Showbiz doyenne Rhonda Burchmore has taken to Twitter to express her disappointment at not making the roll-call for Carols by Candlelight this year.
She last performed at Carols in 2010, but while she has previously noted her disappointment, this year it is drawing headlines.
Carols by Candlelight family varies its line-up each year, but Marina Prior, Sylvie Paladino, David Hobson are regulars along with the great Denis Walter, who has performed for more than half his life, plus Vision Australia ambassador Anthony Callea and husband Tim Campbell. And Santa.
Showbiz is tough even in festive times. Not even Debra Byrne, Hi-5 nor Humphrey B. Bear get an annual invite.
Rhonda, who was a favourite on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, currently has a new single, ‘I’ll Be Home for Christmas.’
Here she is in fine form way back in 1994.
