This isn’t the first time she’s hit the headlines…
A new channel, two new coaches and the best talent yet – The Voice returned with a bang last weekend and brought with it the best-named contestant ever.
Truly Ford, 22, blew coach Gavin Rossdale away with her striking vocals, but she had another surprise following the performance: her real name.
‘My full name is Truly Scrumptious Claire Ford,’ she told Gavin and his fellow coaches, Jennifer Hudson, Will.i.am and Tom Jones.
Now it’s been revealed that this isn’t Truly’s first brush with fame, and that she’s a former Page 3 girl. Kind of.
In August 1994 she and her mum Nicky Ford ended up in The Sun because of the unique name! Appearing on ‘Page 3 Lovely’, the headline read: ‘She’s Truly Scrumptious – Mum names girl after Chitty star.’
And, in case you needed more of an explanation behind Nicky’s choice of the unusual name for her daughter, Truly told Gavin and co: ‘My mum was delusional and she had just watched Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and thought it was a good name but it is actually a terrible name. People sing Truly Scrumptious to me every day.’
Truly performed a rendition of Dakota by The Stereophonics, with Gavin, 51, and 76-year-old Sir Tom both attempting to get her on their teams.
But, despite not pushing his button, even Will told her: ‘If I would’ve known your name and you didn’t sing, I would’ve turned.’ We’re not sure if that’s a compliment or not…
In the end, Truly went for Gavin – and his seriously cute smile – and we can’t say we blame her.
