Hayley Evetts (born 4 March 1976 in Birmingham, England) is an English singer, TV presenter and stage actor who rose to fame on the ITV talent show Pop Idol.


Evetts first came to the attention of the public in 2001 when she appeared on Popstars, the TV show that launched Hear'Say and Liberty X. After failing to make either of the groups, later in that year she returned and auditioned for the first series of Pop Idol. She made the final 10 along with Will Young, Gareth Gates and Darius Danesh, eventually coming fifth. The following year, Evetts presented Cruel Holiday for Sky TV before briefly appearing in Coronation Street as Eve. She also presented Popstars: The Rivals Extra on ITV2 alongside Dane Bowers. In 2003, she won the role of Sandy in Grease the Musical along with Jonathan Wilkes who played Danny. In 2011, she independently released a single, "Waste My Time". In 2012, Evetts successfully auditioned at the Manchester auditions of The X Factor and made it through to bootcamp,[1] but failed to progress to judges' houses.[2][3][4]
