Who's got the Genfactor?

20th November 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

I was at the final of the Genfactor last night at the Sunderland Empire and was overwhelmed with the talent of Wearside’s kids. Ranging from dancers and singers to rock bands, the performances were very impressive. The judges unanimously voted for 15 year old Arran Hough as the winner – a Sandhill View School pupil, Arran showcased some amazing dancing abilities and blew the crowd away. Congratulations to all the finalists, you should be very proud of yourselves, and Well Done Arran, no doubt we’ll see you performing on Broadway in a few years time.

Day 4 of ‘Story time with Simon and Danni’ and today’s classic children’s book was Roald Dahl’s ‘The Twits’. Tomorrow is your last chance to win book vouchers to celebrate the Northern Children’s Book Festival coming to Sunderland, just by correctly guessing what book I'm reading, and I’ve saved the best till last!

Also tomorrow Simon and I will be joined by Little Simon and Danni. We’re going to be overrun with children all day at Sun FM Towers and I can’t wait! They’ll even be reading the showbiz news and doing the weather! I’m a big kid deep down and tomorrow I’ll have an excuse to mess about and hopefully spend all day colouring in and playing Hide and Seek.
