She rose to fame as one eighth of S Club Juniors, but now, after more than 10 years, Stacey McLean is preparing to make a comeback.

She was in the group (later called S Club 8) with Rochelle Humes (nee Wiseman), Frankie Bridge (nee Sandford), Jay Asforis, Daisy Evans, Calvin Goldspink, Aaron Renfree and Hannah Richings.

They were the lucky eight after being chosen from thousands on TV show S Club Search in 2001, but they disbanded after four years in 2005.

Four years later Stacey auditioned on The X Factor in 2009 where she reached the Judges' Houses stage. Then in 2013, Stacey, Daisy, Aaron and Jay reformed S Club Juniors where they were booked to perform a few live gigs.

Well now, 27-year-old Stacey is all grown up and ready to make her return to the limelight.
