|Emma & Debbie both looking radiant on their special day|
The phenomenal pair are highly regarded by both fellow entertainers and their legion of fans - which was more than evident when they got married in September. Their special day was shared by over 200 guests - many of them flying in especially for the event.
I met up with the girls at The Peppermill for a drink and chat, a favourite of theirs and located just before Villamar camping on the road heading out of Benidorm.
Originally from Bradford, Debbie has now been living in Benidorm for 9 years. She was a solo act, performing under the name "Deb on Air", a name which originated from her hairstyle at the time she explained - straight up with plenty of gel so that it looked like it was standing on air! She was performing at Hero´s Bar in La Cala and it was there that she met Emma, who was working as a barmaid. Emma only planned on staying for 3 months, then going back to Sheffield, but 8 years on the pair are happily settled here.

As well as performing 12 shows per week as a duo, Emma also does various solo acts - Celine Dion, Diva´s Show and a new Whitney Houston tribute. They are also in the process of forming a new group, teaming up with Nick Baker to become "De-Toppers", a non-stop upbeat high energy dance classics show. Meanwhile, Debbie runs her own production company and being a particularly creative person it comes as no surprise that she is also an extremely talented artist, specialising in abstract paintings. She is looking to display them in a gallery or exhibition - I am sure that there will be plenty of interest.

They are both thoroughly looking forward to Christmas - but will be working throughout. They are star billing on New Years Eve at The Tropical, and will be welcoming in 2014 with a brand new medley of songs which they are putting together. They are on from 11pm until 12.30am but get there early as I am sure it will be packed out. It certainly comes as no surprise that the pair were voted the best entertainers in Benidorm by Cool fm listeners - if you haven´t had the pleasure yet then you are certainly missing out!
