[dropcap size=small]W[/dropcap]hen I first saw it, I assumed it was just an old cover. Rachel Stevens? On the cover of a magazine? In 2014? Nay, this could only be fan-fiction sprung from my mind in the early morning.

But then I saw it: “July 2014.”

It happened.

It’s real.

She said never again, but here she is (REFERENCE): Rachel Fucking Stevens — S Club 7 alum, fancy-footed Strictly Come Dancing legend and the elusive chanteuse behind Funky Dory and Come And Get It, one of the Top 10 pop records of all time — has been named FHM‘s Sexiest Woman Of All Time, and she reigns supreme on the cover this month.

SO GOOD, INDEED.

No, but really: She looks absolutely STUNNING.

What did the singer behind “Je M’Apelle” have to say about the hono(u)r? “To win this award feels absolutely amazing. I’ve worked with FHM for the past decade and a half. I feel such a strong bond to the magazine and it’s so flattering to think that people think of me that way. It’s brilliant.” Brilliant, yes — but not quite as brilliant as “Crazy Boys.”

To promote the achievement, Queen Stevens went on Lorraine and talked about her pregnancy, her bebes — and, thank God — the tiniest bit about music — in the shape of a S Club 7 reunion. “We’re always texting and tweeting,” she says, confirming that she would “possibly” like to reunite and that “it would be fun.” Fun, yes — but not quite as fun as “Funny How.”

Then, everything got a bit dark: Rachel revealed that she’s got a couple of presenting gigs in the works, would love to be a judge on X Factor, and that she’s been working on “a design project.” Fashion. She’s going Beckham on us. SOS.

Regardless, nothing’s better than the fact that Rachel Stevens is on the cover of a magazine in 2014. Let us celebrate — and come and get it once more.
