Steven Hall, the Cumbrian local who appeared on Britain’s Got Talent, is preparing himself for a future in show business.
The telecommunications engineer, 53, took part in the nationwide Britain’s Got Talent tour and has recently signed with MIG, an entertainment management company. He finished seventh in the ITV show and is now being booked “left, right and centre”.
So much fan mail is being sent to him that he doesn’t have time to reply to it all, and he has become so famous that mail simply addressed ‘Steven Hall, Britain’s Got Talent, Kendal’ has managed to reach him.
Steven who is originally from Penrith has played some of the country’s biggest venues including London’s 02 Arena and Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena.
Talking about the national tour, Steven said: “It was everything you wanted it to be and more.”
“On the wall of the dressing rooms would be the likes of Queen and Whitney Houston who had performed in these places and I would think: ‘Wow, now it’s me’. We were treated like rock stars. All the hotels were booked and all you had to do was get on the coach. It was a bit surreal because I got on the train with my little case on June 1 for the semi-final and didn’t return home until June 27.”
