Suzanne Shaw started ballet lessons at the age of two and by the age of three was attending the Lupino and Freelance Dance School where she trained in all forms of dance. She also studied acting, and performed in her first show Annie at five years old. She appeared in countless television roles including an Esso advert, Holby City, and a BBC production, Elidor.
Her break came in 2001 when the ITV show Popstars launched a competition for contestants to become part of a newly formed pop band. Suzanne had just turned 18, and attended the auditions and successfully made it through several elimination rounds. She was chosen as one of the ten finalists and became one of the members of Hear'Say, having beaten 4,000 other hopefuls. Their debut single was the fastest selling non-charitable record ever in the UK, selling 1.3 million copies.
Since the band split in 2002, Suzanne has appeared in musical theatre and landed a role in the remake of the Summer Holiday musical in London's West End, and later in a UK tour of the show.
In February 2005, Suzanne took on the role of narrator in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, in London’s West End. A leading role in Snow White followed, which was hailed as the UK's best pantomime, and then as Janet in The Rocky Horror Show in London’s West End and national theatre tour. Suzanne went on to join London’s West End cast of Chicago playing the role of Roxie Hart.
During 2010 and 2011, Suzanne played the role of Eve, granddaughter to Edna in the popular ITV1 soap Emmerdale. Suzanne saw out 2011 with a performance as the title role in the family Panto Cinderella at Manchester’s Royal Opera House, and she began 2012 as the lead female role in a touring production of Mike Stott’s award winning comedy stage play Funny Peculiar.
Suzanne returned to Panto at the Richmond Theatre for the 2012 Christmas production of Aladdin, starring alongside celebrated comedian Tim Vine. She can currently be seen as a regular contributor on ITV’s This Morning, as well as a host of shows across the ITV network, including brand new family entertainment show Big Star’s Little Stars.Read Less
