Amy is first to leave 'I'd Do Anything'

By
Amy Booth-Steel has become the first Nancy to be eliminated from BBC talent search I'd Do Anything.

Andrew Lloyd Webber sent the 24-year-old home after she lost out to Welsh actress Francesca Jackson in the sing-off.

The 12 hopefuls sang 'I'd Do Anything' and one solo song each on Saturday in a bid to show viewers that they have what it takes to star in Cameron Mackintosh's West End production of Oliver!

Judge John Barrowman described Amy's performance as "confident" and "quirky", but added: "The top end of your voice I found a little bit uneasy to listen to."

However, fellow panelist Denise Van Outen said Amy gave the song "great oom-pah-pah" and Barry Humphries praised her humorous rendition.

Amy and Francesca sang 'Tell Me On A Sunday' in last night's result show after finishing in the bottom two in the public vote. Lloyd Webber then picked Francesca to stay in the competition.

Amy said afterwards: "I feel a bit numb. I feel upset, confused and sad, but happy that I've gone through this experience."

Meanwhile, Lloyd Webber and Cameron Mackintosh chose 11-year-old Gwion from Wales as the first prospective Oliver to go through to the semi-final.

All 12 boys sang 'Food Glorious Food' from the musical in Saturday's show.
