TO the outside world S Club 7 was the picture of pop band perfection – but away from the cameras, one of its stars was harbouring a dark secret.

Now for the first time, Jo O’Meara is speaking out about her gambling addiction after denying she had a problem for years. She got hooked on "the thrill of the chase" while playing fruit machines ahead of S Club 7 performances and used it as a way to escape "the bad stuff" in her life. “I don’t think it was even about the money side of it for me,” Jo, now 43, tells The Sun.  “It was just getting the three sevens or leprechauns up on the fruit machine and the buzz that would give to me when it went up the top and the lights flashing. “All I could think about was what was going on right there and not having to worry about the stresses of the bad stuff, you know.” .css-16e4f55{margin:16px 0;}.css-u6yh49{background-color:rgba(246,242,249,1);margin:16px 0;}.css-1tapza8{padding:20px 15px;}.css-1bk4jdt{padding:20px.
