Speaking to Christine about her new solo record, Jo revealed it’s been 16 years since she recorded any new music.

She said: ‘It’s been a long time, it does feel so strange, but I’m so excited. There’s one on there which is particularly personal, it’s called Lay Your Hurt On Me… which I wrote for my friend Daniel who passed away from cancer, my little dedication was to write a song and put it on the album so his memory could live on forever.

‘Coming back after such a long time is so nerve-wracking, you think it would get easier, but I just get more and more nervous. It’s so exciting, I just feel so so lucky to be back.

‘I just love music, I’ve grown up with it, it’s my whole life, it’s what I want to do and all I love doing. It’s very special for me to be back making it.’

However when asked about swirling rumours of an S Club 7 reunion, Jo was tight-lipped, saying: ‘There’s been no meetings, no plans… there’s been no official talks about us doing anything else. 

‘Everyone else is really busy in their own lives doing their own projects and raising their own kids. Who knows what will happen in the future, I wouldn’t rule anything out. I’m back now and I definitely don’t want a 16-year gap before a new [album].’

The singer took a break from the spotlight after being at the centre of Celebrity Big Brother’s race row with Jade Goody and Danielle Lloyd in 2007, when the trio were accused of racist and bullying behaviour towards fellow contestant Shilpa Shetty. 

However, Jo has now returned to the music scene with her first solo effort, and the star also discussed recording a cover of S Club 7’s hit Don’t Stop Movin’ for NHS workers amid the Covid lockdown.

She explained: ‘On a Thursday we’d go out and clap, when I came in I would get the old karaoke out and belt a few songs. I was getting them to put their requests in and I was singing as much as I could just to lift their spirits a little bit.

‘It was the 20th anniversary of the song Don’t Stop Moving and I’ve always wanted to take a classic S Club song and do a completely different spin on it… I’m really glad I done it because everyone seems to really enjoy it. It’s lovely that it’s on the album because it’s a little nod to where I’ve come from.’
