Lewis isn’t the only Any Dream Will Do contestant celebrating these days. Fifth-place finalist Craig Chalmers will headline Kenwright’s new tour of Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Biblical musical (See News, 5 Jul 2007), fourth-place Ben Ellis is lined up to play Link Larkin in the West End premiere of Hairspray and second-place Keith Jack is planning on releasing an album. Far from being a “Close Every Door” situation, these reality TV contestants seem to be having all doors and windows thrown open wide to them.
