Nude leak, footballers’ wives and Hollywood – What the S Club Juniors did next

S Club Juniors shot to stardom back in 2001 after they were formed on a CBBC talent show, supporting S Club 7 on their Carnival Tour.

Their popularity saw them sign a deal with Polydor Records and they released seven singles, with all but one reaching the UK Top 10.

Their two albums, Together and Sundown, reached No5 and No13 respectively.

They changed their name to S Club 8 in 2003 and went on to appear in their own fictional TV show, like S Club 7 had.

Their show I Dream saw the band members attend a summer school called Avalon Heights where they worked on their performing arts talents.

After their chart success started to fall, S Club 8 disbanded at the end of 2004.

A few of them reunited in 2012 for a short-lived comeback tour, but haven't performed since 2013.

And if you've wondered what the band members – Aaron Renfree, Calvin Goldspink, Daisy Evans, Frankie Sandford, Hannah Richings, Jay Asforis, Rochelle Humes and Stacey McLean – have been up to since, Daisy Star Online has you covered.

Aaron Renfree

Aaron, now 32, was the oldest member of S Club Juniors and was studying his GCSEs when the group filmed I Dream.

After the band split up, Aaron stuck around in the showbiz scene but turned to dancing rather than singing.

He's worked with Pineapple Dance Studios in London and is now a choreographer and dancer.

Aaron has appeared on television shows The X Factor and The Voice as a backing dancer, as well as dancing for his former bandmates Frankie and Rochelle's old group The Saturdays.

The hunk has made appearances on the West End in Flashdance: The Musical as well as We Will Rock You.

He regularly shares smouldering snaps to his Instagram, showing off his rippling abs and bulging biceps.

But, back in 2017, Aaron accidentally leaked his own nude to the social media site.

Posing in front of a mirror completely naked, Aaron thought his privates were covered by clouding on the mirror.

However, what he didn't realise was his junk was reflected in all its glory on a button underneath the mirror.

A year later, Aaron poked fun at himself, posing in front of the same mirror, this time fully clothed, alongside the caption: "Won't be making the same mistake this year."

Calvin Goldspink

Fan-favourite Calvin stole the hearts of countless young girls during his time in S Club Juniors, thanks to his rendition of Puppy Love.

Like Aaron, he stuck around in the showbiz circuit after the band split and moved to Los Angeles for a short stint in Hollywood.

Now 31, Calvin joined the cast of the CW Network series Life Is Wild in 2007, which was based on the British show Wild at Heart.

It ran for just one season, containing 13 episodes, and was cancelled in February 2008 because of low ratings – but that wasn't Calvin's only acting gig.

In 2011, he appeared as James Middleton, Catherine Middleton's brother, in a television film – William and Kate – that aired in the US.

He tried his hand at a solo career an was signed by Joe Simpson – father of Jessica and Ashlee – in 2007.

The singer has performed in some iconic venues, including the Viper Room in LA and Ronnie Scotts in London.

Calvin and Joe parted ways in 2013 and returned to the UK, releasing his first EP The Lemon Tree in 2014.

However, he's since gone back to Los Angeles and now runs a night called Breaking Sound at The Peppermint Club in the Californian city.

Calvin is married to a woman called Melissa and they welcomed their first child together, Aya, in February.

Daisy Evans

Daisy gave another hand at singing after S Club Juniors split, joining five-piece girl group From Above in 2007.

They were eventually signed by Mathew Knowles – yes, Beyoncé's dad – and moved to the US to work on their debut album.

Their journey was followed for an MTV reality show called Breaking From Above, and resulted in their debut music video, Not The Same Girl, being released in 2011.

The group made it to the boot camp stage of The X Factor but made it no further than that.

Daisy now works as a makeup artist and has beautified some famous faces, including the likes of TOWIE star Saffron Lempriere.

In her personal life, Daisy got engaged to footballer Jonjo Shelvey in 2013, before they tied the knot in June 2015.

The couple have two children together, both girls.

Lola, six, was born in March 2014, and Alba, three, was born in May 2016.

Frankie Sandford

Frankie, 31, was arguably the leader and most popular member of S Club Juniors, breaking out on her own with Calvin for the lead single for their TV show I Dream.

She's not been out of the showbiz scene since she first shot to stardom, and joined The Saturdays with S Club Juniors bandmate Rochelle, who she knew from before the Juniors too.

They released their debut single If This Is Love in 2008, sticking around until 2014, releasing four albums, two EPs, 18 singles and a compilation album.

What About Us, featuring Sean Paul, reached No1 in the UK charts, while they had 12 other Top 10 hits.

Away from music, Frankie married footballer Wayne Bridge in 2014 after dating since 2011.

Now, Frankie and Wayne have two children together – sons Parker and Carter.

She's appeared on Hollyoaks Later and competed on Strictly Come Dancing in 2014 after turning down a coaching roll on The Voice.

Frankie made it to the final of Strictly but lost out on the top spot to Carole Flack.

The beauty has also hosted ITV gameshow Cannonball and won a selection of awards, including Best Dressed at the 2011 Glamour Awards.

Hannah Richings

Hannah was not in the original line-up of S Club Juniors, but was added last minute by Simon Fuller.

As the youngest member of the group, she never had a solo section on any of their singles.

She stuck around in the music scene for a short while after the group split, releasing a solo song in 2006.

However, nowadays, she's shunned the celebrity lifestyle and took regular jobs, including working at a Barclays Bank.

Hannah, now 29, married husband Phil Blackford in 2019 and they have three children together.

And it seems Hannah is still close with her former bandmate Jay, as she shared a snap of herself on the way to see him in London last year.

Jay Asforis

Jay landed a spot in S Club Juniors after sending an audition tape to S Club 7, which fast-tracked his way to the final auditions.

He had a background in performing arts after training at The Susi Earnshaw Theatre School.

And it's come in handy since his days as a teenage singer, enjoying a career in the West End, now going by Jay Perry.

Now, he's a standby in the West End version of smash hit musical Hamilton.
