S Club have been forced to cancel their reunion gig, which was set to take place tonight.

Bradley McIntosh, Rachel Stevens, Jo O'Meara, Tina Barrett and Jon Lee were due to take to the stage in Merseyside this evening however, the show has been called off.

The arena has announced the gig has been postponed due to an 'unforeseen technical issue'.

The band’s comeback tour kicked off in Manchester yesterday (12 October) where S Club members on stage made sure to pay an emotional tribute to the late vocalist Paul Cattermole.

S Club - formerly known as S Club 7 - took to the AO Arena to commence their 25th anniversary reunion tour.

Hannah was also not present after previously withdrawing from the 'The Good Times' tour earlier in the year.
