Former S Club 7 star Jo O'Meara has opened up about her shock gambling addiction for the first time, admitting that it helped her escape "the bad stuff".

Jo, 43, found fame with pop group S Club 7 at the tender age of 20 in 1990, and she and her bandmates saw massive success in the UK with hits such as Reach for the Stars.

However, now Jo has admitted that things weren't always as rosy as they seemed, and she found herself seeking an escape from the pressures of the limelight by playing on fruit machines.

She appeared on Thursday's episode of ITV's Lorraine, where she talked to the Scottish TV personality about her battles with addiction.
