She is three-time British Open to the World Latin American champion, ten-time United States Latin American champion, and multiple-time British National champion. By 21, Shirley had won nearly every major title she competed in worldwide. She is the only person to have ever won the British Open to the World Latin American Championships in Blackpool with two different partners, and reached the finals an impressive 17 times. She still remains the youngest ever female to reach the British Open to the World Dance Championship finals. Shirley has been the recipient of three Carl Alan Awards (the Oscars of the world of dance), Teacher of the Year Award and has been inducted into both the United States and Great Britain Dance Hall of Fame.


In addition to her role on Strictly, Shirley has been seen giving masterclasses and commentating on the American series Dancing with the Stars, is a frequent panellist on Loose Women, and was the subject of BBC1’s Who Do You Think You Are? She presented two series of the popular This Morning featureMatchmaker Mountain for ITV and fronted the CBBC series Our School Summer Camp. Shirley’s numerous other appearances include The Jonathan Ross Show,Britain’s Got More TalentThrough the Keyhole,Family FortunesCrystal MazeCatchphraseThe One ShowTipping Point: Lucky StarsThe Graham Norton Show and Celebrity Juice, amongst others. Further to this, Shirley was asked to lend her voice to the Puss in Boots story for the CBeebies channel in collaboration with Northern Ballet, and presented aFriday Night Is Music Night special for BBC Radio 2. 

In 2019, Shirley was one of nine celebrities selected for BBC1’s Kilimanjaro: The Return, where they climbed the 5,895 metre mountain to raise funds for Comic Relief supported projects in the UK and internationally.

Whilst Shirley continues in her role as head judge on the biggest show on British television, she has also recently fronted her own podcast, co-hosted BBC1’sMorning Live, presented on BBC Radio 2, appeared onCelebrity Sewing Bee, and released her sensational autobiography Behind the Sequins.

The guitar maestro Jon Gomm tour message

“It’s not unexpected, but I’m still crushed to announce that I’m having to reschedule The Faintest Idea UK/Eire Tour – New dates are all set up for Autumn/Winter 2021, and tickets on sale (if you already have a ticket for one of the gigs, it’s transferable).


However, I am desperate to play these new songs. They don’t feel completely born until I’ve physically felt a human reaction to them.
So I’m doing a short run of very limited Social Distance Gigs in the coming weeks (there were more booked, but some have fallen to new lockdowns before we could even announce them), and an Online Album Launch Gig on November 15th.


I can’t help but feel angry with those governments who have let their ideological obsession with the free-market overrule public health, and so ruined both. It’s a macro version of the exact same heedless dollar-chasing which unlocked a vault of rainforest pathogens and spilled it into a city street.”

Liverpool heroes Cast are back for the annual Liverpool Christmas show, this time at the Grand Central Hall.

Saturday 12th December at Grand Central Hall Liverpool

Things are a little bit different at the moment, but we will still have the annual Cast hometown gig this December. This year due to Covid19 and the need to socially distance at live music gatherings, the show will be at Grand Central Hall, in an all seated format. Seats will be available in group bubbles of 2, 3, 4 and 5 (if you have a group larger than this then please contact the venue directly). Group bubbles should (currently) consist only of people from the same household. You can however buy tickets next to your mates in the next bubble if you act quickly and pick the right seats. There are only 400 tickets on sale, so be very quick or miss out.

TICKETS HERE

Originally formed in 1992 from the ashes of two of the most legendary and lauded guitar bands of all time, The La’s and Shack, Cast released four albums, the second ‘Mother Nature Calls’ also went platinum (three of them top 10), and had ten top 10 singles, before disbanding in 2001. ‘All Change’ became the biggest selling debut album of all time for Polydor Records. After the band’s split, John Power released three solo albums, and played intermittently with the reformed La’s.

A decade later in 2012, the bands original line-up reunited with original producer John Leckie (Stone Roses, Radiohead, The Fall) for ‘Troubled Times’. The reinvigorated band produced an album full of the anthemic, melodic and beautifully written songs for which they have always been loved by their fervent fanbase.

With Founding member Pete Wilkinson retiring form the band in 2013. John Power (guitar/vocals), Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson (lead guitar – also playing with Robert Plant) and Keith O’Neill (drums) were joined by former La’s member Jay Lewis on bass.

At the end of 2015 Cast celebrated the 20th anniversary of their classic album ‘All Change’, with two sold out shows at the historic Liverpool Philharmonic Hall where they played the record in it’s entirety accompanied by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

The bands Latest album ‘Kicking Up The Dust’ was released on 21st April 2017. The album, Cast’s sixth studio album, was recorded at The Motor Museum in Liverpool and was produced by resident studio legend – Alistair Groves.

Labelled ‘The Who of the 90’s’, Noel Gallagher once described watching Cast play live as “a religious experience.”
