Jayde tasted fame in the mid-90s as one half of the pop duo Silk and Steel when their 1995 hit Penetrate took the UK and Macedonia charts by storm. This sudden success inflated Jayde's ego beyond recognition and he surprised everyone by leaving his talented partner to pursue a solo career.

Nearly 20 years have passed and Jayde has been unable to replicate his early success. His celebrity status has all but diminished, whereas former partner Cherry Blossom enjoys international stardom. But with renewed interest from the local Peterborough press and the launch of a new talent show hosted by television favourite Shaun Williamson, is the time right for a comeback?
