"It's been a brilliant insight into what will be expected of us .. it's been a fantastic experience to work with the director David Tucker in a professional filming environment. Although a little daunting the challenge has been exhilarating .."Catherine Burton, Lucy Shelton & Hannah Paul (2011 September 5-Star programme)
