It’s not every day that you find a former member of S Club 7’s Brit award on eBay, but there’s a first for everything.
Paul Cattermole, previously a member of S Club 7, has put his Brit on eBay – we promise, it’s true – and started out at a bargain price of £2000. That’s cheap, considering Abz from 5ive once sold his and set someone back a million pounds.
However, at the time of writing the bids have crept up to £66,000.
Paul has also offered a meet and greet with whoever buys it, if you’re interested in that. It does sound like it depends on where you live, though.
The description details the item as having a scratch here and there, but we can put that down to age. He does also admit that he’s neglected it a little bit, and the prize has never been professionally polished.
The description of the Brit award reads as follows:
“Here is the 2000 Brit Award for Best Newcomer Presented To Paul Cattermole from S Club 7.
“Statuette of Britannia 13 1/4 “ in height, it hasn’t been professionally polished, there are smudges that won’t come out without a pro polish.
“There are signs of age . Where the arms meet the shoulders at the back, and where the neck and chest blend into the top of the dress. An indentation on the inside of the helmet. That is a casting bubble and has always been there. *See photos*
“Letter of provenance will be provided , message for postage / meet and greet details.
“Paul can meet you and greet you and take photos, distance depending :-)”
Well then. It would definitely make a unique ornament for your home, perhaps in the downstairs toilet if you really wanted to show off. You could place it basically anywhere and it would be a fantastic conversation starter.
That one time you casually bid on a Brit award and got it off eBay…
We remember all the way back in the early noughties, where S Club 7 ruled supreme in the pop world. Singles like Reach and Bring It All Back still regularly get stuck in our heads, they were just that iconic.
The band was no more as from 2003, but since disbanding from the original group Tina Barrett, Bradley McIntosh, and Jo O’Meara do still do tours under the name of SC3.
The whole original band were set to regroup in 2015, but Paul Cattermole was the one who turned down the idea.
A source on the matter said: “It was Paul who decided he didn’t want to continue, and the other members didn’t want to release music without the whole band.”
It sounds like his decision might have stirred up some hard feelings, too.
“With S Club 3 now putting out the song, it could cause friction.”
We can’t help but feel a little sad about this whole thing.
