Actor Ben Richards, best known for his roles in Footballers’ Wives and The Bill, spent the day in Mansfield last week showing the TV stars of tomorrow how it’s done.

Ben, who has just finished starring as Bill Sikes in Oliver, spent a day hosting a workshop with the students of the Expressions performing arts academy, showing them acting techniques, how to audition for roles, answering questions and offering advice on everything to do with the entertainment world.

Ben, who has put his name to a scholarship at the academy, said: “I hope this award inspires new talent to achieve their goals and make their dreams become a reality.’
