Name: Dinah O’Brien, I am 29 and from Barking

Show role: A singer and a dancer, performing iconic musical songs such as One Day More, Bye Bye Blackbird and the lead in Just Arrived from Copacabana, The Song That Goes Like This from Spamalot and others

Career highlight so far: My highlights so far would probably be being asked to sing at Dame Judi Dench’s birthday on the set of Mrs Henderson Presents – which was my first pro contract – and performing in front of over 15,000 people live in Trafalgar Square for VE Day celebrations with Will Young, which was also televised on the BBC

What musicals mean to me: Musicals are what I was brought up on. I come to life when I’m on stage performing

What supporting First Step means to me: Being able to try and recreate some of the most well-known and loved musical numbers for such a worthwhile and supportive cause is amazing
