I TALK TO Michelle McManus

"Pop Idol was the most incredible experience that changed the course of my life forever."

She won the hearts of the nation back in 2003 after following in the footsteps of Will Young by winning the second and eventual final series of Pop Idol. After an iconic winner's single (All This Time) and a top 3 debut album in the UK she went on to host The Hour in Scotland, performed for Pope Benedict XVI during his state visit and since 2013 has been performing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe
