THE winner of Britain's Got Talent 2020 will visit Bridgwater next month to perform a 'one man comedy musical' show.

Jon Courtenay will perform at the McMillan Theatre on Saturday March 9 as part of his UK tour, featuring his new two-part show, Bigger.

The unique performance will see Jon play musical instruments, sing, tell stories, perform stand-up, and even treat attendees to renditions of some of his much-loved performances from his time on Britain’s Got Talent.

The musical tells Jon's story of how his road to success was far from easy, as whilst he was capturing the hearts of the nation on TV, he was diagnosed with potentially life-threatening skin cancer.

No one involved with Britain's Got Talent was aware of this at the time, and a spokesperson said: 'When Jon took part in the Britain’s Got Talent Final in 2020 – he wasn’t just fighting to win – he was fighting for his life.'

Despite winning the show, and performing at the Royal Variety Performance, Jon faced more adversity when he was told his cancer had spread.

However, in April 2022, he finally received the all clear, and he is now determined to raise awareness of the world’s most common cancer as an ambassador for the charity Skcin.

Speaking ahead of his Bridgwater show, Jon said: 'I seem to have done shows at venues quite close to Bridgwater but never actually there so this is overdue.

"As a middle-aged, bald, comedy pianist it’s also probably the closest I’ll get to performing at Glastonbury!

"There is just nothing better than performing in front of a live audience who have paid to see you - nothing comes close in this business.

"I may not be filling arenas but I'm happy on any stage in front of an audience who WANT to be there.

"Every night is different and meeting the audience afterwards is always very lovely too.

"My first tour in 2021 was still hampered slightly by Covid, so I'm looking forward to saying hello to people and not having to wear a mask."
