A huge thank you to our fabulous MC Bernie Coss, to our three judges James, Catherine and Sandra who were very articulate and witty on the night, to our ladies and gents on the hospitality team, to all the men that did the door and the security. To all the people in the back room, Alice who done a wonderful job on all the dancers’ hair, Sarah for doing the makeup. The ladies that baked, the ladies who did the costumes, the ladies that counted the votes, again thank you.
