The countdown has begun to an exciting one-man show by Britain’s Got Talent star Andrew Derbyshire.

Andrew, also known as the Derby Diva, is coming back to his Lancashire roots for a second show at Burnley’s Mechanics Theatre on Friday.

Last year the show was more about musical theatre but this year it will have a concert feel to it

Andrew Derbyshire in Concert will feature music from all genres and there will also be a live band and dancefloor for the audience to get up and strut their stuff!

Andrew, who found fame when he appeared on the TV talent show Pop Idol over a decade ago, is now based in London but currently on tour with his one-man show.

He is excited about returning to his Padiham home to see family and friends and to perform on the stage where he was first inspired to sing as a child. He was a regular performer with Basics Junior Theatre.

Andrew told the Express: “The reaction from my show in Burnley last year was fantastic, it was a sell out and people kept asking me when I would be back.

“I cannot wait to perform again in Burnley. Last year the show was more about musical theatre but this year it will have a concert feel to it.’’

Andrew’s career took off when he got through to the final 50 in Pop Idol and was spotted by a West End producer who cast him in the lead role for the smash hit musical “We Will Rock You”.

Since then he has never looked back, appearing in a number of shows and also on cruise ships.

Tickets for Andrew’s show are available from the Mechanics box office on 01282 664400, priced at £15 for adults and £10 for children.
