BGT banner with filmcrewYesterday afternoon the first of a number of scheduled auditions took place here in Benidorm, looking for who may be the next potential winner of “Britain’s Got Talent 2018”, which is broadcast on national television! Teams are here in the resort, having arrived on Tuesday afternoon, to record acts to take back to London for the production crew to view.


One VisionThis year the nations’ favourite talent show, broadcast on ITV is casting it’s net further afield in its search for talent – and they couldn’t have chosen a better place. Traditionally teams search across the UK but for the very first time ever they have come abroad and Benidorm was chosen, in part due to it’s high concentration of British expats.


Chrissy RockSinatra’s was the first venue and many popular faces and amazing acts from the entertainment circuit turned out – all supporting one other. Even Crissy Rock - who many remember from her stint on the Benidorm series was in the audience, recording Paul Chunkz Devlin doing his Roy Orbison number.

Rob Orb and meOthers that turned out included Sian Payne, Danny Tetley, John-Paul & Ash, One Vision, Lorna Gibbs on sax, Aisha Nicole Speirs and Lizzy G… giving it their all. Afterwards they all did a quick interview to the camera, giving their name and details about themselves before handed a flyer which said that any successful candidates would be contacted by February. This afternoon the crew will be at Voices and on Friday at The Showboat for scheduled auditions.
Lorna GibbHowever, if you think you have got something special – you could be a resident or even on holiday, then get yourself down to Sinatra’s this Sunday, July 23, between 1aam and 4pm for an open audition. You can be a singer, comedian, drag act or have some other unusual talent – anything goes!

Boy ZoneOver the last eleven series there have been a variety of winners from singer Paul Potts, who was the first ever winner back in 2007 to dance troupe Diversity in 2009, Ashley and Pudsey in 2012 and the current winner, the incredibly talented pianist Tokio Myers. Many of the winners – and even runners up, have gone on to have amazing careers. Who can ever forget Susan Boyle? She didn’t win but still gone on to sell more than 23 million records worldwide.
So what are you waiting for - all you need is something special to show and determination… and you’ll never know where it might take you!

News Snippets

  • Learner drivers +

    From next year learner drivers will be allowed on UK motorways - but only with an approved driving instructor and in a dual-control car. A survey conducted on newly qualified drivers revealed that many avoid motorways out of fear and that this will help them and also teach them the correct way to navigate the often fast paced traffic and how to exit correctly.
  • Xmas shop opens! +

    Selfridges in London have opened their Christmas shop .... yes, on August 1- in the middle of the summer! It is nearly five months before Christmas but the department store claim that there is a demand from overseas customers, visiting London over the summer. Phase 2 will open at the beginning of September, which will see the full range of over 130,000 products on sale.
  • Unusual Kit Kat flavours +

    Nestle are opening a factory in Japan to keep up with demand for exotic flavours of Kit Kat. Around 30 varieties have been introduced there including wasabi, soy sauce, green tea, custard pudding & ginger and sake rice wine. But you'll be coughing up substantially more than you do in the UK - these alternative ones cost around $13!
  • Card fee racket +

    From next January, rip off card fees imposed by many airlines and shops are to be banned - and also include American Express, Apple Pay and Paypal transactions. It will hit local authorities such as DVLA, who charge a £2,50 flat fee to use a credit card, which in 2010 generated an estimated £473 million! Currently Flybe charges 3%, Swinton Insurance 2.5% and Ryanair 2%
  • Parents be warned! +

    Schools across England & Wales will be issuing fines to parents of children who are persistently late for school. This follows on from fines issued for unauthorised absences such as taking holidays during term time. Some have already introduced the scheme, which offer a 50% discount if paid promptly otherwise doubled then prosecution could follow.
  • BA fees +

    British Airways - once dubbed Britain's favourite airline have enraged travelers by following in the footsteps of the low cost carriers. In order to guarantee sitting together, which includes families with children, customers are having to pay for seats - £7 for short and £20 for long haul flights. They have already done away with free refreshments... maybe they are having to claw back the millions it cost when the complete BA system failed recently!
