  1. That's a great video Heather. Thanks for finding it. I don't remember Gareth playing the guitar as much as that when I saw the show.

  3. Looking at the bag in this picture, could it possibly be Sainsbury's
  4. Forgot to ask Doris. Did Gareth sing very much and what did he sing?
  5. Thank you so much for telling us about the Panto Doris. Been wondering if anyone would be able to get there and give us a review. . Sounds like it was a great show. Wish I could get to one of them. Glad you both enjoyed it.
  6. I agree with you Khelda. Not a huge fan of the pics Gareth has on his twitter or facebook now. Not rally into too much muscle. But having said that his young fans think they're great.
  7. Just had to post this lovely picture of Gareth in here. Think its one of the best pictures I've seen of Gareth.
  8. He promotes everything and everyone else more than he does his own career. Time he started to put himself first I think.

  12. Just announced today Gareth Gates 1 hr · Hi Guys Gareth Is doing Panto again this year at Wolverhampton , here's the press release! Gareth HQ x ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- WOLVERHAMPTON GRAND THEATRE PRESS RELEASE GARETH GATES TO STAR IN JACK AND THE BEANSTALK! LISA RILEY, IAN ADAMS, DOREEN TIPTON AND ADAM C BOOTH RETURN DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND. Today, Wolverhampton Grand Theatre revealed the first casting announcement for the 2017/18 pantomime. Gareth Gates will star as Jack in a giant new production of JACK AND THE BEANSTALK. Returning due to popular demand are Lisa Riley as the Fairy, Ian Adams will return as dame playing Dame Trott, Black Country favourite Doreen Tipton will appear and Adam C Booth plays the role of Jack’s brother Simple Simon. Gareth Gates rose to stardom in 2002 as runner-up in the UK’s first Pop Idol. In a phenomenal career which followed he has sold more than 3.5 million records in the UK, released three albums and had four UK number one singles. Alongside his pop career Gareth has been seen on ITV1’s Dancing on Ice and The Big Reunion 2014 for ITV. Gareth’s theatre career has seen him play the role of Marius in the 25th anniversary tour of Les Misérables for Sir Cameron Mackintosh, in Loserville at West Yorkshire Playhouse and the UK tours of Legally Blonde and Boogie Nights the Musical. He has regularly toured in the concert Mad About the Musicals and is currently starring in the second leg of the UK tour of Footloose. Last Saturday Gareth appeared as part of the line-up Boys Aloud, recreating the Girls Aloud hit Biology for BBC’s Let’s Sing and Dance for Comic Relief. Lisa Riley captured the hearts of Wolverhampton as the Slave Of The Ring in last year’s pantomime, Aladdin. Lisa is a regular panellist on ITV’s Loose Women and is known for playing Mandy Dingle in the ITV1 soap Emmerdale from 1995 to 2001. She more recently wowed viewers on the BBC1 series Strictly Come Dancing. Lisa also appeared in a Grand Theatre pantomime in the 2000 production of Dick Whittington as Fairy Bowbells. Ian Adams returns to the role of dame, asserting himself as a family favourite as Widow Twankey in last year’s pantomime, Aladdin. Ian wrote and performed in a production of Dick Whittington that was the very first pantomime to be presented inside London Zoo. Recently, Ian formed StarDam productions – a company who specialise in creating stage versions of popular children’s stories. Lazy Black Country internet sensation Doreen Tipton will appear as herself this year, it’s a lot of effort playing a different character. She has become a national treasure – at least regionally – in her native Black Country. Doreen’s original million hit YouTube viral success has now blossomed into a series of theatre tours, a full-length feature film featuring fellow Yam Yam and rock legend Robert Plant and Steve Bull, an autobiography (which somebody else had to write) her own BBC radio show, and even her own online comedy sketch channel called Doreen TV. Adam C Booth who received great critical acclaim as Wishee Washee in last year’s production of Aladdin will play Jack’s brother Simple Simon. Adam is a regular on Keith Lemon’s Sketch Show. Adam’s other TV appearances include Keith Lemon’s Lemon La Vida Loca, Pearly Gates (BBC), Coronation Street and Hollyoaks. Adam’s roles in theatre include Pepper in the West End production of Mamma Mia! at the Prince Edward Theatre, Les Miserables, West Side Story, Boogie Nights and Footloose. JACK AND THE BEANSTALK opens at the Grand Theatre on Saturday 9 December 2017 and runs until Sunday 14 January 2018. Tickets are already on sale and can be booked in person, by phone on 01902 42 92 12 or online at ENDS LISTINGS INFORMATION JACK AND THE BEANSTALK Sat 9 Dec 2017 – Sun 14 Jan 2018 Standard tickets from £19.00* *A £3 booking fee applies to all transactions. BOOK TICKETS HERE Notes to Editors This year, Dudley Zoological Gardens are the local partner for JACK AND THE BEANSTALK. The Grand Theatre pantomime attracts thousands of families to Wolverhampton each year, similarly in Dudley; families are drawn to a collection of the world’s rarest animals who find their home in the grounds of an 11th Century castle at Dudley Zoological Gardens.
  13. The BBC video of Boys Aloud has almost twice as many views as all the acts that ended up in the top three. Says it all.
  14. Gareth has set up a new Performing Arts venture with Faye calling it Fates Academy. Showbiz couple Faye Brookes and Gareth Gates are launching a performing arts academy The academy will teach singing, acting and dance to youngsters - and they've picked a great name for it Showbiz golden couple Faye Brookes and Gareth Gates are launching a performing arts academy together. Coronation Street favourite Faye and Pop Idol Gareth are excited to be opening Fates Academy just a short distance away from the Corrie studios at Trafford Wharf, to teach singing, acting and dance to aspiring young performers. Faye, who won the best newcomer gong at this year’s National Television Awards for her role as Kate Connor in the ITV1 soap, is hoping to bring in her Corrie co-stars and producers to teach masterclasses at Fates, an amalgamation of their names. Faye, 29, from Flixton, said: “There was nothing like this drama school around when I was that age and setting this up is a dream of mine. And working so close by makes it easier to bring people from Corrie in to do masterclasses. “I would love my co-stars to come in and it’s definitely something we can look at doing. “I hope that we can inspire the next generation of Coronation Street stars.” Fates Academy, based at University Technical College (UTC) at MediaCityUK will teach three age groups - five to eight-year-olds, nine to 12-year-olds and 13 to 18-year-olds every Tuesday from 4.30pm to 7.30pm The school, which will also prepare youngsters for auditions, aims to put on two shows each year. Faye and Gareth, who met when they trod the boards together in Legally Blonde: The Musical in 2012, are both from musical backgrounds. Stage star Gareth, who started singing when he was eight and plays the piano, guitar and drums, goes back on tour across the UK with Footloose The Musical next month. He said: “I already have three performing arts schools in Braford, Huddersfield and Milton Keynes and with Faye doing so well in Corrie and being on TV every night, we though that between us we could really bring a lot of experience to kids who want to perform. “We have both worked in the industry for years and it’s perfect to open at MediaCity which is literally a stone’s throw from the Coronation Street studios. “Faye only works two minutes away and will probably be there most weeks and I will be there when I can.”
  15. Welcome back Sharon. I remember you well. We had some really great chats about Gareth way back didn't we. Great to have you back with us.
