Clement Freud returned to the judges panel for episode eight and, along with his fellow judges, Noele Gordon and Mickie Most, was entertained by the next six hopeful acts attempting to launch their career;

  • Phil Fernando (guitar/vocalist)
  • Johnnie Bryan (comedian)
  • Lance Harvey (vocalist)
  • Jimmy Hazel Anthony (vocal/dance act)
  • Alison Bendy (guitarist)
  • Showaddywaddy (eight-piece rock group)

Showaddywaddy, the rock act from Leicester, were the winners on the night and took their place in the Grand Final.

They sang a medley of rock ‘n roll hits from the likes of Eddie Cochran and Buddy Holly, which prompted Mickie Most to give them some very constructive comments and a very high mark.
