Get a job.

He would actually be more interesting than the likes of Abs and Shane Lynch if he entered CBB.

Karma unfortunately. You leave a high profile, well paid job like S Club 7 then do next to no work for the next 15 years so go bankrupt. You weren’t the lead singer, doing a bunk wasn’t anything like ‘doing a Ginger’ and your career ended.

Any normal person would get on with it and realise they’ve gotta pay the bills, but 15 years later he’s trying to go down the reality TV show route and discovers only now he isn’t famous enough for even Celebrity Big Brother.

Take some responsibility for yourself. Go get a job, earn a wage and get on with it like the rest of us.

I love S Club 7, but I can’t stand popstars who moan about how bad life has got when they’ve spent their millions - because they would have made a few million each: they sold well (US top 10 single too), made tv shows that were sold around the globe and then did a reunion tour too.

I’m not saying they individually made tens of millions. But he made enough money to last a lifetime and made bad decisions. You have to learn when to grow up.

See I think differently, menime123.

They were products - I bet that at their peak, they weren't making more than £200k per year apiece. I doubt any of them cleared a million pounds during their time in the band.

I agree he needs to find a job though - also, that shirt Loose Women bought him is awful.

According to the google, Hannah said she made £600,000 over 4 years. Okay, so maybe not millions. But £600k is a hell of a start in life and if you can’t use that to build a life and plan 2nd career then what the hell is the point.

Clearly I’m bitter he left because S Club 7 were my favourites back in the day, and everyone knows someone leaving means the end is nigh. But if someone had given me £600k in my early 20s there’s no way I’d have spent it all.

If only being a martyr were a job, he’d be pretty well off.

I’m shocked at how little they earned over 4 years, plus he only did 3. From what it looked like, S Club were a franchise that never stopped. Between all the tours, albums, 4 TV shows and movie, they must’ve been exhausted all the time.

How tragic. He even got rejected when he went in to kiss Christine Bleakley.

I feel so bad for him. Its easily to spend money quickly. Especially when you have debts. We don't know his personal reasons for the debt so I don't think we should judge. I think it's a bit harsh saying it's Karma. I feel for the guy.

Paul should learn off Chico how to make a gimmick out of himself.

That's around a million dollars in AUS if not more...... + That was just the 4 years. Sclub has repeats on TV - and their 'music / products' wouldn't of just stopped selling then.

Anyway, it's still a sad situation.

He isn't a listed songwriter, he isn't a Celine Dion-level singer so he doesn't get publishing rights - he is 1/7 of a pure pop act with atrocious catalog sales and less than stellar streaming. His residual checks probably amount to a couple of thousand per year these days, if he's lucky.

He said he used what he made from the reunion to clear his £60k of debts.

What a life!

There’s absolutely nothing stopping him getting a job though. My god, if he’s the hard up, go and become a pub and club singer - I’ve seen a thousand turns that couldn’t sing :lol:

Do you think he could do gay porn? Would there be a market for him?

Surely he must have made more than 60k from the reunion tour :o
