Paul Cattermole relists Brit Award on eBay

He recently put up his 2000 Brit Award for Best Newcomer on eBay, to which he received a response from a willing bidder.

But things didn’t go to plan for Paul Cattermole, as the bidder failed to pay the worth of the iconic gong – originally up for £65,000 – which forced the former S Club 7 star to put his award back on the market. 

This comes after the 40-year-old revealed his intentions for selling the prestigious award – a result of a bad injury during his stint The Rocky Horror Picture Show which left him out of work. 

 

‘I was in a bad way’: Former S Club 7 star Paul Cattermole, 40, has revealed the real reason as to why he put his BRIT award up on eBay – confessing that a bad injury left him out of work

Preventing a repeated occurrence, the St Albans native captioned the eBay image: ‘No time wasters please.’

Referring to the former buyer, he added: ‘He just wanted to wreck my sale!’ 

He also claimed the statuette is in a very good condition: ‘Grab yourself a bargain! Everyone thinks it’s sold!’

This follows on from his original offer on the selling site earlier this month – which racked up over 127 bids for the glittering music award.

MailOnline has contacted Paul’s representatives for comment.

He recently told NME his reasons for auctioning the gong:  ‘There an un-choreographed bit of dancing and someone fell on me. I was out of the show for about two months. My back has gone – it hasn’t been right since.’ 

Paul continued: ‘Things just haven’t gone well this year (in terms of finding work) with that injury. 

He also reportedly signed up for ITV favourite I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! for extra money but was turned down due to ‘not being famous enough.’ 

Speaking on the first time he put up the award, he admitted: ‘Four days from it going up, it hadn’t really moved much from around £3,000. And then it went to £9,000. Within the space of an hour, it went up to £60,000!’

Other than ‘paying bills’, Paul went on to detail what he would have done with the large sum of money, revealing he would love to record a Motown album.

The Reach hitmaker took to social media to express his thanks as he believed he sold the gong, writing ‘Shocked , stunned , amazed . Astonished . Dumbfounded . Flabbergasted.! Thankyou to everyone for you support. . I love you’ 

He wrote on the listing: ‘I didn’t expect it too skyrocket like this. Thanks for all the interest peeps.’ 

Paul originally listed the gong on the auctioning site for £650 on 5th January with a meagre three people bidding for it – years after 5ive’s Abz Love pocketed £1million for his gong.

This comes after Paul opened up about the demise of his relationship with Hannah in 2006 – blaming it on her bid for Hollywood fame, which left him wondering if she was the ‘same person’.

Speaking of Hannah, the former singer told The Sun: ‘I very much felt she thought she needed to ­prioritise her career.’ 

Hannah was only 12 and Paul was 17 when they met for the first time in 1994 and entered into a relationship seven years later, which lasted for five years.

However, Paul was reportedly left blindsided after the blonde called it quits on their romance – leaving him to now look back and reflect on the possibility of Hollywood casting directors having a say in who she should and shouldn’t date.

He continued: ‘I’m betting she was told, “So your current boyfriend is doing music stuff. Well, that’s great, but you really need an actor boyfriend.” 

‘She was much more impressionable then than she is now so I reckon if an agent told her to ditch me then she might have listened,’ he admitted.

Despite their less than amicable split, Paul fondly remembers the good times in the romance – admitting they were ‘passionate’ and would ‘steal kisses and cuddles in the dressing rooms.’

S Club 7 were a huge success with a series of top ten singles, including Bring It All Back, Reach and Never Had A Dream Come True.

Hannah, now 36, previously confessed to earning £600,000 over a four-year period with the band, although ‘she didn’t really realise’ how much this was at the time. 

She revealed that because of her lack of life experience, she had no real appreciation of how fortunate she was at the height of the band’s popularity. 

Meanwhile, former members, Jo O’Meara, Tina Barrett and Bradley McIntosh have re-grouped as SC3.
