Former millennial heartthrob Paul Cattermole, of late 1990s British pop group S Club 7, has put his 2000 Brit Award on eBay.
Bidding on the award is already at £66,000 ($90,229) in advance of the January 19 close date, however that figure seems extremely high.
S Club 7 were one of the most successful pop groups of the 1990s and 2000s
This isn’t the first time a Brit Award has shot to an enormous price on eBay. One awarded to Abz Love of wildly popular boy band 5ive (also in 2000) reached £1.1m ($1.5m) in 2015.
Unfortunately eBay can sometimes attract ludicrous joke bids. It’s unclear how much Abz’ Brit Award really did sell for, but it’s almost certainly significantly less than $1.5m.
One Brit Award, awarded to popular British/Norwegian group A1 in 2001 sold for £750 ($1,025) a couple of years ago.
A figure around that range is probably more likely for this item.
Cattermole, who received only £600,000 ($800,000) for his initial stint of five years in the group, has said he's selling the award because he has bills to pay.
The lot will include various pieces of provenance as well as a meet and greet (depending on distance).
The question of what the S in S Club 7 stands for has been confounding everyone since the group formed.
Some have suggested it stands for sugar (they were originally going to be called Sugar Club). The group themselves maintain it stands for manager Simon Fuller’s first initial.
