Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 1 - Meet the Contestants
AIRED:
Cat Deeley and Patrick Kielty host the launching episode of Fame Academy. We're introduced to the lucky 11 contestants - Ainslie, Ashley, Camilla, Chris, Katie, Lemar, Malachi, Marli, Naomi, Nigel and Pippa, and given a glimpse of their talents in their first ever performance. Then we're introduced to the students separately - why do they want to spend the next ten weeks in the Academy, and what do they want to achieve by doing so? All say that they want to be famous - and are confident that they will emerge from the show as winner. Lemar even fancies himself as a psychic who will be able to tell who's going to stay each week! The students preform in groups in front of a live audience, and the phone lines are opened for the twelfth contestant. Three of the runner-ups from the auditions are sitting in the audience, and must sing to get in - Paul, David and Sinead. As they make their performances to try and persuade the public to vote them in, the eleven definite for the show are flown to the Fame Academy by helicopter, for what looks to be an exciting ten weeks.moreless
