Last night I spent the evening at the O2 for a charity talent contest called Newsroom's Got Talent. Our judges were Arlene Phillips, Anton du Beke and the one and only Christopher Biggins!!
I was part of the ITV London group which included: Lucrezia Millarini, Jamie Shepherd, Faye Barker, Sally Williams, Charlene White and Hannah Emerson-Thomas. We performed Cell Block Tango from the musical Chicago!
The nerves were pretty immense on the run up to showtime – just take a look at the view from the stage (picture below right) and imagine loads of people. Everyone worked their moves brilliantly BUT we were very shocked to hear our name read out in first place, a fantastic surprise!
If you fancy seeing how we all did you can watch our performance on the itv news website. Don't forget the very lovely Arlene Phillips is on The Morning Show tomorrow with her brand new book 'Dance to the Musicals', it'll be great to see her!
Speak soon, Will x
