Since S Club 7 split back in 2003, the ex-members have got up to a whole range of activities—with some pursuing solo music careers while others moved into acting or reality TV. With Rachel Stevens set to take to the ice for Dancing On Ice 2022, we got to wondering what else she’s been up to since her S Club days.
Rachel Stevens’ solo music career
After S Club ended, Rachel probably had the most successful solo singing career of all her bandmates. Her single Sweet Dreams My LA Ex - which was originally written for Britney Spears—reached number 2 on the UK singles chart in 2003. She went on to release two albums—Funky Dory in 2003 and Come and Get It in 2005.
In 2008, Rachel took part in the sixth series of Strictly Come Dancing. She and her professional partner Vincent Simone finished runners-up behind Tom Chambers and Camilla Dallerup. Rachel remains the eighth-highest-scoring female celeb in Strictly history.
Rachel joined the rest of her S Club 7 bandmates for their Bring It All Back tour in 2015. In 2019, she performed alongside Louis Smith, Melody Thornton and Lee Ryan in ’70s dance show Rip It Up. Rachel has also been involved in lots of charity work over the years, including for Make Poverty History and WaterAid.
Rachel Stevens’ family
Rachel has been married to Alex Bourne since 2009. They welcomed their first daughter, Amelie, in 2010 and their second, Minnie, in 2014. Following Amelie’s birth, Rachel released a series of songs titled ‘Tasty Tunes’ to encourage children to eat more fruit and vegetables.
