I’m A Celebrity finalist Dean Gaffney will head to Fincham tomorrow night to judge the final round of the fourth annual Norfolk’s Got Talent competition.
The former EastEnders star and one of the favourites from the ITV reality show will have a Well-ard decision on his hands as he watches the ten finalists compete at the stunning Timbers Coutry Lodge.
Melody Rose, principal of Melody’s Academy of Dance, said: “The best year by far – it’s been very hard to choose the final ten. The ages varied from eight to over 50, with auditionees coming from across Lynn, Swaffham and Downham.
“It was a great turnout at the June auditions and a fantastic line up for the final. I honestly can’t pick a winner – good luck judges!”
Heading the judging panel for this year’s event is Dean Gaffney, ITV’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of here finalist who left one day before the live final in 2009 when there was a double eviction!
“It will be great to see Dean and he will be doing a meet-and-greet after the show.”
The actor trained at London’s Sylvia Young’s Theater School and Corona Theatres School before joining EastEnders in 1993.
He became the well-loved character of Robbie Jackson, the memorable brother of Bianca and Sonia.
Alongside Dean in the judging panel with be Joe Reed, 2013’s Norfolk’s Got Talent Winner, the singer-songwriter from Lynn, and the magnificent up-and-coming talent, Lemon, who is known as Ghetto Barbie on the gigging circuit and is breaking the mould from the normal UK pop acts with her 90s-infused hip-hop beats, cheeky lyrics and soulful vocals.
She is currently working with the biggest writers and producers, creating her own clothing line and has previously danced for the likes of Paloma Faith, Dizzee Rascal and Westlife.
Melody added: “We look forward to welcoming both Dean and Lemon to the judging panel. We’re excited to see Lemon perform on stage on the night and we are sure Dean’s decision on the winner will be Well-‘ard!”
