We always hear mixed reports about the actual salary of music stars. They seem to live like millionaires, but so often cry poor when the hits stop firing.

Well finally we have a definitive figure from Hannah Spearritt, one of the members of S Club 7.

Remember, they were music AND TV stars in the 90s.

“I got about $A1.2m from S Club 7 over four years. It was a lot of money, I didn’t really realise.”

That’s an average wage of $A300,000. Not bad!

“I used it to buy my first ever house with Paul (bandmate and boyfriend). It had three bedrooms. It was nice.”

“I didn’t realise how lucky I was then to be able to buy the house outright. I really appreciate it now.”

So responsible Hannah!
