She’s better known as a soap star these days, but Kym Marsh first arrived on the scene as one fifth of the new manufactured group ‘Hear’ Say after competing  in the original singing competition show, Popstars.

The 42-year-old singer turned actress has been in the limelight for over 20 years now and it doesn’t look like she’s going anywhere soon.  She’s been a regular face on Coronation Street playing fiesty Michelle Connor for 12 years and still wows the paparazzi on the red carpet.
