Cast your mind back to Pop Idol... the Simon Fuller show which ran on ITV from 2001 until 2003.

The reality TV talent show produced the likes of Will Young and Gareth Gates, as well as the winner of the second series, Michelle McManus.

Since that time she's furthermore been involved in the likes of pantomimes and TV presenting, while still dipping her toes occasionally into music and singing.

The Scottish star had an amazing voice and was hugely popular in the immediate years following her high-profile victory. Indeed, she went on to have a No.1 album and a No.1 single in early 2004.

Michelle recently got married - and she's currently on honeymoon very much living her best life.

Now aged 37, she looked fab when last month she wed boyf Jeff Nimmo in the Scottish Highlands following a two-year romance.

The pair are now in the Maldives, lounging around on the beach and sipping cocktails.

After meeting at a Scotland Vs Germany soccer match, Michelle and Jeff got engaged during a break in Tenerife in May 2016. Afterwards she told The Daily Record that she was delira. "I’ve never been happier. I’m walking on air.

"It’s all because I’ve met a really nice guy and we are getting married.

"I think deep down I wondered if it was ever going to happen to me.

"Jeff is my first proper ­boyfriend. Up until I met him, I had gone my entire life having never met the right guy. I ­suppose the only upshot of this is I’ve never had my heart broken.

"I have dated guys in the past but either I have not ­fancied them enough or they haven’t fancied me but with Jeff it has been different."

For her hen party she came to Ireland with 16 of her nearest and dearest - holding her bash in Kilkenny after "months" of planning.

Afterwards she called it the "ultimate 24hour party in Ireland where the single aim was for me to wake up with a baby in my wardrobe and a tiger in my bathroom".

She continued in Glasgow's Evening Times: "After my weekend away I'm going to stick to the strict code of silence and say what goes on hen do tour, stays on hen do tour."
