Ain’t no party like a televised, charity-motivated S Club mega-party

S Club 7

So. 4:3 girl:boy ratio pop superband S Club 7, aka the S Club Seniors, are back. Back to you, that is. Okay… fine, they’re “bring(ing) it all back to you”. I said it. I hope you’re happy.

Yes, that’s right. All seven S Club stars – even the still moderately high-profile ones (Rachel and Hannah basically) – have finally given in and, because they so love raising money for kids’ charities, will pretend to like each other for a limited time in aid of this year’s BBC Children In Need appeal.

First off, so you know it’s real, this is an audio clip in which the whole S Club bunch say their names, thus binding themselves in a verbal contract. Pop’s most magnificent seven will sing a megamix of their greatest hits on the big live Children In Need show, which airs on 14 Nov.

In the meantime, they’ve given the BBC a ‘band statement’ expressing their excitement. Which goes like this: “We’re massive fans of BBC Children In Need and it was great to be able to support the charity all those years ago. We’re really looking forward to bringing it all back for Pudsey, for BBC Children In Need and for all our fans who have been so great over the years. This is going to be the mega S Club party of all time!”.

If you’re too young to know or too old to care who and what S Club 7 are, this is a quickish history painstakingly compiled by Popjustice.
