Claudia Winkleman’s cringe S Club 7 interview where publicist storms in resurfaces

A clip of Claudia Winkleman interviewing S Club 7, with disastrous results, has resurfaced after the group announced their latest reunion plans.

The iconic 90s group announced their reunion earlier this week, delighting fans with their plans for a stadium tour.

Following the news, an old interview from the BBC show Liquid News has resurfaced – and the clip sees a pre-fringe Claudia Winkleman in trouble after asking the singers a banned question about their finances.

Referring to reports abut the group's finances, Claudia said: "[Your manager] Mr Simon Fuller has 90 million in the bank.

"There are rumours that you guys are grumpy because you guys haven't made mint…"

“90 now? I thought it was 50 last week,” Jo O'Meara joked, in a bid to quell the tension.

“There are rumours, I don’t know how true they are, that you guys are grumpy because you haven’t made a mint,” Claudia continued.

Jon Lee then says no before Bradley McIntosh and Hannah Spearritt pretended to misunderstand her, joking they wished they had an edible mint.

“We are really really lucky to be where we are today and have the bank balances that we do,” Jo then added.

But it was a step too far for the band’s angry PR, who is then seen storming the set and declaring: “I’m not having that. I’m not having you ask that question.

“I’ve had to stop this and I’ve had to walk in here and we are going.”

Claudia defended her line of questioning, saying: "It has been in the papers and they didn't give a list [of questions that were off the table].

"You interview all sorts of people and you are sometimes told actually do you know what, don't ask this… but they seemed fine."

It comes after all seven original members of S Club 7 – Rachel Stevens, Bradley, Hannah, Jo, Jon, Paul Cettermole and Tina Barrett – announced that they will be doing a 11-date tour around the UK and Ireland to celebrate 25 years since the band was first put together.

The pop group were created by former Spice GIrls manager Simon in 1998 and produced mega hits including Reach, Don’t Stop Movin’ and their debut Bring It All Back.

In 2003, they disbanded but briefly came back together in 2014 to perform a medley of their best known songs for the BBC Children In Need Appeal, and then went on their first reunion tour.

When announcing the latest set of gigs, the band said: “After eight years it feels amazing to announce that we’re reuniting and performing together again.

“We’re so excited to bring the S Club party back to our fans across the country to celebrate 25 years of S Club 7.

“We can’t even believe it’s been so long. Music and friendship have always been at the core of everything we’ve ever done.

“We hope everyone can join us for one big party.”
