Britain’s Got Talent Special!

27/04/12


Have they got the Talent to Beat Tarrant?  


 
To celebrate the amazing acts and premier performances of Britain’s Got Talent, familiar faces from past series will step into Chris Tarrant’s hotseat to try and win the magic million for their chosen charities.
 
First to take centre stage will be operatic singing star Paul Potts, winner of BGT in 2007. He’ll be teaming up with pop sensation Shaheen Jafargholi. Paul will be aiming to hit the jackpot again for Treat Trust Wales and Shaheen has chosen to support Teenage Cancer Trust. Will they be able to make a song for their favourite charities?
 
TREAT Trust Wales http://www.treattrust.org.uk was set up by Melanie Davies, who became a paraplegic aged 15 following an horrific motorbike accident. Mel has also successfully battled breast cancer diagnosed at the age of 36. Wishing to make life easier for those who are confronting similar life-changing experiences, Mel conceived the TREAT project whilst undergoing radiotherapy. TREAT (Treatment, Rehabilitation, Exercise And Therapy) is aiming to provide a state of the art rehabilitation centre to be built next to Morriston Hospital, Wales. There is only one other centre of its kind in the UK, called Aspire which is based in Stanmore, Middlesex. TREAT's centre will be the first of its kind in Wales and will service the needs of people from South and South West Wales and the South West of England area. 
 
Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for young people with cancer aged between 13 and 24. The charity builds specialist units within NHS hospitals, bringing young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in a place designed just for them.  The aim of the charity is that every young person with cancer will have access to this specialist support, no matter where they live.  Visit www.teenagecancertrust.org to help transform the lives of young people with cancer.  

Next in the spotlight will be dynamic dance duo Twist and Pulse, aka Ashley Glazebrook and Glen Murphy who dazzled the nation with their unique ‘streetomedy’ style. Competing on behalf of Dance Aid, Ashley said; “We’re well practiced as a team and we’ve been writing questions for each other in preparation. We’ve very high hopes of hitting the million!” Will pulses race under the barrage of questions from Chris Tarrant who they have specially nicknamed ‘Twist and Pulse G-Dad’?
 
Danceaid is a charity that uses the energy of dance to transform the lives of poor, orphaned, exploited and disabled children across the UK, Africa and Asia.  Through various dance initiatives the charity raises funds to provide small grants to the neediest of families in the UK, referred to them by social workers, health professionals and probation officers.  In Africa and Asia, the charity supports street children, children marginalised by disability and children orphaned by HIV/AIDS. The charity encourages people to host dance based events in order to raise money.  Check out www.danceaid.org www.facebook.com/danceaid and www.twitter.com/danceaidUK for more information.

Finally, father and son duo Demetrios Demetriou and Lagi Michalakis, otherwise known as Stavros Flatley, play for their chosen charity Walking with Giants. Demi commented on his involvement; “We’re very lucky to be in the position to take part in the show and help a great cause, I just need to become more decisive as I’m terrible at making decisions. Lagi will no doubt keep me in check.”

The Walking With Giants Foundation is a registered charity set up to enrich the lives of individuals and families affected by Primordial Dwarfism in the UK and around the world. Individuals affected by Primordial Dwarfism are some of the smallest people in world, especially within the MOPDII subtype. They face many barriers and hurdles in life (physically, medically and environmentally) especially as they live in a world that is not made for them. Visit www.walkingwithgiants.org for more information about Primordial Dwarfism.
 
Quiz master, Chris Tarrant, will be overseeing proceedings ensuring that participants are put to the test in order to scale the money tree. They’ve won over the nation but can they make it to the million milestone? 

 Tune into ITV1 on 6th May at 7.15pm!
