On the radio

We were treated on Monday.  There was a pre-recorded interview aired on BBC Radio Lincolnshire, which you can catch ten minutes into this link. Available until Monday! http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/player/p00vrflm

He was also on with Patrick Kielty, who was standing in for Steve Wright, on BBC Radio 2, where he talked about Legally Blonde, especially those dogs!  He also dodged questions about Masterchef.

Gareth joins Masterchef

Gareth is joining this year’s Celebrity Masterchef.  The start date has not been confirmed yet, but it should be some time next month and will be on BBC2 at 6:30pm each week night for FIVE WEEKS.  That of course is for those who make it to the finals!

Gareth’s progress is inevitably top secret, but here is a photo of him waving a pan about and looking very serious with a very clean pinny.

Pop and musical theatre star Gareth Gates makes an appeal on behalf of the British Stammering Association, the UK’s national charity that offers support to adults, children and families who are affected by stammering.

The film features four-year-old Zachary, who suddenly developed a severe stammer just after his third birthday, making him so distressed he felt he could not speak anymore. But with the help of the British Stammering Association, Zachary got the help he needed through early intervention speech and language therapy. He is now back to the happy, confident boy he was before.

Liz and Gareth

Gareth popped into BBC Radio Leeds to have a One on One chat with Liz Green.  The interview lasted an hour, and covered a lot of Gareth’s background and career, from back when he was a choir boy at Bradford Cathedral, singing for the Queen through his pop career to his time in musicals.   Liz particularly loved Gareth in Les Misérables, and Loserville got a big old plug.

Gareth also picked some of his favourite songs to play.

The full interview with Liz (minus the music) is available on YouTube.
