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

  • Monarch goes bust +

    Monarch airlines have gone out of business after nearly 50 years of trading - very sad news. 2,750 staff are now without a job and 110,000 Monarch customers are abroad at the moment - but ALL will be flown back to the UK more or less at the same time of their original planned return.
  • Driving ban lifted +

    After a 60 year long ban, women will be allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia. A royal decree issued by King Salman should be in place by June 2018. The country was mocked after a picture appeared with an all female aircrew landing a jet - even though none would be allowed to drive a car!
  • All about the shoes +

    Jimmy Choo - the luxury British shoe company has been sold to American rival Michael Korrs, for nearly £900 million. Jimmy Choo was founded be a Malaysian designer in the 1990's and shot to prominence after being featured in the hot TV show Sex and the City
  • British passports +

    The UK voted Brexit yet it seems ludicrous that a French or German company may win the contract to produce British passports after 2019! One Tory MP is outraged stating that British passports should be manufactured in Britain, in a British factory employing British people - and not many would disagree with that.
  • Worse airport +

    Luton Airport has been voted Britain's worse airport in a survey conducted by "Which?" again. The airport has retained the title for the last 5 years and in response a spokesman said "We're disappointed"!
  • Vanilla prices +

    The price of vanilla pods have surged following a cyclone hitting the tropical island of Madagascar - which produces half of the world's supply. A kilo cost £250 prior to the cyclone but now more likely to fetch around £650. Vanilla is the most popular ice cream flavour and because of the shortage, you may find it a challenge to find supplies in shops.
