Where do I recognise her from?
Once upon a time before she was an actress, Hannah was a singer in 2000’s pop group S Club 7!
Long before she stepped foot in Albert Square she was touring the world alongside her bandmates John, Jo, Bradley, Rachel, Tina and Paul.
The group formed in 1998 and had four UK number-one singles and a UK number-one album before disbanding five years later in 2003.
Is she on Instagram?
You can find Hannah on Instagram at @hannahspearitt where she has 64.4k followers.
She mostly uploads pics of her daily life, which includes her super cute baby Téa and even cuter dog Lola!
