  Fame Academy: Naomi's in but won't sing
Updated 10 October 2002, 19.03
Naomi can't take sing in Friday night's show
Troubled Naomi will be staying in Fame Academy for the rest of the week - but she won't be singing on Friday night's live show.

Naomi Roper's been struggling all week with a sore throat, and she was whisked off to see a specialist.

Naomi even burst into tears when she heard an announcement asking all the teachers to go to Richard Park's office on Thursday - she thought she was going to be axed from the show.

Safe

But voice coach Carrie told her she was staying put, but that she wouldn't be singing on Friday night's performance.

"I don't want to risk your voice," Carrie told the worried 19-year-old.

So Naomi's safe for now.

The real Pippa

But probationers Pippa, Nigel and Ashley, who all face eviction on Friday, are getting nervous.

Carrie told Pippa she looked 'beautiful'
Carrie told them that they'd all improved though - particularly Pippa, who impressed everyone with her version of Nelly Furtado's I'm Like A Bird.

"That was amazing," Carrie told her. "Standing here with no make-up on, you look more beautiful than I've ever seen you look. This is the real Pippa. You're very talented."
