Ben: (On winning the whatsonstage award for Best Supporting Actor) Just to be nominated for an award at such a prestigious event is an honour in itself, but to win caps off an incredible year. I have to thank Andrew Lloyd Webber, John Barrowman, Bill Kenwright and all at the BBC for giving me the opportunity to show everyone what I can do. Then David Grindrod for giving me the call and putting me into the Hairspray audition, which was probably the turning point for a lot of things. Thanks also to Whatsonstage.com and everyone who voted – without you guys I wouldn't be here right now.
Ben: (On being in Hairspray) I am so thrilled to be making my professional musical theatre debut playing such a wonderful part as Link Larkin in such an amazing show as Hairspray.
Ben: Before music took over, I was quite a keen footballer: I really miss having kick-abouts with my mates!
Ben: I'm into so many different styles of music. My iPod must have the most random selection ever! It goes from Sexy Back to Phantom of the Opera. But maybe my favourite song is James Morrison's You give me something - such a quality, feel-good tune!
