HANNAH Spearritt has opened up about her "traumatic" year following a secret health battle and the death of her bandmate.
The S Club star, 42, was left unable to get a train or cook for herself as she struggled with autoimmune disease.
On top of that she was left heartbroken by her ex boyfriend, Paul Cattermole’s death and her decision to step away from the band and the tour.
Speaking about her experiences, Hannah told Hello! Magazine: "I don't think I realised how much I'd deteriorated because it happened so gradually, I had no energy and couldn't even get on a train or cook dinner.
“That affected my mental health, too, because I've always been a physical and sporty person, it's only when you get better and can do things you love again that you realise how bad things were.”
She added: “It's been a tough and challenging year, and things happened that were quite traumatic.”

Hannah knew something was wrong when she started feeling chronic fatigue, brain fog and vertigo.
She believes the autoimmune condition was triggered after she suffered two miscarriages in 2022.
Hannah is about to take part in the next series of Dancing On Ice and says it’s down to using a serum, derived from her own blood to stabilise her – it also helps repair damaged organs and tissue.
The singer previously told The Sun about her condition and revealed it was made worse by stress.

Ultimately she made the decision to pull out of the S Club tour as she struggled to cope with everything.
“I hadn't been in the best of health — I've got a compromised immune system and stress makes it worse,” she shared.
“My body just couldn't cope with everything that was happening. I wasn't myself, I was getting these crippling panic attacks, was suffering from really bad vertigo and was tired all the time.”
