‘I’ve spent 25 yrs trying to meet Bradley from S Club 7 but it’ll cost me £250’

An S Club 7 super fan has spent 25 years reaching for the stars in a quest to meet her idol Bradley McIntosh.

Marie Emma Warrington travelled across the UK to see the pop stars perform live dozens of times.

But she never had a dream come true because Bradley always remained out of reach.

The British group formed in 1998 and this week it announced a shock reunion tour – but fans are being charged hundreds for meet and greets.

Emma, who has dyslexia, dyspraxia and epilepsy, has been priced out but remains hopeful of one day getting a picture with her favourite popstar.

Speaking exclusively with Daily Star, the 42-year-old said: “I have been a fan since day one.

“I have all of their CDs and DVDs and pretty much everything they have done. I have been to all of their concerts they’ve done in the UK.

“Bradley just comes across as a very genuine guy but they all seem to. He is the one who stands out though.

“It would mean everything to meet him, it would honestly mean the world. He’s been my favourite for so long.”

Emma, from south east London, has met other stars like Olly Murs and Brian McFadden – but Bradley has evaded her.

Now some venues, like the Hydro in Glasgow, are charging £255 for a package deal to meet the band members later this year.

But for Emma this brings back miserable flashbacks from an S Club Allstars event in Reading when original member Brad was the only one not to turn up.

She remembered: “He was meant to be at the meet and greet but only two showed up and Bradley didn’t.

“We were told by the venue that once he comes he would get to meet him but we never did. I was very disappointed.”

And a change of circumstances means she won’t be able to afford the expensive meet and greets later this year.

She said: “We saw an article that said it would be about £290. If I had the money I would pay it. We wouldn't be able to afford it now but I was very excited when they announced their comeback.”

The huge fan is still planning to see the iconic British pop group play in The O2 arena in October but is so far struggling to get a ticket.

“I’ve been trying all morning on the presale for a ticket with no luck whatsoever,” she told us.

Despite this, she refuses to give up on her dream that one day she will finally see Bradley face to face.

The group has confirmed it will be performing in venues across Liverpool, Sheffield, Dublin, Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester, Cardiff, Nottingham, Birmingham and London.

After the announcement to commemorate the 25th year anniversary, one fan wrote: “IM SO BUYING TICKETS TO LIVERPOOL & MANCHESTER. London is also calling my name.”

A second added: "So happy !!! Need some S Club music back in my life!"
