Celebrities to help teen Debutantes
Half a dozen UK teenagers are to be given the chance to learn from the experts and make their career dreams come true as part of a new T4 talent show.
Debutantes, which debuts over the weekend, will see the teenagers get professionals advice from a host of celebrity experts.
The show is being made in partnership with Transport for London and follows on from its recent ‘Don’t die before you’ve lived’ road safety campaign, which showed imaginary stars of the future killed on the capital’s roads before they realised their true potential.
Among those taking part will be aspiring celebrity journalist Alex Barham.
The 22-year old, who harbours ambitions of rising to the post of editor of Heat magazine, will be mentored by GQ editor and newspaper columnist Dylan Jones, while budding DJ Sophie will be given tips and encouragement by Radio One regular Nihal.
“I’m mentoring an up and coming artist Floss,” said MOBO winner MC Kano
“He’s willing to learn which is the most important thing and is enthusiastic and keen and he’s got a lot to say. He’s really done a lot with his life, in terms of working with youth centres and stuff. I’ve given him some tips on recording and helping getting him into the industry.”
