Michelle McManus shares incredible throwback to baby-faced Ant and Dec on Pop Idol final 14 years ago

MICHELLE McManus thrilled her fans by posting an incredible throwback video with Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly during the Pop Idol 2003 final.

The Scottish singer won the show 14 years ago today and posted a clip online which showed the baby-faced TV presenters looking very fresh faced.


Michelle said of the clip: “So 14 years ago today I was standing on a stage, hoping and praying that @antanddec would call out my name.

“Thank you to every single person who picked up the phone that night, you literally changed my life forever. Thank you.”

In the clip, Ant looks dapper in a dark suit with a matching black tie while Dec appears to be embracing a more casual look with his shirt unbuttoned.

The star, who's married to Ali Astall, also rocked a messy hairstyle, with his locks teased into spikes all over his head.


Ant and Dec started their presenting career back in 1994 with CiTV’s Gimme 5.

Now the famous pair, who are both 42-years-old, are TV legends and front some of ITV’s biggest shows including I’m A Celebrity and Britain’s Got Talent.

Michelle meanwhile is making her musical comeback after joining three special choirs release a charity single.

Michelle teamed up with Britain’s Got Talent finalists Missing People Choir, the Parrs Wood High School choir — who performed at Ariana Grande’s One Love Manchester concert in June after the Manchester Arena bombing — and the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS choir, who beat Justin Bieber to the Christmas No1 in 2015.

They and nine other choirs, who have branded themselves Choirs With Purpose and total 1,400 singers, released a cover of Sir Paul McCartney's 1984 track We All Stand Together.

The Beatles icon gave the track his blessing and waived his royalties, meaning all profits from the song will be split equally between the 12 choirs for charity work.

A source told The Sun at the time: “Michelle returning to the top of the charts would be miraculous.

“But if a miracle’s ever going to happen, it’s at Christmas.

“Her song with the Choirs With Purpose is perfect for Yuletide — emotional with a message of goodwill. It would be the ultimate present for Michelle, and the choirs.”
