S Club 7 singer Jo O’Meara rushed to hospital in ‘worst pain’ after back surgery

S Club 7 singer Jo O’Meara was rushed to hospital yesterday after emergency surgery failed last month.

The 43-year-old revealed she was on a drip in the ER at 4am as she struggled with the “worst pain yet”. The sun reports.

Jo told her concerned followers: “When will I get a break?? I really thought I was on the road to recovery.

“4am this morning the pain was the worst it has been yet! So here we are again! I’m devastated.’

Jo had to cancel live shows last month and had surgery to remove a disc in her back.

But she later said that she is still in a lot of pain and a scan showed that she needs another operation.

Last month she said: “As you can see I am back in bed. That’s because the back is playing games again. The pain was absolutely horrendous and today I got back some MRI scan results that were not the result I wanted.

“I actually have to go back to the hospital for further surgery on my back, which I’m honestly absolutely devastated about.”

The frustrating news has taken its toll on Jo’s mental health and she’s finding it hard to stay positive.

She continued: “And it has really made me feel in a pretty bad place if I’m being honest.

I have felt very depressed. The past few days have been really tough, but hopefully with this next surgery I’ll be fit and ready to go out again, so think positive.

Jo nearly died from a strangled bowl in 2016 while on tour in New Zealand.

After overcoming that scary experience, Jo changed her lifestyle by giving up smoking and drinking before her back problem hit her.

She rose to fame in 1999 with the pop band S Club 7, alongside Tina Barrett, Paul Cattermole, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Rachel Stevens and Hannah Spearritt.

The group released their first single, Bring it all backin 1999 and the song went straight to No. 1. They went on to have four UK No1 singles and a UK No1 album.
