Will Young – Pop Idol
Before we had the X Factor, we had Pop Idol and the very first winner was Will Young back in 2002 – beating off Bradford boy Gareth Gates.
He released his first single, double A-side Evergreen/Anything Is Possible, and since then Will has gone from strength to strength. Anything Is Possible even bagged an Ivor Novello Award.
Will has released successful singles and albums, he’s had film and TV roles and he’s got a new single out right now called Echoes.
