COMEDIAN Bradley Walsh pulled a stunt on a Widnes woman as part of a TV show.
Tara Fraser was in the audience at the London Palladium with her Zumba dance class when she suddenly ended up in the limelight.
“I got dragged up on the stage by Bradley,” said the 30-year-old from Halton View.
“He asked me to show him a few moves. Then he asked me what size my classes were in Widnes and would I like to teach 2,500?
“We did a few simple basic moves. Everyone was laughing, smiling and happy.”
The show Tonight At The London Palladium will be screened on ITV at 8pm tonight, Wednesday.
Singer Emeli Sande, the Chinese State Circus, Steps and Phantom of the Opera are all on the bill.
Mum-of-two Tara was challenged to take part in a quiz on stage and won £1,000.
Bradley asked her three fun-filled questions.
“He was so funny and up for a laugh,” said Tara.
“The whole experience was amazing, something I’ll never forget, it was incredible.
“For me to be on the stage teaching everyone in the London Palladium to dance is something I can’t get over.
“I’m putting on a big party to thank my classes for their loyalty and we’ll watch the show together.”
Tara has raised more than £20,000 for various charities over the past six years.
Her nan Gloria Lightfoot, 72, inspired her to donate £1,500 to Widnes and Runcorn Cancer Support Centre before she died from lung cancer last August.
“My nan was in a wheelchair but really enjoyed the evening,” added Tara, who runs classes at the Frank Myler Pavilion and Ormiston Chadwick Academy.
“The centre is brilliant and gave her a lot of help. We wanted to thank them.
“Zumba isn’t about losing weight or keeping fit, it’s about the music and having a giggle.
“It’s a community, we’re like one massive big family.”
Her mum Karren Fraser-Knight, 55, who helped to organise the surprise, said: “Tara is an amazing lady. She is a great mum, fosters children and looks after me as I have a disability.
“Yet she is always raising money for charity.”
