Superstar: Andrew Lloyd Webber bans booze and nookie so finalists can “focus”
Yesterday, we reported that Superstar boss Andrew Lloyd Webber had ordered some of the chubby finalists to slim down if they hope to be in with a chance of landing the lead role in his remake of hit seventies musical, Jesus Christ Superstar.
And it seems he’s also ordered all the finalists to cut out the booze and nookie – banning the wannabes from having lady friends at the luxury house the finalists are sharing – in order to make them “focus” on their singing and performances on the live shows.
A show insider told the Sun, “For a show about finding the new Jesus Christ Superstar, some of the behaviour has been distinctly un-godly.”
The paper adds, “With the exception of teetotaller David Hunter, contestants had been indulging in boozy sessions after the live ITV1 shows and while watching the pre-recorded episodes…”
Apparently, Lloyd Webber issued the orders after several finalists turned up late, and hung over, for rehearsals.
The inside source added, “Alcohol has been banned for the rest of the series in a bid to get the boys to knuckle down.
“They love their beer and with them all living together they were getting into big drinking sessions.
“Some of them have been whingeing that they are being worked too hard on the nightly series and were hitting the bottle to relax, but this is not on.
“If they win, they will be working all hours on the arena show so they have to get used to it.”
Sources say he’s behaving as though he’s already landed the lead role, and one said, “Nathan is a loud character backstage and has been vocal in his opinions, and it hasn’t gone down well with some of the production staff.”
