Date of Birth: April 1st 1981
She was born in Great Yarmouth in Norfolk, the youngest of three children and is the younger sister of former model and fashion designer Tanya Spearritt. At the age of 3, she modelled in a Mothercare catalogue. When she was 12, she landed a part in the Great Yarmouth Amateur Dramatic and Operatic Society's production of Annie. Thereafter she successfully auditioned for the National Youth Music Theatre, and became part of the company. While with the NYMT she met future S Club member and boyfriend Paul Cattermole, as well her friend and future actress, Sheridan Smith. She appeared in the NYMT's productions, of Pendragon (1994-1995) — performing in New York and Hong Kong, Tin Pan Ali (1996), and the West End musical Bugsy Malone (1997) — she was a member of the original cast.
In 1998 she got a part in the television film The Cater Street Hangman, playing the part of a maid who gets murdered. She had also made appearances on the National Lottery Show and Blue Peter. While Hannah was studying mathematics, performing arts and media studies at college in Great Yarmouth, she auditioned for S Club 7 after seeing an advert in a magazine - it was a life changing decision. As a member of S Club (1999-2003) Spearritt became known to and loved by a large number of people. Spearritt quickly became one of the group's most popular members — her impish and hyper-active personality, as well as her trademark smile appealed to a wide audience.
In the last week of S Club's existence, Spearritt was officially at home in bed with the flu. However, she was in Los Angeles to audition for a role in the film Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London, a fact that Hannah revealed at the UK premiere of the film on 2004-03-24 in London. She got the role and three days after leaving the band she began filming. In March 2004, she successfully auditioned for a minor role in the horror Seed of Chucky, a movie which was seen by some as an attempt to distance herself from her squeaky clean S Club image.
