Frankie Goes to Hollywood

Frankie Goes to Hollywood (FGTH) was a UK dance-pop band that were extremely popular in the mid 1980s.

The Liverpool group was fronted by Holly Johnson, supported by Paul Rutherford, Peter Gill, Mark O'Toole and Brian Nash The group's debut single "Relax" was famously banned by the BBC while at number six in the charts, and subsequently topped the UK singles chart for five consecutive weeks, going on to enjoy prolonged chart success throughout 1984 and ultimately becoming the seventh best-selling UK single of all time .

Following the follow-up success of "Two Tribes" and "The Power of Love", FGTH became only the second act in the history of the UK charts to reach number one with their first three singles; the first being Gerry and the Pacemakers in 1964.
