  Academy: Ashley, Nigel & Pippa on probation
Updated 07 October 2002, 15.15
Fame Academy students on probation
The first three Fame Academy students to be put on probation have been announced - and they have been in tears.

After a long chat, the teachers decided the three to get the lowest grades for performing the least well in lessons are:

  • Ashley
  • Nigel
  • Pippa

This means they will have to sing for survival on Friday night's showdown.

Fact File
What will they sing?
Nigel: In The Midnight Hour
Pippa: I'm Like A Bird
Ashley: I Can See Clearly Now

Nigel, the oldest at 31, has already walked out of a dance class because he was finding it too tough.

Ashley has also had a hard time with the grooves and has admitted his voice needs lots of work. And blonde Pippa has been told off for not putting in 100% effort.

Meanwhile, Marli is becoming the teachers' and the public's pet! She was given an A which means she'll have a special treat later in the week.

And she gets to choose who she wants to sing with on Friday.

The public will vote for one person who they think deserves to stay. Then the other students will decide who is expelled.
