Nichola Martin is Andy Hill's ex-wife and was co-founder of the group Bucks Fizz, putting them together for Eurovision. She also co-wrote many of the groups songs.
Nichola appeared in a group called Nick and Nichola in the early Seventies and they made at least two records in 1970 and 1971. Apparently she hired a hall and held auditions to find Nick saying she had a recording contract in the hope that she'd get someone good by making it look professional. Then she rehearsed with him for weeks before she broke the news that she didn't have any contract, no work at all! He stayed with her and they were signed up by Eve Taylor who managed lots of big names at that time.
Nichola then went on to a group called Love Together, a five piece group with two girls and three guys. They made three records and also appear on the 'Saturday Scene' albyum with Sally James!
In the late Seventies Nichola apeared with Jill Shirley (who later became Bucks Fizz's manager) and Steve Glen in a group called Rags who made at least five or six records and made regular TV appearances, most notably on Crackerjack. Steve later went on to release some solo records and co-write a bit for Bucks Fizz too! Rags entered 'A song for Europe' with their song 'Promises, Promises'.
In the 1981 Song for Europe, Nichola appeared with Andy, Ian Bairnson and Graham Broad as Paris (but you can ready about them on a seperate page!).
