Roly-Poly Pop Idol loser Michelle McManus has been uncovered on Berwick beach with a makeshift market stall.
The rotund reality show 'star' shot to fame in the 2003 edition of the popular Simon Cowell show with stunning renditions of songs by Fats Domino and Pavorotti among others.
However she now is reduced to selling her wares on the shore to make ends meet.
Eye-witness Steve Carolgees commented: 'I always walk my dog every morning and saw this lady with an assortment of shells and general tat. I couldn't believe my eyes when I looked up and saw her unmistakable dinner lady arms. I recognised her immediately and even told Brutus (his dog) who just barked'.
The sad downfall of McManus follows the recent news of Gareth Gates groping Grannies grabbing Gareth's girth.
