(Caroline) Shelley Preston (born May 14, 1964 in Hillingdon, London, England), is a professional singer, best known as the replacement for Jay Aston in the 1980s pop group Bucks Fizz.
She started singing in her local Sunday School choir from 4 years of age. While she was still at school, she sang with the Bournemouth Operatic Society. She worked as a singer at a hotel nightclub in Sri Lanka for six months before being selected at a London audition to be the new member of Bucks Fizz. [1]

Shelley was introduced as the new member of Bucks Fizz to millions of viewers on the BBC TV prime-time chat show Wogan, hosted by Terry Wogan.[2] She performed with the band from 1985 to 1990.
By the time Preston had joined the group, Bucks Fizz were on a downward slide in the charts and although all of the singles released with her made the UK charts, only “New Beginning (Mamba Seyra)” had any real success, reaching the top 10 in Summer 1986.[3]

After leaving Bucks Fizz in 1990, Preston recorded some tracks with PWL with view to becoming a solo star, 7 tracks were recorded, none of which have ever been released.

Shelley then made a career as a backing vocalist, touring and appearing with Jason Donovan,
INXS, Brian May, Michael Bolton, Go West, Beverley Craven, Alexander O’Neal, Luther Vandross, Errol Brown and Belinda Carlisle (she still currently performs with Carlisle). During the 1990s she was also a member of the bands Fret Monkey and Hard Candy.[5]
