Make Believe Worldwide Ltd are proud to announce the success of 8 children who successfully auditioned and appeared in last night’s Celebrity Big Brother (15 Jan 2018) featuring Ann Widdecombe and Wayne Sleep.
The children are all members of the MB Talent agency and were used as part of a task for the Celebrities which saw Ashely James win immunity from the next eviction.
The children who’s ages range from 4-6 include Bella Page, Annie Wiggins and Jake Tucker who attend Make Believe Harlow; Anjelica Scott who attends Make Believe Ware; Tai Miller who attends Make Believe Islington; Cassius & Ruby Mae Sanderson who attend the Leytonstone branch and Scott Morrison who does not yet attend a branch.
The Make Believe agency (MB Talent) is now run by Eilidh McCole who has been running it for nearly 2 years and has seen a boom in auditions and success rates!
Talent Agent, Eilidh McCole was on set with the children filming and said: “I couldn’t believe how great the kids were. Usually, they have lines from a script or a dance routine prepared for filming, but to go in the house and just be themselves, was amazing to watch! They had so much fun with their new Celeb friends!”
Founded by Joel Kern in 2004 Make Believe have 50 schools in and around London, Australia and most recently Manchester, teaching youngsters the basic skills in the performing arts. Kern, who started Make Believe aged 15 by teaching five students to sing, dance and act, has seen the company grow into one of the most exciting performing arts companies with around 3500 children enjoying the after-school classes on a weekly basis. And with a raft of talent coming out of the Make Believe Talent Agency (including youngsters landing roles in West end Musicals, TV shows and adverts) the future is looking very bright for the Ilford-based producer who won the Federation of Small Business Young Entrepreneur of the year for South East England award. The Make Believe head office is now based at The Stratford Circus Theatre, home to the 2012 Olympics.
Joel said: “To provide our students with a platform to enable them to do what they love is exactly why we do what we do! It was a privilege to see 8 little stars enjoying themselves on screen!”
