I’ve known S Club 7 singer Jon Lee for a few years now, ever since we co-presented a pilot travel programme in Brighton.
He’s one of the loveliest, most down-to-earth celebrities you’ll ever meet and I remember the crew getting rather annoyed at us because we couldn’t stop giggling.
This week I was thrilled for him as he unveiled his debut performance as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys in the West End - a job he’s wanted since he was a nipper.
The industry is so ruthless and difficult that, for most, a dream remains just that. So I’m delighted that Jon’s came true, he really deserves it.
I was also pleased to see that the other S Club members came along to support him. Made me reminisce about the ‘Don’t stop movin’ days.
