Last year, Jo left many fans stunned when she unveiled her new look during an appearance on ITV’s Lorraine.

Adorable: Jo’s fan were delighted with the update as they penned their birthday well wishes 

The star, who rose to fame as a member of the iconic band in the 1990s, chatted to presenter Christine Lampard ahead of the release of her new solo album With Love. 

Jo, who previously revealed she quit smoking and booze as part of a lifestyle, surprised many viewers with her drastically different appearance.  

Speaking to Christine about her new solo record, Jo revealed it’s been 16 years since she recorded any new music.

She said: ‘It’s been a long time, it does feel so strange, but I’m so excited. There’s one on there which is particularly personal, it’s called Lay Your Hurt On Me… which I wrote for my friend Daniel who passed away from cancer, my little dedication was to write a song and put it on the album so his memory could live on forever.’

 Best decision: Jo previously said of her split: ‘He’s [Lenny] going to be loved by both his parents, and he’s not going to see us feuding or arguing’

Throwback: Jo recently left many fans stunned when she unveiled her new look during an appearance on ITV’s Lorraine

Jo added: ‘Coming back after such a long time is so nerve-wracking, you think it would get easier, but I just get more and more nervous. It’s so exciting, I just feel so so lucky to be back.

‘I just love music, I’ve grown up with it, it’s my whole life, it’s what I want to do and all I love doing. It’s very special for me to be back making it.’

However when asked about swirling rumours of an S Club 7 reunion, Jo was tight-lipped, saying: ‘There’s been no meetings, no plans… there’s been no official talks about us doing anything else. 

‘Everyone else is really busy in their own lives doing their own projects and raising their own kids. Who knows what will happen in the future, I wouldn’t rule anything out. I’m back now and I definitely don’t want a 16-year gap before a new [album].’
