H & Claire were a pop duo, consisting of former Steps members Claire Richards and Ian 'H' Watkins.
Following the split of Steps in December 2001, the pair formed a duo and released their debut single "DJ" on WEA Records in May 2002. Peaking at #1 on various club charts, the single debuted and peaked on the UK Singles chart at #3, spending one week in the Top 10. Their second single, "Half A Heart" followed in August 2002, peaking and debuting at #8 on the UK Singles chart, though it dropped to #29 in its second week of release and fell from the chart the following week. Their third and final single release, "All Out Of Love / Beauty & The Beast" was released in November 2002 and peaked at #10, spending 3 weeks on the UK Top 40.
Their debut album, "Another You Another Me", followed. However, it peaked at a low #58 in the UK, and WEA Records soon dropped the pair, leading them to go their separate ways in 2003.
For a short period around the time "DJ" was released, H & Claire presented the ITV Saturday Morning children's show SMTV Live.
