A 1990s pop star has swapped musical success and teamed up with talent judge Simon Cowell to pursue a career as a psychic medium.

Allison Jordan, 51, was part of one of the biggest British pop groups of the decade – Cappella.

At the age of 19, Allison gained fame after taking part in a talent competition on the BBC1 TV show That’s Life!, hosted by Esther Ranson, in 1992.

She won the competition, which was decided by a public telephone vote, and the competition prize was a recording contract.

The ’90s star signed a record deal with BMG to work with producers Nigel Wright and Simon Cowell.

Their first single “Boy From New York City” reached number 21 in the UK charts.

After the success of her first single, she left BMG.

Three years later, she became the front woman and singer of Cappella in 1995 following the departure of Kelly Overett.

That year, the band’s comeback single Tell Me the Way reached number 17 in the UK.

After enjoying a few years of stardom, Allison decided to pack up and return to England.

She then withdrew from the music scene to look after her two children with her husband Stephen Hedger.

In 2004, she founded a monthly publication called The Paranormal News.

Allison then changed her name to Cloé Hedger and now works as a psychic medium.

The former star owns her own shop and reads tarot cards, a hobby she had during her time in the band.
