When you think of iconic pop groups, you imagine members are earning mega bucks to keep up on top of their celebrity lifestyle, however S Club 7 member Hannah Spearitt gave us an insight into the REAL earnings of a 90s pop star and it may not be what you’d expect…

The pop star and former Casualty actress revealed to the Daily Mail that she earned just £150,000 per year whilst in the band. Surprised? Us too!

She said: “I got about £600,000 from S Club 7 over four years. It was a lot of money, I didn’t really realise.”

Many may expect such high-profile bands to be earning millions of pounds every week- from the photo shoots, album releases and sell-out concerts, but Hannah has proved otherwise.

She also said that she used the money to buy a house with band mate and ex-boyfriend Paul Cattermole.

“I used it to buy my first ever house with Paul. It was nice. We paid £375,000 and then sold it for about £475,000 after three years.

“I didn’t realise how lucky I was then to be able to buy the house outright. I really appreciate it now.”
