She had to witness the death of her father which was a hard time during her life. But, she moved forward with her life anyways as she began working on an interesting project on the Zenith. She went on to work for Century and the Galaxy. It is when she started with these projects that she started facing problems and understanding the challenges that come along with the rewards. However, at the end of the day, she learned a lot which helped her to immensely develop herself as a solid singer.
Her major breakthrough came in her career when she was offered to be the star of “The Cruise”. This was a trending show of the time which had an estimated 14 million viewers on its shows. After she started to appear in the show, she became a fan favorite of many and hence her popularity reached new levels that were previously only dreamed by her.
Because of popular demand, as her fame was at the peak of the time, her wedding was even televised by the BBC in 1998. The Cruise opened up her career to a lot of new opportunities. She became a guest presenter for BBC’s National Lottery and also signed a major record label deal of the time. With their association, her self-titled debut album was released which became number 1 in the UK Albums chart. By this time, she had become a household name and following her success, she even wrote her autobiography called Follow Your Dreams.
She has also made her name in television through the success of the show called “Loose Women”. The day time show was a big success and Jane spent a lot of time on this show which she was a part of for more than 10 years.
