(2001-2002) Hear'Say had their 15 minutes of fame as a result of winning the ITV's "Popstars" reality TV talent show in February 2001. After an album and a few singles, Kym Marsh left the band in early 2002 for a solo career. She was replaced by Johnny Shentall, but he failed to inspire. The band split at the end of 2002 as a result of some spiteful negative publicity in the UK tabloid press.
The following year Myleene Klass started doing TV presenting and has released an album of classical piano music. She has also become a high profile model for Marks & Spencer.
