Profile Bio Text
Hannah Louise Spearritt is an English actress and former singer. She was previously a member of the successful pop group S Club.
She was born in Great Yarmouth in Norfolk, the youngest of three children and is the younger sister of former model and fashion designer Tanya Spearritt. Her uncle, Eddie Spearritt, from Lowestoft was a professional football player who played for Ipswich Town F.C. in the 1960s. Spearritt is said to have German-American, Irish, and Canadian heritage. At the age of 3, Spearritt modelled in a Mothercare catalogue. When she was 12, she landed a part in the Great Yarmouth Amateur Dramatic and Operatic Society`s production of Annie. Thereafter she successfully auditioned for the National Youth Music Theatre, and became part of the company. While with the NYMT she met future S Club member and boyfriend Paul Cattermole, as well her friend and future flatmate, actress Sheridan Smith. She appeared in the NYMT`s productions Pendragon (1994–1995) — performing in New York and Hong Kong, Tin Pan Ali (1996), and the West End musical Bugsy Malone (1997) — she was a member of the original cast.
In 1998 she got a part in the television film The Cater Street Hangman, playing the part of a maid who gets murdered. She had also made appearances on the National Lottery Show and Blue Peter. While Hannah was studying mathematics, performing arts and media studies at college in Great Yarmouth, she auditioned for S Club 7 after seeing an advert in a magazine - it was a life changing decision.
Spearritt is currently living with and dating her Primeval co-star Andrew-Lee Potts whom she met on set. Her hobbies include kickboxing, tennis and photography.
She was a member of S Club from 1999 to 2003. She co-starred in the groups own TV series - Miami 7 (1999), L.A. 7 (2000), Hollywood 7 (2001) and Viva S Club (2002). She took part in three UK tours, won two prestigious BRIT Awards and numerous other awards. Along with Rachel Stevens, Spearritt was a regular pin-up in dozens of magazines and was a regular in the FHM Top 100 Sexiest Women polls between 2000 and 2004. Perhaps more importantly for her future career, she gained the chance to act in a movie, when S Club released their movie Seeing Double in early 2003.
Most famously, in October 2001, amid a blaze of publicity, Spearritt revealed that she had been in a secret relationship with fellow band member Paul Cattermole for the previous six months. In 2002, Cattermole was the first to quit the group and thereafter S Club 7 became simply S Club before ultimately splitting in May 2003. Spearritt and Cattermole`s relationship, however, would continue until early 2006.
In the last week of S Club`s existence, Spearritt management claimed she was at home in bed with the flu. She was actually in Los Angeles to audition for a role in the film Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London, a fact that Hannah revealed at the UK premiere of the film on 2004-03-24 in London. She got the role and three days after leaving S Club she began filming.
In March 2004, Spearritt successfully auditioned for a minor role in the horror Seed of Chucky, a movie which was seen by some as an attempt to distance herself from her squeaky clean S Club image. Shortly after completing filming, Spearritt decided to take a break from show-business to travel and spend time with her family.
In early November 2005, she made her acting comeback in the BBC`s Blessed, an eight part sitcom. In Blessed, she played a minor role, appearing as a member of a fake girl band, in two episodes. December 2005 saw Spearritt appearing in the unsuccessful West End musical, Snow! The Musical, at London`s Sound Theatre. The musical was cancelled just three weeks into its run because of poor ticket sales - one show managed to attract an audience of only two people.
In February 2006, it was revealed that Hannah had landed a lead role in a brand new ITV series called Primeval. Hannah plays the role of Abby Maitland, a reptile enthusiast who gets mixed up with time travelling Professor Nick Cutter (Douglas Henshall) afer discovering a species of reptile she had never encountered. The series began on 10 February 2007.
In late 2006, Hannah began filming for ITV1, for a guest part in Agatha Christie`s Marple television mystery series. The episode, entitled At Bertram’s Hotel, was broadcast on 23 September 2007.
