S Club 7 star Paul Cattermole has had his cause of death confirmed.

S Club 7 is a British pop group which formed in 1998.

It consisted of seven members: Tina Barrett, Paul Cattermole, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O’Meara, Hannah Spearritt, and Rachel Stevens.

The band had huge success in the late 1990s and early 2000s with hits such as ‘Bring It All Back’, ‘Reach’, and ‘Don’t Stop Movin’.

The group had 12 top 10 singles – including four songs that charted at number one – and they also won two Brit awards.

Sadly, S Club 7 were rocked by some tragic news in April when they announced that Cattermole had passed away at the age of 46.

The band’s management said in a statement at the time: “We are truly devastated by the passing of our brother Paul.

“There are no words to describe the deep sadness and loss we all feel.

“We were so lucky to have had him in our lives and are thankful for the amazing memories we have.

“He will be so deeply missed by each and every one of us. We ask that you respect the privacy of his family and of the band at this time.”

He was reportedly found dead at his home in Dorset and police said at the time that no foul play or suspicious activity was involved.

His cause of death has now been confirmed by Dorset Coroner’s Service.

A spokeswoman said: “I can confirm that Mr Cattermole died from natural causes and our investigations have concluded.”

An inquest into the Cattermole’s death will not be required.

However, Dorset Police have claimed that its enquiries will remain ‘ongoing’.

The shocking news came just weeks after the band announced that they were reuniting for a 25th-anniversary reunion tour.

The tour will still proceed but under the name of S Club after band member and Cattermole’s ex-girlfriend Hannah Spearitt dropped out of the group following his death.

They have also announced that the tour will be renamed Good Times in memory of Cattermole.

In an emotional Instagram video, the band discuss their friend’s death.

S Club member Jon Lee said: “We have been in a bit of shock, and it has taken a while for us to find the right words to describe how we feel about losing our brother Paul.”
