Siobhan recently wowed audiences as the only female finalist in Britain’s Got Talent 2019. Described as "The love child of Peter Kay and Victoria Wood" her hilarious self-penned songs really struck a chord with the nation who could totally relate to a selection of her observational daft ditties... covering subjects from becoming a first-time Mum at 40, tantrum throwing toddlers and the frustrations of mother daughter relationships, we were treated to an insight of her life which she presented with exceptional candour and warmth.
"You’re hilariously funny but more than that you have this tremendous warmth....we love you" DAVID WALLIAMS
"Very natural, very relatable, you’re a great writer and an absolute breath of fresh air" ALESHA DIXON
"You always get this massive crowd reaction...you light up the room and you’re very funny" SIMON COWELL
"I’d just love to go on a girls night out with you, you’re a riot!!" AMANDA HOLDEN
The show was not Siobhan’s first foray into the world of entertainment. She started her career at the age of 16 taking to the road playing gigs up and down the UK which was a tough apprenticeship but invaluable experience in dealing with audiences. Back then, she was a vocalist, treating the crowds to every style from pop to Opera. The Stage newspaper declared her as having “one of the great British voices of this, or any other time” but she soon found her personality shone through and Ken Dodd deemed her “a sunny new star with the voice of an angel and a natural comedic ability”
In 2003 she was a finalist on Channel 4s classical singing competition "Operatunity" dazzling with a version of Nessun Dorma. After this exposure she was in great demand performing at major sporting events, belting out this classic Puccini crowd pleaser on the pitch in front of thousands of spectators! She met Frank Skinner, surprisingly an opera fan himself, at the London Coliseum and he generously gave her a spot on his TV show.
Offers from major cruise lines came flooding in(pardon the pun!) and Siobhan has performed all over the world to every nationality imaginable, proving that her appeal is universal. Australia and Antarctica are her all time favourite cruise destinations.
She has appeared on "This Morning", "Loose Women", "Lorraine" and "Good Morning Britain", each time custom-writing amusing songs in a matter of minutes, all about the shows presenters. This is indicative of her spontaneous quick wit and her natural ease in live television situations.
Siobhan has strong Irish roots but grew up in Yorkshire where she lives with her partner and 3 year old daughter. She should probably cultivate some worthwhile high brow hobbies... however in her spare time, of which there is very little, she is a self-taught gin and red wine taster!
Siobhan brings her own inimitable charm to any event and leaves her audiences feeling like they’ve made a new life-long friend.
