Reports emerged this week (beg23Nov15) suggesting that Paul and Hannah had called it quits for a second time, and Paul's representative has now confirmed the news.

"Yes he has split from Hannah," he tells Digitalspy.co.uk. "But this was due to schedules and they really do remain very close."

S Club 7 announced their comeback in August, 2014. They originally split in 2003 after five years together.
