X Factor and MTV guests bring extra buzz to Norwich holiday workshops
Three special guests brought an added buzz to some summer holiday workshops in Norwich.
Organised by theatre arts school Stagecoach and held at Notre Dame High School, the workshop had more than 50 children attend over five days.
The workshops included singing, hip hop, musical theatre and drama from three professionals teachers, with three special guests lending their expertise.
First was Justin Vanderhyde, who was in last year's series of the X Factor and got as far as judge Louis Walsh's house. He held a singing workshop with the children.
He was joined by Rie Fujjii, who has recently been in the video of UK hip hop stars Tinchy Strider and Wiley and is a choreographer for MTV, who taught a street dance workshop.

Principal of Stagecoach Norwich, Jennie Fisher, said: 'It was quite a big deal to get the three instructors in – getting someone from the X Factor is quite hard. They were all amazing.
'All the parents loved what the kids had learned in the big show we held at the end. It was probably one of the best yet, it was all outstanding.'
