S Club 7's Paul Cattermole sells second BRIT Award for staggering sum
Former S Club 7 member Paul Cattermole, 40, has sold another one of his BRIT Awards.
After putting his Best Newcomer statue he won with the band in 2000 onto eBay, the auction attracted a lot of attention and eventually sold for just over £66,000.
His second award to go under the virtual hammer – his accolade for Best Single – has now sold for £65, 800, attracting 55 bids; earning just shy of the amount he received for his first award.
He had taken to Twitter to highlight the eBay auction, in the hope of bagging an even bigger sum than the first, especially after the amount of media coverage it received.

Advertised as ‘Like New’ and in ‘As new Condition’, the auction concluded on the evening of 25 January.
Like the first auction, the description stated the details of the item: ‘Here is the Master Card Brit Award for “Best single” 2002 which was “Don’t Stop Movin” Awarded to Paul Cattermole of Sclub7,’ it says.
‘This Category is very prestigious and one of the highest accolades that a Band or Artiste may wish to have,’ as it further describes the gong.
‘This is a 13 1/2 inch high Statuette of Britannia . With – Best single Sclub 7 Paul Cattermole – Engraved’.
‘Due to a highly successful sale earlier on today of Paul’s “ best Newcomer” Brit award which received an unprecedented amount of interest from all over the world. Paul is delighted to put for Up for auction his 2nd and final Brit Award for “Best Single 2002”, to give any prospective bidders and fans who missed out on the Previous auction, a chance of owning one of the most prestigious awards in the Music Industry,’ the post acknowledged; allowing previous bidder who’d missed out the first time around to get involved.
In an attempt to eradicate fake bids, Paul’s auction, as per his former one, stated: ‘Please remember that the winning bid is legally bound and any spoof bids will be dealt with in accordance to Ebay Rules.’
It’s since encouraged other musicians, such as Abz from 5IVE, to jump on the bidding bandwagon and pop his award on the auction site, after it was revealed the alleged £1 million he once received for one of his statues had eventually fallen through and failed to sell.
