POP sensations S Club 7 are either not making enough money or simply enjoy meeting politicians. After hob-nobbing with shadow chancellor Michael Portillo at a recent launch for Tesco's Computers for Schools promotion, Bradley, Hannah, Jo, Jon, Paul, Rachel and Tina popped up again this week with schools minister Estelle Morris at EMI's Abbey Road studios.

The band is helping secondary students fom Greenfield community and arts college in County Durham to record "Count on Me", a song to promote Maths Year 2000. Sadly, Estelle did not contribute vocals to the track pleading an inability to sing; more surprisingly, perhaps, due to "contractual obligations", neither did S Club 7.

The song is expected to make its debut on the site on Number Day - December 5.
