A FINALIST on Britain’s Got Talent will be teaching young drama students all she knows at a free workshop.

Bessie Curzens, from Portsmouth, finished third in the ITV talent show in 2007 with her brilliant renditions of songs from My Fair Lady and Mary Poppins.

Now the 17-year-old is starring in children’s show My Phone Genie on CITV and will soon hit the screen in the daytime drama Doctors.

She will be a guest teacher at the Youngstar TV and Film School, which is holding a free drama workshop tonight and next Friday at The Spring Arts and Heritage Centre in East Street, Havant.

Spaces are available for six to 17-year-olds but must be booked in advance.

To book your free workshop go to youngstar.tv or call (023) 8047 7717.
