S Club 7s Jo O’Meara rushed into surgery after worrying fans with hospital dash

S Club 7 star Jo O’Meara has offered fans a health update after being rushed to hospital – explaining that she is still in “unbearable” pain.

The singer was initially hospitalised with four “bulging” discs in her back, along with a “bad case of sciatica” which left her in “horrendous” agony and needing spinal blockers.

Now Jo has expressed that she is “devastated” at having to cancel various appearances amid her health battle, telling fans in a candid Instagram update: “I am so devastated and sorry to have to announce that I will not be able to attend @fifepride on Saturday.

“As you may well know I have had some health issues with my back recently, and it has resulted in me needing surgery to remove the disc and fix the problem.

“The pain has been unbearable and I have been advised surgery is now my only option and being told this is something that needs doing urgently to prevent further damage to my back.”

The star added: “So I will be going in for the procedure tomorrow (September 15).

“I am beyond upset to be missing out on such a special day and I am so so sorry. I hope you all understand that this decision was very hard, but I must put my health first at this time.

“Sending you all so much love and please make sure to Reach for those Stars! Lots of love, Jo.”

Her fans soon rushed to support Jo in the comments, with GB News star Eammonn Holmes writing: “Dear Jo, I feel your pain. I am in a similar position. We’ll be swapping notes. Get well soon xxx”.

Another fan added: “I wish you a speedy recovery Jo and a safe operation.”

“Wishing you well,” someone else posted, while a fourth wrote: “Ah babes backs are the worst! Hope it goes well, lots of love.”

“Good luck Jo. I know you really wanted to do @fifepride. Sometimes decisions are taken out of our hands. I hope you get well soon,” someone else said.
