I had been wondering about Mika. Didn't know about this terrible accident.

Where are Natasha and David Beddingfield these days?
Natasha performed on Dancing With The Stars a few weeks back

Trinny & Susanna - they were everywhere about 5 years ago.
Dread to think how much ITV paid these two, they handed them a massive 'exclusive' deal, when it was obvious to everybody that the viewers were already tired of their one-dimensional act. Looking at Wikipedia they seem to have done very little since 2007/2008, and were last seen in a 'online series' in 2010...which basically is code word for 'not even one of the many satellite channels will give us a gig, so here we are on a webcam'

Her career seems to have been totally mis-manged. If I remember things correctly she released an album in the UK in 2006/2007...the critical opinion was mixed, so she took the good songs from it and added a few more and changed the title and released it America only...where it was a modest hit.

Since then she's stayed over there and had a few more minor hits, but has completely ignored her home market, which is the 2nd or 3rd biggest music market in the world

on a similar theme, Joss Stone went to America as a teenager from the West Country, came back with a comedy accent...and has been anonymous ever since.

I remember him from 999, which was nearly as bad as crimewatch for nightmares!

A lot of the cast from TTIAO. Until I saw Nick Hancock on Breakout I hadn't seen him in years. The tall bald buy. The Rory chap. Nigel from Pop Idol. Pete Waterman. The blonde woman - Nicky? Nadia Swalha. Martin kemp.

She will most probably guest star in the new Dallas series..Keep eyes peeled
Talking of Dallas, the careers of Victoria Principal, Charlene 'poison dwarf' Tilton and Linda Gray all launched and disappeared with that show. I'd loved to have wrestled little Charlene in her hey day. Such a shame!!

Nadia often stands-in for Lorraine Kelly. Does others things as well. She's on TV all the time!

Whether or not he's a lovely chap in real life, John McCririck came across as totally unlikeable with some questionable personal hygene habits in Big Brother and Wife Swap.
I'm guessing that accounts for the cliff-fall in TV appearances.

From Wikipedia:

From the 28 November to the 11 December 2010, Grantham appeared as Ebenezer Scrooge in the Lincoln Theatre Royals performance of A Christmas Carol. He portrayed the main character John in the Bulgarian TV series The English Neighbour, based on the novel of the same name.

He narates Pineapple Dance Studios and his dead pan style was brilliant for it.
