Final set for Over The Rainbow

Three contestants named in final of Over The Rainbow. And then there were three. The winner of Over The Rainbow, to find a Dorothy to star in Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s new production of The Wizard of Oz, edged a step closer on Sunday as Steph left the show. That leaves Lauren Samuels, 22, from London, Sophie Evans, 17, from Wales and Danielle Hope, 17, from Greater Manchester in the final on Saturday (22nd May, 7pm). It was NAIL-BITING, with Lord LW deciding to save Lauren – which meant poor Steph had to go. Saturday will prove a close call.
