Delighted to take part

Band Manager Richard Parsons, told 4BR: “We were contacted by the producers some weeks ago and asked if we were able to provide a short festive opening piece to start off the show.

We provided a variety of musical options and, following a visit to the band room by the production team, we were delighted to be asked to take part in the show.

We were conveyed to the ITV London Studios where our dressing rooms and makeup awaited — and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.”
