British pop singer, a member of the British pop band, STEPS. From the time they were selected from thousands of hopefuls in 1997, STEPS had single-handedly changed the shape of Brit-pop. After a long period of auditions, a whole lot of line-dancing, and six months of try-outs, the five best applicants were chosen for their skills in singing and dancing as well as having a fun attitude. Those five young, talented, hard-working and determined individuals are the members of STEPS: Lisa Scott-Lee, Ian Watkins (H), Claire Richards, Lee Latchford-Evans and Faye Tozer. STEPS has become a phenomenon, renowned for their easy to follow dance routines.

A sleek blonde with a cool fashion sense, Claire had a taste for performance from the time she played the lead in her school musical, "The Sound of Music." She got so good at Karaoke that she was barred from the local pub’s performances in order to give someone else a chance to win. A member of one of the busiest and hardest-working bands today, Clair has had time to present the programs "Electric Circus" and "CD: UK."

Richards' first child, Charlie, was born on 8 May 2007. Richards and long-time partner Reece Hill married on 1 November 2008. She gave birth to a girl named Daisy on 29 December 2009 at 7:13pm. Both children were born at Hillingdon.

After her Steps career she gained more than 4 stone (25 kg) in weight. Richards released a fitness DVD Five Step Fat Attack on 26 December 2008.
