SClub's Tina dresses down for premiere

S Club star Tina Barrett drew gasps from the crowd at the premiere of the band’s new movie when she turned up in a barely-there dress.

The brunette made her dramatic entrance in a stunning red dress by designer Scott Henshall.

The floor-length gown consisted of only a wisp of chiffon held together with gold clasps and was kept in place with the aid of some strategic sticky tape.

Tina, 26, shivered in the cold outside the Warner cinema in London’s Leicester Square last night.

“I’m so cold,” she admitted, adding “it took me 15 minutes to get into this dress because it’s so tricky to wear.”

S Club were out for the premiere of Seeing Double, which marks their movie debut.

Set in Spain and LA, the plot revolves around a mad scientist who creates evil clones of the band in a bid to take over the world.

The group – Tina, Hannah Speritt, 22, Jo O’Meara, 23, Rachel Stevens, 24, Jon Lee, 20 and Bradley McKintosh, 21 – were recently rumoured to be on the verge of a split.

Last night they put on a united front and Rachel, there with actor fiance Jeremy Edwards, insisted there were no plans to break up.

But when Tina was asked if the group plan to stay together, she replied: “We’re here for now.”

Other stars at the premiere included Emma Bunton, Will Young and S Club Juniors.

Gareth Gates, who has a small role in the film, joined S Club on a 20-minute walkabout to greet the 1,500 screaming fans outside the cinema.

Also there was Paul Cattermole, who left the group after five years to start up a rock band.
