S Club Juniors’ Stacey Franks almost unrecognisable 20 years after pop career

S Club Juniors shot to fame in 2001, as the spin-off to successful pop group S Club 7.

The band was formed thanks to the TV show S Club Search, with nine budding pop stars selected to make up the band's line-up.

Members of the band included Rochelle Humes and Frankie Bridge, who went on to form wildly successful girlband The Saturdays, before embarking on careers in TV.

Over the years, many have wondered what happened to S Club Juniors' other members, Jay Asforis, Daisy Evans, Calvin Goldspink, Aaron Renfree, Hannah Richings and Stacey Franks.

Many turned their back on showbiz after the group disbanded in 2004, but one member who reappeared on our screens was Stacey Franks.

Stacey continued to pursue a career in music, and went on to take part in the sixth series of The X Factor in 2009. She made it through to boot camp, but was eliminated before the live shows.

Stacey, 32, has continued to work on solo music in her spare time, while also setting her sights on new business ventures in the world of fashion.

The singer's Instagram account shows that she manages two clothing businesses, Little Franks, an online boutique for children, and a women's fashion brand named Missy Franks.

While she's carved out a career in the online fashion world, Stacey has also found love and regularly shares adorable snaps of her family life online.

She tied the knot to former professional footballer Fraser Franks in 2017, and the loved-up pair welcomed their first child in 2019, a daughter named Nellie.

The family of three recently relocated to Blackpool, having turned their backs on the limelight.

The mum-of-one now looks worlds away from the 12 year old budding pop star who burst onto our screens in 2001, with many failing to recognise the star.

Stacey's Instagram is littered with glam selfies and family snaps, with her and Fraser regularly sharing loved-up selfies and adorable shots of two year old Nellie.

Stacey recently returned to her S Club Juniors roots, appearing on a podcast to mark the 20th anniversary of the band's debut single.

When approached about the possibility of a reunion, she said: "In 2014 Aaron, Jay, Daisy and I did a handful of gigs. We did a university Christmas ball where we supported S Club 3 – Bradley, Jo and Paul. It was a lot of fun and there was a lot of interest.

"There's been a lot of interest in us doing a reunion and The Big Reunion wanted us but it had to be everyone involved, bar Rochelle and Frankie because they were still in The Saturdays. But not everybody wanted to do it. Everyone is so busy."
