A SINGER and nurse from Mayland will be starring in a new BBC singing competition this weekend.

Natalie Lomax, 32, also known as Natalie Cook, works as a community nurse in Burnham, and will be featuring on “All Together Now” on BBC One on Saturday night.

Hosted by comedian Rob Beckett, the show sees a range of talented singers take to the stage to perform in front of the 100 - a unique panel of music experts and performers from all over the UK.

Each act is hoping to get as many of the 100 singing along with their performance as they can, because the more of the 100 who join in, the higher the act scores.

At the end of the series, the act with the highest overall score will walk away with a cash prize of £50,000.

Natalie has been singing for a number of years, and made it to the boot camp stages of The X Factor last year, was invited to take part by the show’s producers.

She was also awarded Best Female Solo Artist at the South Essex Entertainment Awards 2018.

Natalie said: “It just sort of happened out of the bloom really. I’d taken part in X Factor last year, and then I was contacted by the BBC and they gave me the opportunity to take part in this one.

“It’s a really lovely show and I had such a great time taking part, it’s not like your average talent show where there are really obviously talented and not so talented acts.

“Everyone here has experience in the singing world, and all of the performers are wonderful.

This Saturday’s episode will be the third in the six-part series.

It will air at 7.15pm.
