(Non-DSB) Congratulations, Katy!

The BBC1  TV competition for the best tribute act was won last night by Katy Setterfield as Dusty Springfield.

The prize is a contract to perform in Las Vegas.

Screaming with delight, Katy was lifted into the air by her fellow acts, as they crowned her The One and Only…winner.

There was no DSB impressionist, which most fans reckon was a blessing 🙂

Katy was my favourite and a stunningly realistic lookalike and soundalike.

Good luck in Vegas – she deserved to win!

Time after time
I tell myself that I’m so lucky
To be loving you
I’m so lucky to be
The one you run to see
In the evening
When the day is through

I only know what I know
The passing years will show
You kept my love so young
So new
And time after time
You’ll hear me say that i’m
So lucky to be loving you

I only know what I know
The passing years will show
You kept my love so young
So new
And time after time
You’ll hear me say that i’m
So lucky to be loving you

Sorry it’s not too clear.

Ted Heath’s band included Ronnie Verrell, the brilliant drummer.

He will be featured on a tribute page soon.

He’s still going strong.
