I am delighted to say that Chesney has now registered!!! Questions and messages for Chesney are now welcome.....

Wikipedia:

Chesney Lee Hawkes (born 22 September 1971), is an English pop singer, songwriter, and occasional actor. He is best known for his 1991 single "The One and Only", which topped the charts in the UK and reached the Top 10 in the U.S.



Hawkes was born in Windsor, Berkshire, to Carol (née Dilworth) and Leonard Hawkes, who is of Irish descent, and attended Charters School in Sunningdale. Chesney was named after the singer and comedian, Chesney Allen. His father is the singer Len 'Chip' Hawkes, formerly with the 1960s band The Tremeloes. His mother is former actress/game show hostess, Carol Dilworth (who appeared in an episode of the 1960s version of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) called "For The Girl Who Has Everything"). Keely Hawkes, his sister, was the lead singer of '90s band Transister, and is currently a songwriter based in Los Angeles.



Hawkes' career began at 19, when he appeared as the title character in the film Buddy's Song. In March 1991, he released his biggest single "The One and Only," from the film's soundtrack. Written By Nik Kershaw, the song was later featured in the opening credits of Doc Hollywood (1991), starring Michael J. Fox; in the 2009 movie Moon, as the song Sam Rockwell wakes up to every morning; and again in the 2011 film Source Code (also directed by Moon director Duncan Jones) as the cell phone ringtone of Michelle Monaghan's character. The single spent five weeks at number one. He has released eight singles including "I'm a Man Not a Boy" and "Another Fine Mess".

In 1993, his single "What's Wrong With This Picture?" reached number 63 in the UK, and his 2002 collaboration with Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne, "Stay Away Baby Jane", reached number 74 in the UK Singles Chart.



Hawkes returned to the media's attention with his involvement in Channel 4's The Games in March 2005, in which he won a Bronze Medal. He also took part in the ITV programme Hit Me Baby One More Time in April that year. He released a single called "Another Fine Mess" in May 2005, it reached number 48; it was his biggest-selling single for over a decade. The following album of the same title featured fifteen songs written by Hawkes.

Hawkes was involved in a project called the Lexus Symphony Orchestra, a corporate promotion designed to showcase the quality of Lexus' in-car audio systems. Hawkes composed two original pieces of music performed by the London Symphony Orchestra for these events held at Castle Howard and Crystal Palace, in August 2007.



Hawkes was confirmed to appear in new musical, Can't Smile Without You (featuring songs of Barry Manilow). In the show, Hawkes plays the part of Tony Lowiman who falls in love with a girl called Mandy when he visits New York. Things take a turn for the worse when Tony is brutally attacked one night outside a club. The musical includes over 40 Barry Manilow songs. National tour started at the Liverpool Empire Theatre on 15 September 2008 prior to performances in the West End.

Hawkes appeared briefly in a cherry picker on Celebrity Big Brother (shown on 8 January 2009) on Channel Four. "The One and Only" was used as a cue to have contestants worship at a Chesney Hawkes shrine. While other contestants were required to be paparazzi who had to take photos of any celebrities that appear in the cherry picker which was raised above the house compound wall.



Entrepreneur Duncan Bannatyne is a fan and Hawkes performed as a surprise at his birthday party.

In January 2011, Hawkes performed at the live finale of Louie Spence's Showbusiness, which will be broadcast at the end of the current series.

During February and March 2011, he took part in the BBC series Let's Dance For Comic Relief.

In May 2011, Hawkes took part in the ITV series Sing If You Can.

Hi Chesney, it's great that you're here!

I have been around a while, long enough to have been a massive fan of the Tremeloes. How is your dad? Is he still working? When you see him please let him know that he has fans still asking after him!

I liked the Tremeloes too, but have to admit to being more a fan of your mum, she was lovely! She was on The Golden Shot with Bob Monkhouse? And I think she had a bit part in Cliff Richard's The Young Ones film.

Obviously you are still famous but it must have been tremendous to be one of the biggest stars in the country when One and Only was a hit.
Can you tell us any amusing stories about incidents with fans please?

We used to have hundreds of girls hanging out outside my parents house and mum sometimes let them come in to use the toilet. One girl stole a roll of toilet paper and sold it on strip by strip to the girls outside!
