Year 6 pupil in ITV’s The Big Audition : Young Presenter 2018

Congratulations to Year 6 pupil Ella Marie who was selected for audition and was then shortlisted down to one of ten children, to appear on ITV’s show The Big Audition : Young Presenter 2018. 

The initial audition took place in Spring earlier this year and was judged by presenters from CBBC, CBeebies and CiTV – Pui Fan Lee, Luke Franks, Arielle Free, Chris Jarvis & Ben Shires. Thousands applied nationwide and Ella-Marie was shortlisted into the final 10 to audition which was an incredible accomplishment, especially as it was her first ever audition. 

The show went out recently on ITV and although Ella was narrowly pipped to first place, the show’s judge and Head of Bafta said that it was a very close contest between Ella-Marie and the winner! BAFTA have since been in contact asking Ella-Marie to pursue acting, and in particular presenting.

Ella-Marie has recently been given a lead role playing Jasmine, in Aladdin, our next school drama production.  Well done Ella-Marie!
