Now the group will be going ahead as a five-piece, their Instagram has been amended to ‘S Club.’
In a social media clip bandmember Jon Lee, said: ‘Sorry it’s been a while since you’ve heard from us but in all honesty we’ve been in a bit of shock and it’s taken a while for us to find the right words to describe how we feel about losing our brother Paul.’
Hannah and Paul dated from 2001 before splitting in 2006, with the pair rekindling their romance in 2015 before finally going their separate ways just months later.
Singer and actress Hannah has spoken of her devastation over Paul’s death and said she ‘can’t stop crying’ and her fellow band members have now confirmed she won’t be joining them on the upcoming tour.

Jon Lee, Rachel Stevens, Tina Barrett, Jo O’Meara and Bradley McIntosh announced they would be continuing the tour without her, with the production being renamed The Good Times Tour in tribute to Paul.
Tina said: ‘We’re calling the tour The Good Times Tour in tribute to Paul because that was his song and all the fans know that was his song so it just feels right.’
Rachel continued: ‘It’s taken a time to process and get our heads round it all, and also taking time to share time together so that we can remember Paul and all the memories we had together.’
‘It’s just really sad,’ added Tina. ‘It’s really, really hard to process it right now.’
Bradley said: ‘We’re all in so much disbelief and Paul was a big brother to us, all of us, and even to you guys out there. He truly was a unique specimen of a human being.
‘No one could ever, ever replace our Paul but he lives on inside each and every one of us.’

Getting tearful, Jo said: ‘Whenever Paul walked into the room, you definitely knew he was there because he would just light it up with humour and love, and just a really special person.’
Referring to Hannah’s absence in the video, Jon continued: ‘You’ve probably already noticed there’s only five of us here today and although Hannah will always be a part of S Club 7, she won’t be joining us on this tour.
‘We wish her all the best for the future. However, the five of us are geared up and ready to crack on. It’s going to be our tribute to Paul.
‘So we are actually renaming the tour The Good Times Tour, which is the song that Paul was going to sing.’
‘And he’s always going to be with us,’ said Rachel. ‘Such a huge part of this tour, so involved in everything that we are planning and we’re just going to keep his memory alive and share it with all of you, and it’s going to make it even more special.’
With a tear dropping down her face, Jo said: ‘It will and thank you to all the fans who have sent so many beautiful messages to us all… We’ll see you all really soon guys.’

It comes after Hannah said she has been concentrating on her life with her loved ones after the devastating news of Paul’s death.
Hannah admitted last month that she ‘can’t stop crying’ after pop star Paul died suddenly at the age of 46 earlier the same month.
An emotional Hannah revealed how Paul was the most excited of the group ahead of S Club’s upcoming reunion arena tour, revealing the pair, who dated for seven years, had laughed and hugged as they met up to ‘clear the air’ before the plans were finalised.
‘It’s still so raw and I have these moments where I don’t quite believe that it’s real. I still can’t believe I will never see him again,’ she told The Sun.

‘It’s all the more tragic because he was looking forward to the tour the most out of all of us. He just wanted to have fun and enjoy it.’
Paul was found dead at his home in Dorset on April 6.
The sad news came six months before the S Club 7 tour was due to take place in October.
Hannah told how she received a message from her management team asking her to contact them.
She explained: ‘I called the number and was told, “Paul has sadly passed, Paul has died”.
‘I couldn’t make sense of it and had so many questions. I was trying to process it but I just couldn’t.’
Hannah has concentrated on her life with her loved ones – partner Adam Thomas, 42, and their children Taya, four, and Tora, two.
However, Hannah said she is overwhelmed with grief when she is alone, adding ‘my heart is broken for him and his family’.

Hannah said Paul was happier than he had been in years, which makes it ‘even more heartbreaking’.
Primeval star Hannah expressed her gratitude for the ‘heartwarming’ messages of support from fans, saying they’d brought ‘a little ray of sunshine within the darkness’.
S Club 7 announced in February this year that they would be embarking on a reunion tour in October to mark their 25th anniversary as a band.
Hannah and Paul dated for seven years and eventually went through a tough split as a couple in 2015.
Their management arranged a meeting with a mediator so they could work through their differences in January.
Hannah said she wanted to look to the future and ensure they could work together harmoniously and not make the rest of the band feel awkward.
After their initial nerves dissolved, she said the pair were talking fondly about their time working together as a band in the 90s.
The pair first met when Hannah was 13, when they were both members of the National Youth Music Theatre.
They were both chosen three years later for S Club 7 which was put together by the manager of the Spice Girls, Simon Fuller, when Paul was approached directly and Hannah auditioned.

They later moved in to a flat in London’s East Finchley but they grew closer romantically while filming for the group’s BBC television series Miami 7 in the United States in 1999, with Hannah describing Paul as ‘my first true love’.
Paul left S Club in 2002 and he and Hannah split four years later.
They rekindled their romance when the pop group reunited in 2015 but they went their separate ways for good three months later.
It comes after Bradley McIntosh broke his silence to share a tribute to his late S Club 7 bandmate Paul Cattermole.
The singer spoke out on Friday after his bandmate was found dead at his home in Dorset on 6 April, with a cause of death yet to be announced.
Bradley, 41, wrote on Instagram alongside an old video of himself and Paul messing around by donning wigs in a shop at the peak of their fame: ‘I can’t believe I’m writing this right now but as many of you know we lost our dear friend, fellow band member and big brother Paul last week.
‘Thankyou for the good times the memories and big love. We had so many great adventures together.
‘I know your not going to be with us on the next one in the physical but you’ll always be with us in our hearts and thoughts. Gonna miss you. Love you bro. R.I.P.’
