21st January 2019 — Anush, who first appeared on the BBC One series in November 2017 as its youngest-ever ‘Unexpected Star of the Show’, made an amazing comeback on the show last Saturday (January 19).
He was originally involved in a prank where he was tricked by Michael McIntyre himself at an Italian restaurant. Since then the 12-year-old has performed a rendition of the Jackson 5’s ‘Who’s Loving You’, recorded live at the Theatre Royal, and made his West End debut with Motown the Musical as a young Michael Jackson. He has also gone on to perform as a young Berry Gordy and Stevie Wonder, sharing a role with three others.
Anush, was invited back to Michael McIntyre’s BAFTA award-winning show and recorded a sequel for its fourth series. Alongside his Motown the Musical cast he did a special performance to close the show in what has been dubbed as one of ‘Michael McIntyre’s Big Surprises’.

In addition to that Anush also featured on CBBC’s Newsround in a special interview which aired last Friday 18th January (https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/news/watch_newsround).
Dad, Suhas says Anush loves watching Ellen DeGeneres and James Corden, and draws inspiration from singers such as Ed Sheeran, John Legend and Michael Bublé.
Everyone at Homefield is extremely proud of Anush's success and a group of staff recently went to watch him perform in the West End and caught up with him after the show at the stage door.
