An aspiring musician and actress has spoken of her pride at making her first television appearance.

Amy Lynch, 25, who grew up in Nettlebed and studied performing arts at The Henley College, has been chosen as one of 100 judges on the BBC’s new weekly talent show ‘All Together Now’ hosted by Geri Haliwell and Rob Beckett.

Daughter of Kenny Lynch, who had a number of hit singles in the sixties, Amy has also featured in a number of adverts and a feature length film.

Miss Lynch said: “Dad has been supportive and is very happy for me to be doing the show.

My long-term goal is to get on a programme that combines singing and acting, which are my two passions. I’d love to be on something similar to Glee.

I’ve always been the one who would get up at parties and force everyone to listen to me singing and was constantly badgering my parents to send me to drama school.

I actually think my time at The Henley College was the most useful training I received.

It set me up really well for going on to higher education and beyond so I’m really thankful for that.”

Congratulations Amy!
