BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT SALFORD BEAUTY AND THE BEAST STARS UP FOR HIRE
 

Star date: 13th May 2018

SALFORD BEAUTY AND THE BEAST IN PRINCESS BUSINESS

Last night Britain's Got Talent viewers were wowed by Salford couple Joe and Katherine who appeared as Beauty and the Beast, much to the amusement and amazement of the panel, who just failed by one vote to send them through.

But now Salford people can have their very own Beauty and the Beast show plus lots of other Disney characters as Joe and Katherine have started a Princesses and Characters business, and are available for hire for children's birthday parties and more...

It didn't go quite as planned for Joe and Katherine O'Malley, who appeared as Beauty and the Beast on Britain's Got Talent last night. The couple just failed to progress, with two 'Yeses' from David Walliams and Amanda Holden but 'Noes' from Simon Cowell and Alesha Dixon...

Joe got two buzzers, as Simon said, because "it was difficult to sing through the mask", while David squealed "He needs a bigger hole". Finally, Alesha praised Katherine's "pleasant voice" but told her to "Ditch the Beast"...

However, the Beast ain't going nowhere, as the couple have started their own Princesses and Characters business, where Beauty and her Beast, plus other princesses are up for hire for children's parties, with songs, games and more...

Talking about their Britain's Got Talent experience, Katherine is really positive... "As soon as we walked on the audience loved it, they went wild because it was Beauty and the Beast" she recalls "It was really good. Simon doesn't like costumes; he just said 'No'. The panel didn't want to say 'Yes' as a duo; they wanted to split us up...Alesha said 'No' but gave some good feedback.

"Joe hasn't been doing it that long" she explains "He was in tune but the sound quality wasn't great because you couldn't hear through the mask. But the Beast only has a few lines..."

While many who go on Britain's Got Talent are polished professionals, Katherine and Joe both have day jobs, and Belle's dress was actually made by Katherine's mum, Jean Muriel. Behind their act is a love of singing and princesses...

"It's fun" says Katherine "We're trying to start our business, get it up and running and get some party bookings. We do Elsa and Olaf, Ariel and Sebastian, and Beauty and the Beast but we're looking to do all of them. We do songs, games, and entertain the children, like taking the cake out and making the birthday girl feel special. If there's boys, there'll be a character for them too.

"We charge £50 for a half hour appearance, which I think is affordable" she adds "We're not out to rip people off, we're just out to have a good time and for the kids to enjoy it."

The couple have already appeared at the Ordsall Festival as Elsa and Olaf (Joe didn't sing) and are building up a name as what they believe is Salford's only princess entertainment specialists.

"Salford does have children's entertainers but not specifically princesses, so hopefully we can entertain many children" says Katherine "A lot of people who do these parties mime but we're the real deal, it's mainly me singing."

Is Katherine not sick of princesses? "No I love it" she insists "I just love the fact that you turn up in costume - never mind the singing part – and four year olds believe you are the character, it's so cute."

While the Princesses and Characters business looks set to grow, Katherine has already applied for the X Factor...as a soloist...

SALFORD UNIVERSAL CREDIT RENT ARREARS DOUBLE THAT OF NON-UNIVERSAL CREDIT TENANTS

Star date: 16th November 2018

INCREDIBLE ARREARS INDICTMENT OF UNIVERSAL CREDIT

In a new City West Housing report for Salford City Council, it is revealed that, in Salford, the percentage of tenants on Universal Credit and in rent arrears is over double that for tenants who are not on Universal Credit. The figure is 78% compared to 37%.

City West currently has 1109 tenants claiming Universal Credit, and the company states that "The overall rent collection rate for these tenants for 18/19 is 93.05%, which is significantly lower than our collection rate for all tenants." It's yet another shocking indictment of the controversial benefit system.

OVER £100,000 SALFORD PARENT SCHOOL FINES NOT GOING BACK INTO SCHOOLS

CASH-STRAPPED SALFORD SCHOOLS NOT BENEFITING FROM PARENTAL FINES

A Freedom of Information response from Salford City Council has revealed that during the year 2017-18, £118,920 income was received from parental fines but didn't go directly to help cash-strapped schools in the city. Instead the money went to 'support council services generally'.

"I think the money should go back into education as the lack of funding is clearly apparent" says parent Mandi Lee, who put in the FOI request.

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL TO FINALLY TIGHTEN UP ON PUPPY SELLERS

Star date: 14th November 2018

NEW REGULATIONS MEAN TIGHTER CONTROL OF ANIMAL BUSINESSES

New laws on the sales and keeping of animals mean that Salford City Council will be forced to tighten up on regulating puppy sellers and animal keepers through new national regulations.

One of the biggest changes is that a puppy at a breeder's "may only be shown to a prospective purchaser if it is together with its biological mother", and that inspections of premises are to be carried out by a qualified inspector, rather than the Council's Environment Health Team.
