my life. I definitely thought, when I was 20 that by the time I was 40 it would be a done thing. And it’s not… I’ve been answering S Club 7 questions for 20 years. It will be great – it will be bliss – to one day not have to, but it’s part of it, and I totally accept that”.

S Club 7 did actually tour as recently as 2015, which saw the band perform their greatest hits. Band member Hannah Spearritt has of course become well known to TV fans, starring in ITV sci-fi series Primeval, guesting in Casualty and also appearing in EastEnders as Kandice Taylor.

Check out how Paul gets on with his date on First Dates Hotel this Thursday on C4 at 9.00pm.
