Pop Idols Michelle McManus unrecognisable in glam snap 17 years after TV win

Many will remember this Scott for her beautiful voice after she soared to victory on Pop Idol back in 2003.

Fans quickly fell in love with Michelle McManus on the ITV show and is most fondly remembered for her signature red bob and statement singular yellow feather earring during the finale.

But it’s fair to say Michelle McManus looks world’s away from her TV days on the popular singing competition almost 20 years ago where she took the coveted title and pulled in a whopping 10.26 million votes at the time.

Now 41, the vocalist now sports her natural fiery red hair and continues to perform up and down the country as a happily married woman.

Since going on to be a TV and radio host, the singer originally swapped her tresses for a highlighted blonde bob before she opted for a much bolder look and regularly donned pink and purple hair.

She has also moved on from the noughties makeup looks and thrown herself into the world of glitz and glamour as she regularly shares pictures of herself on Instagram in sparkly ballgown with matching glittery makeup.

As we approach the run up to Christmas, Michelle is likely to mark the anniversary of her TV victory on Instagram as she has done in previous years with a touching post to her loyal legions of fans online.

Last year the loving wife shared a snap alongside Ant and Dec as she celebrated her win on stage that changed her life completely.

She penned: “17 years ago today [love heart emoji] #Allthistime #popidol #winner #grateful #luckiestgirlintheworld #thankyou.”

And her supportive fans soon flooded her comments page with a slew of congratulatory comments as they looked back on the momentous occasion all those years ago.

One fan wrote: “Aww great memories Michelle, voted for you loads of times” accompanied by a green love heart emoji.

Another agreed, adding: “Best version of oh holy night I've ever heard … you’re a star.”

A third chimed in with: “What no way! I remember watching this.”
