Myleene Klass - Biography
Musician and TV presenter
Famous for: Becoming a household name after winning the first ever TV talent show Popstars
Though Norfolk-born beauty Myleene Klass rose to fame as one fifth of reality TV band Hear'Say, she had experience of the showbiz world before joining the band. A talented musician - the last of six generations of classically trained artists - she had provided backing vocals for the likes of Cliff Richard, Robbie Williams and KD Lang, and appeared on stage in the West End in Miss Saigon. During her pop stint she contributed to four UK top ten singles, two of them number ones, before Hear'Say split in 2003. After going solo Myleene signed a five-album deal with a classical music label and has branched out into presenting, acting and - after an appearance on reality TV show I'm A Celebrity drew attention to her bikini-perfect body - into modelling. While still with Hear'Say the London-based star found love with bodyguard Graham Quinn, a member of the band's security team. The couple delayed their wedding, which had been planned for September 2007, after announcing that Myleene was expecting a baby. Daughter Ava arrived three weeks early on August 16.
