S Club 7's Paul Cattermole died of natural causes aged 46

The S Club 7 member was found to have passed away from natural causes

A coroner has ruled that S Club 7 star Paul Cattermole's death was the result of natural causes.

The music star died on 6 April at his home shortly after the band announced their reunion and Dorset Coroner's Service has said their investigation has concluded that he died naturally.

His family announced his death last month after his body was found at his Dorset home, with the musician being pronounced dead on the afternoon of 6 April.

"It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of our beloved son and brother Paul Cattermole." His family said in a statement.

"Paul was found yesterday, 6th April 2023 at his home in Dorset and was pronounced dead later that afternoon."

They went on to say that there had been 'no suspicious circumstances' around Paul's death.

Paul Cattermole died of natural causes at his Dorset home aged 46.

Now the coroner's verdict is in and with the verdict of natural causes there will not be a further inquest into his death, though Dorset police have said their enquiries are 'ongoing'.

S Club 7 stars paid tribute to Paul following his death and said they would be going ahead with their reunion tour, though Hannah Spearritt decided to step down from the tour.

She and Cattermole had dated between 2001 and 2006, and then again for a period of time in 2015, and like her fellow bandmates was grief stricken to hear about his death.

"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." S Club 7 said in a statement.

"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."

Rachel Stevens later said she was 'heartbroken' about Paul's death in an Instagram post paying tribute to 'such a kind, gentle and sensitive soul'.

He was described as 'our sweetest soul' by Jo O'Meara who said she 'will forever treasure the memories we made' and declared that she would 'love you always Paul'.

S Club 7 had announced in February that they would be embarking on an 11-date reunion tour beginning in October, with five members of the band saying they would continue on with the show as a tribute to Paul's memory.
