Coco… aka Bobby!
Saturday 6th April 2013
Finally… after the toughest decision making in any comp, ever – we can announce that the winner of our awesome ‘Could You Be Coco’ comp is 13 year old Bobby B from Kent! Bobby has tons of personality and confidence – plus outstanding acting skills, of course. Her cheeky grin and friendly manner helped to seal the deal… and when her first vlog goes live in a few weeks time, I think you will agree!
I want to say a HUGE well done to Bobby, and also to the other nine finalists, Katie, Lea, Emily-Indigo, Omni, Ophelia, Grace, Tilly, Mia and Siena-May. Every one of the finalists was talented, dedicated and determined, and made Coco come to life in their own unique way; each and every one of them would have made a wonderful Coco. Although there could only be one winner, we very much hope you will be seeing more of the other finalists too, if we are able to go on with CathyCassidyTV after the end of Season Three. We have all kinds of plans – and the ‘Could You Be Coco’ finalists had some awesome ideas for making it even better than it is now!
Although we were asking an awful lot of our entrants for this comp, we had over 200 entries, and of a very, very high standard. Around 30/40 entrants have been ‘highly commended’ and extracts from their audition reels will be shown on CCTV in a few weeks time, as we felt they should have a little of the limelight too. Puffin have now replied to everyone, so if you haven’t had an email your message may have bounced back to us – a few of our emails kept pinging back, but we HAVE tried our hardest to contact everyone. If you haven’t heard, then apologies – cyberspace is conspiring against us! To EVERYONE who entered, well done – the Puffin team and I were totally bowled over by the quality and talent of your auditions. I always knew I had the best readers ever, and this has proved it yet again!
If you missed out this time, don’t panic – there will be more video challenges coming up, so keep a look out! If you’re not into acting, don’t worry either – our annual My Best Friend Rocks comp will be launching in June, and that could be YOUR chance!
And if you can’t wait until then, well nip over to CathyCassidyTV and leave a comment on our behind-the-scenes clip ‘Get Skye’s Style’ before Tuesday 9th… you could win not just the usual £10 New Look voucher but also the gorgeous, vintage-style necklace Skye is wearing in the video. Cool!
