Coronation St star Kym Marsh rose to fame first as a participant on 2001 UK reality show Popstars (based on the NZ format which created True Bliss)

The group formed were called Hear'Say and they achieved instant fame, breaking chart records with their debut single Pure and Simple and the album Popstars. However, Kym left Hear'Say early in 2002 after clashing with other group members, before joining the cast of Coronation St in 2006.

Take a step back with the Pure and Simple music video - Kym sings the opening lines.
