Middlesbrough based accordionist /vocalist received a standing ovation when he appeared on prime time televisions popular show hosted by Chris Evans and Louise Minchin. It was absolute nostalgia all the way as the presenters, along with special guests Giles Brandreth, Ray Winstone, and Martin Freeman, acting as judges, gave acts that had won “Opportunity Knocks” back in the 1970’s, the chance to show the world “THEY STILL HAD IT“. With only a 30 second slot each, to impress an invited studio audience of mixed ages, from all walks of life, that they were still top entertainers, it was a real test of their ability. Unlike many TV programmes which are pre-recorded. “The One Show” goes out live so it’s one chance only. Short clips of the original “Opportunity Knocks” performance were shown before each artiste performed, and Steve’s wife Maggie was again in the audience as she had been in 1978. Still his inspiration and support.
