One True Voice's Jamie Shaw unrecognisable 20 years after Popstars: The Rivals | The Sun

JAMIE Shaw burst onto the scene in the early noughties as a fresh faced singer on Popstars: The Rivals.

The then-young star's band One True Voice famously went head to head with Girls Aloud that year for the coveted Christmas number one.

Their single Sacred Trust was beaten into number two by the girl group's debut smash Sound of the Underground, which would propel its members Cheryl, Kimberley Walsh, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts and the late Sarah Harding into pop music's elite.

The loss set the tone for the lads' ill-fated attempt at pop stardom as the group called it a day a year later without having released an album.

One True Voice – also made up Anton Gordon, Matt Johnson, Keith Semple, and Daniel Pearce – disbanded in 2003, but that didn't stop them from pursuing success in the charts.

Jamie threw himself into a solo career after OTV split.

His most notable achievement coming in 2006 when he supported US megastars the Backstreet Boys on tour in the UK.

The father-of-one swapped music for TV in 2014 when he became an executive publicity assistant for the BBC's Doctor Who.

He married his wife Daniella in Santorini three years ago and his Instagram page is full of sweet snaps of his young family.

Jamie also posted a tribute to Sarah Harding, who passed away from cancer last year.
