Leanne, was Michael’s ‘Unexpected Star of the Show’, and was surprised with the opportunity to perform live to an audience on the show, on Saturday 3rd December.

The mother of 2 has devoted her life to her children, but has always dreamed to be a singer. Her family and friends wanted to give her the opportunity to fulfill this dream, so secretly applied for the surprise show. Leanne who thought she had simply gone out for a drink in London with a friend, was surprised by Shane Filan from Westlife, who invited her to a ‘gig’ that was secretly the Big Show stage – where she was going to be performing. The stunning performance was certainly a not to be missed moment – If want to see Leanne’s performance, you can watch it here.

The BBC show had over 6 million viewers, beating the X Factor in viewing figures on Prime time TV – and Sherburn’s Leanne was the star.
