    When something is wrong, it’s wrong and this is wrong. I think producers should have a look at Nicholas Williams on his Facebook page and his video of us both in the Tower Ballroom Blackpool. The pruducers also need to have a look at Nicholas Williams video he sent to Blackpool Gazette, regarding the Joe Pasquale news story of him appearing in the stage play version of Some Mother’s Do Have Em. I know new comic talent like my husband Nicholas Williams never get a look in, simply because in instances like this new talent don’t get a look in and that is why it’s wrong. With a show on stage like this, why were there not open auditions held, to give a new talent a chance. Another reason is because everything has to be top secret before the chosen one for the part is announced. This is the 21st century, everyone is equal and unknown talent should be given a chance, but no. I know what reply I will get is Britain’s Got Talent and since when did a comic talent win Britain’s Got Talent, never,as I said at the top, when it’s wrong it’s wrong and this is wrong, period end of story.
