The People's Crooner Final Tonight

The Alan Titchmarsh Show tonight stages the final of the People's Crooner Competition on ITV 1 at 5:00 pm.
The finalists include north-east 'swooner' Jason Isaacs and 3 others.
Unlike the heats, the final is a phone-in vote so be sure to pick up the phone.
Well it was pretty close but our boy Jason ran out the winner.
I say 'our boy' but I did also have strong affinity with the other two guys. Alex Stewart I saw at The Spice last year and I caught Atilla Hosein supporting Buddy Greco at Durham so I knew it would be tight and well done all of you.
