The music producer – who was famously close friends with the late Michael Jackson – was offered a lucrative TV deal from Simon Cowell back in 2007 and opted to join the panel of flop TV show ‘Grease is the Word’ (alongside Sinitta and Brian Friedman) instead of the massive franchise that it Britain’s Got Talent.
He admits now that he made the “wrong” decision and chose the wrong show when Cowell gave him the choice.

Today, television star and producer David Gest announced he is set to star in his brand new musical play/concert entitled ‘David Gest Is Nuts… My Life As A Musical’ – a unique gig which will begin touring the UK from 20th February 2008. The tour will open for two nights at the Hammersmith Apollo in London and will be a benefit gig for Caudwell Children’s charity, which helps terminally ill children. All monies from the 20th February show in London will go direct to the charity, of which David is an Ambassador.
There will also be a dinner and fundraising auction following the show, which will be attended by more than one hundred stars from the recording, television, film and sports industries. David admits: “In my wildest imaginations, I never thought I’d be dancing, singing and performing to over 100,000 people throughout the UK – considering I have no real talent, this is quite a feat!”
According to Gest’s best friend Michael Jackson, “We never thought we would see the day David Gest would sing and dance in public. Now he is working on flips and dances with little people. Considering David can’t sing and can’t dance it will be amazing to see just how nuts he gets on stage!” Read more & comment »
