Where the S Club Juniors are now – WAGs, royal impersonator and X Factor flop
S Club Juniors are undeniably a success story – starting off as a spin-off band of S Club 7 before arguably becoming as famous as the main group.
Originally meant to support the adult group during a Wembley Arena show, S Club Juniors formed off the back of a CBBC Talent Show which saw them showcase their vocals at a young age.
And it wasn't long before the Juniors were added to every other show on the main band's sell-out countrywide arena tour.
With six top 10 singles to their name and their own TV show, the group eventually decided to go their separate ways in 2004.
And while two members were to be reunited in another band further down the line and decided to stick about in the showbiz world, others decided to live more low-key lives.
Here's what the S Club Juniors are up to these days.
Frankie's is a name that's stuck about in famous circles.
When The Saturdays were formed in 2007, Frankie signed up with old pal Rochelle Humes and went on – with Mollie King, Vanessa White and Una Healy – to wrack up 13 top 10 singles in the UK.
And The Saturdays opened a number of doors for Frankie, including 2014's Strictly, in which she finished as runner-up with pro partner Kevin Clifton.
She's also made appearances as a Loose Women panellist, co-hosted 2017 gameshow Cannonball, and is a best-selling author.
In her book Open, Frankie bravely opened up about her mental health struggles.
In 2014, she tied the knot with footballer Wayne Bridge, and the two of them now share sons, Parker and Carter.
A firm favourite on This Morning, Rochelle hasn't been seen on the sofa for a while.
She took over from Holly Willoughby beside Phillip Schofield when Holly jetted Down Under for I'm A Celeb in 2018, and she's even sat in for Lorraine Kelly.
She and JLS hubby Marvin Humes recently welcomed their third child and first son together, Blake, giving a baby brother to daughters Alaia and Valentina.
Rochelle's romance with now-husband Marvin hit headlines in 2010 when they went public, and she walked down the aisle two years later.
As the eldest member of the band, Aaron had his nose in books studying for his GCSEs when the S Club Juniors craze reached a fever pitch.
And despite his stunning vocals, Aaron determined his true calling was in dance – performing alongside acts like Taylor Swift, Little Mix, Kylie Minogue, Take That and JLS.
Aaron even worked closely on dance routines with Frankie and Rochelle during their Saturdays stint, and has appeared on The X Factor, Britain's Got Talent and The Voice.
As if that résumé wasn't impressive enough, he's choreographed for Dancing On Ice and The Greatest Dancer.
Jay's route to fame with S Club Juniors was an unusual one.
As a superfan of the main group, he took a long shot and sent in a video of himself singing – they were so impressed they wanted him for the Juniors.
Jay now goes by stage name Jay Perry, and for years has appeared in theatres up and down the UK in productions such as Hairspray and Save The Last Dance For Me.
In 2018, he landed a spot in Motown: The Musical, and the following year he was cast as the standby for Alexander Hamilton in Lin-Manuel Miranda's global sensation, Hamilton.
Much like Rochelle and Frankie, Daisy went on to different musical pastures.
In 2007 she joined girl band Above, signed by Beyoncé's dad Matthew Knowles.
The band struggled to break into the charts, and reached the Boot Camp stage on The X Factor.
Newcastle-based Daisy is now a highly successful make-up artist, and married to footballer Jonjo Shelvey, with whom she shares two children, Lola and Alba.
Five years after S Club Juniors split, Stacey tried her hand as a solo artist, making it through to the judges' houses round on The X Factor.
Unfortunately, she failed to convince Dannii and Kylie Minogue to give her a spot in the live shows.
But she shrugged off her elimination and the year after went on the road singing for six months.
She went into radio and still sings in her spare time, and has gushed about her pride in her former bandmates.
Stacey is married to former Stevanage footballer Fraser Franks, and the two share a daughter, Nellie.
As the band's youngest member, Hannah was just 11 when she joined.
She wasn't meant to be part of the original line-up, but her management pushed for an extra member just so they could get her on board.
Hannah's now turned away from the glitz and glam of showbiz world.
She has four kids, giving birth to youngest Pippa in September, and is happily married to Phil Blackford.
Arguably S Club Juniors' biggest heartthrob, spiky haired teen Calvin delved into TV and film after the band's split.
He had a major role as the Duchess of Cambridge's brother, James Middleton, in 2011 flick William and Kate, which told the royal love story.
Calvin has also ditched the UK for LA, released his first EP in 2014 and works as a talent booker for the city's Peppermint Hippo.
He's been married to Melissa Callabero for nearly six years, and they became parents to daughter Aya, who turns one this month.
