Ben misses out on 'Joseph' final
Ben Ellis
Andrew Lloyd Webber said it was a tough decision to send Ben home
Joseph hopeful Ben Ellis has been knocked out in the semi-final of BBC musical theatre talent hunt Any Dream Will Do.

Lewis Bradley, Keith Jack and Lee Mead will battle it out in next week's final to choose a new lead for Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Andrew Lloyd Webber ruled in favour of Bradley after he finished in the bottom two of the public vote with Ellis.

Susan McFadden and Michelle Antrobus reached the Grease Is The Word final.

Eliminated

Vicky Hoyles and Alison Crawford's dream of playing Sandy in the new West End musical production of Grease came to an end in the ITV1 talent search.

Crawford failed to survive the judges' vote, while Hoyle was later eliminated in the public vote.

They will join Danny Bayne and Anthony Kavanagh, who are vying to play the lead male role of Danny in the new production.
