Maldon gay dad teams up with Barrymore to launch new TV show

First published in News

Presenter Michael Barrymore is teaming up with one of Maldon’s well-known personalities to launch a new TV show.

Barrie Drewitt-Barlow, one of Britain’s first gay fathers, will be co-hosting a new talent show, Stealing The Limelight, alongside the comedian and presenter.

The show is open to people with talents of any kind, from singing, to poetry, to art or presenting.

Barrie said: “We are holding auditions all up and down the country for people to come with their talents and show us what they can do.

“It’s different as people in the studio, people at home and the crew can all vote.

Essex audition dates for the show are October 27 and 28 at Kings Oak Hotel, Paul’s Nursery Road, High Beach, Essex, IG10 4AE.

Sounds absolutely awful, terrible old-hat presenters desperate to be on the telly, and will no doubt attract extremely sad untalented idiots. It will be a big hit!

This is one program I will certainly not be watching. Michael Barrymore and these other two attention seeking wannabbees makes for the most cringe worthy program ever.
