TV pop star Gareth Gates headlined a concert for holidaymakers in Burnham-On-Sea on Saturday night (May 16th).

The singer, who shot to fame during ITV’s Pop Idol, performed at Burnham Holiday Village during a concert as part of a nationwide Haven Holidays tour.

There was standing room only as over 500 spectators filled the park’s performance area to see him sing a line-up of hit songs from the past 20 years.

A spokesman for the park told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “Gareth was a big hit with the big crowd of holidaymakers who watched him. He showed what a powerful singer and performer he is.”

Gareth Gates first found fame as runner up in the inaugural series of Pop Idol. He went on to have four number one hit singles and has sold more than three million records.

More recently, he has performed in a series of theatre musicals and has also appeared on a number of TV shows including ITV’s Dancing on Ice.
