Eighties pop icon unrecognisable 43 years after bitter band split, fake engagement and reality TV makeover | The Sun

THEREZA Bazar was best known for being part of huge music groups in the 70s and 80s.

Originally in Guys 'n' Dolls and then in the split-off duo Dollar, she achieved mainstream success in the charts.

Thereza, 68, regularly takes to her social media account to give updates to her fans.

She gives snapshots of her life on the road as she promotes her gigs whilst taking full advantage of the nostalgia boom whilst rehashing some of her biggest 80's hits.

Her iconic hairstyle which was typical for the decade has now been replaced by long blonde locks, but she still looks graceful as ever.

The star first found success in the 70's as a late teen when she was part of the group Guys 'n' Dolls.

They scored a hit in 1975 with There's A Whole Lot of Lovin' which was followed by a period of success in the charts.

However she and her fellow bandmate David Van Day, who was her then-boyfriend, felt disillusioned with the group.

In 1977, they departed the band to form their own group named Dollar.

Together they stormed the charts with several hit songs which included Shooting Star (1978) and Love's Gotta Hold on Me (1979).

Their success continued into the eighties which included tracks such as Mirror Mirror in 1981 and Give Me Back My Heart in 1982.

Their relationship became strained and David first quit the group in February 1983 during a promotional trip to Japan.

Neither of the duo gained the same success as solo artists and so they decided to reform in 1986.

In 1987 they had a global hit with Oh L'amour which hit the top ten charts across Europe.

However, past ill-feelings soon came back to light as they attempted to follow up on their hit.

Although they released It's Nature's Way, one of the tracks producers Phil Harding described the recording sessions as "strained."

He said: "They were quite fragile sessions … I think they were fairly desperate [for a hit], especially Thereza."

The single was to be the groups last release as it flopped in the charts, which further delayed work on their fourth possible album.

In 1988, the pair split yet again and Teresa decided to leave the music industry behind her.

They duo didn't reform again until the early 2000's, when they competed in the TV show, Reborn in the USA.

However, after a highly publicised row with the UK's 1993 Eurovision entry Sonia, they were the first act to be voted off the show.

Later in 2008, the pair reunited with the other members of Guys 'n' Dolls for several TV appearances in Europe.

This is before the duo took part in a makeover show with her ex-partner called Pop Goes the Band, which aired on Living TV in February 2009.
