In 1992 and 1993, Peter Andre defied the odds by becoming a pop star in Australia when the last thing the country was looking for was a singing, dancing, muscle-flexing R&B pop hero. In 1995 he achieved the near-impossible again by repeating the same feat across Europe. In the UK alone he achieved three no.1 singles (the unforgettable 'Myserious Girl' along with 'Flava' and 'I Feel You') and a further 11 UK top 20 singles. After 1998, Andre retreated from the music industry until a 2004 appearance on the British TV jungle realty show 'I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here' which resulted in the no.3 smash hit 'Insania'. Since then Andre has continued to tour and release new material including a change of style with two swing albums. 2019 will mark 25 years in the business, performing his best loved hits from his early years to his most recent tracks that have reignited the hearts of the nation.

Founded in 1992, the group's name came from the postcode for Walthamstow. East 17 notched up eighteen Top 20 singles and four Top 10 albums, and were one of the most famous acts in the world during the early to mid 1990s. In contrast to the wholesome boy band image, East 17 were seen as a grittier and more 'real', blending rap and pop in songs such as 'House of Love' and 'Steam', and also tackled political issues with tracks like 'Let It Rain'. Their 1994 single 'Stay Another Day' remained at the top for five weeks and was also that year's Christmas Number 1, and is still a classic Christmas anthem. East 17 were Tony Mortimer, Brian Harvey, John Hendy and Terry Coldwell. The group continues today under the line-up of Terry Coldwell, Joe Livermore since 2019 and former Artful Dodger collaborator Robbie Craig since 2014.

Far from being the 'Popstar' rejects, Liberty X were the second band to emerge from the infamous TV show (after Hear'Say) and proved themselves to be a funky pop/dance RnB crossover outfit with genuine street credibility.
