A source told The Sun: “Everyone is in pieces. Hannah and the rest of the gang broke down when told what happened.
“No one can believe it. There is a real sense of horror and disbelief.”
Paul and Hannah first met as members of the National Youth Music Theatre in 1994.
At the time, Cattermole was 17 years old and Spearritt was 14.
In 1999 they the pair were both selected as members of a seven-member pop group named S Club 7.
But it wasn’t until May 2001 that their friendship turned romantic.
They kept their relationship a secret for the first six months before making a public announcement in November 2001.
Their S Club colleagues were supportive of their romance.
They dated until 2006 before getting back together in 2015, but they split shortly after.
