MICKLEY-based voice coach Julie Miles is about to step into the spotlight herself as one of the judges on a prime-time talent show.

She has joined ‘The 100’ judges assessing contestants on BBC One’s All Together Now. Hosted by comedian Rob Beckett, the 100-strong panel of industry-expert judges are led by former Spice Girl Geri Horner.

While the six-part series will air in the new year, a celebrity special will be broadcast on Christmas Eve, at 7.15pm.

Julie, who is nurturing a new generation of northern singers, including America’s Got Talent’s Courtney Hadwin, had a ball during filming in Manchester in September.

“There were at least 100 singers, vocal coaches, drag acts, you name it, all in the studio at the same time,” she said. “I’ve never had so much fun in my life!”
