S CLUB 7 songstress Hannah Spearritt was all smiles as she stepped out in public for the first time since her bitter spat with her bandmates.
The Reach vocalist, 42, donned leaf-patterned workout leggings and a lilac hoodie as she strolled around west London.
Hannah – who is set to release a tell-all book following her axing from S Club’s reunion tour – threw a rucksack over her shoulder as she explored the UK capital.
S Club – who had four No1 singles including Don’t Stop Movin’ and Never Had A Dream Come True between 1999 and 2003 – announced their reunion in February but two months later, band member Paul Cattermole died.
Shortly afterwards the group announced Hannah wouldn’t be taking part – but it was later claimed she was “pushed out” and felt “betrayed” by the group’s decision to move forward without her.
Yet despite the recent emotional rollercoaster, she appeared in good spirits as she headed for lunch with a pal.

As the weather heated up, she pulled off her jumper to reveal a short-sleeve grey logo top.
Hannah styled her blonde hair in natural waves over her shoulder and kept her make-up natural.
She padded around in comfy biker boots and held a bottle of juice as she strolled around.
Earlier this month, we exclusively reported how Hannah's book called Facing The Music had originally been due out a week earlier – but will now hit shelves on October 12, hours before her S Club bandmates take to the stage.

A source told us: “Hannah’s book is full of explosive claims about her time in S Club and exactly what happened with her exit from the reunion tour.
“It will not be pretty reading for the group and it feels like Hannah is trying to overshadow the tour.
“Things have the potential to get very messy.”
The remainder of the group have recently also opened up on Hannah's future with the group.
Bandmates Bradley McIntosh, 41, Jo O’Meara, 44, Jon Lee, Rachel Stevens, 45, 41 and Tina Barrett, 46, insist she could return in the future.
Asked about Hannah’s departure, Jon said: “I guess that’s a conversation for Hannah to have.
“She’s not going to be joining us on this tour but we’ve got loads of stuff that’s happening next year so the door is always open."
Meanwhile, Hannah – who now has two children with her boyfriend Adam Thomas – spoke about her heartbreak at Paul’s passing in an interview with The Sun on Sunday in April.

She said: “It’s still so raw and I have these moments where I don’t quite believe that it’s real. I still can’t believe I will never see him again."
Hannah added: "My heart is broken for him and his family. He was happier than he had been in years, so for this to happen now, makes it even more heartbreaking."
