Trust Thamesmead can confirm ex Grange Hill and EastEnders actress, pop sensation and BBC's Eurovision: Your Decision runner up, Michelle Gayle, will be co-hosting and sitting on the panel of judges at this year's T Factor audition on Saturday 5 April and at the final, which is taking place on Wednesday 14 May.
“Who better to give advice than Michelle Gayle?” said Trust Thamesmead's Marketing and Communications Officer Julia Hickson, “Nerves will be running high and as most of you will know, Michelle recently performed Woo (U Make Me) to an audience of millions on BBC's Eurovision: Your Decision, so she will be able to pass on some handy tips to help contestants control their nerves.
“Also, by Michelle appearing at The T Factor, it will show contestants that it is the taking part, not the winning that counts.
“We are looking forward to introducing Michelle to Thamesmead, not only at The T Factor but at this year's Trust Thamesmead Summer Festival too.”
