TV stardom for students

The Bedford Sixth Form Communal

Identical twins Jasmine and Shola McAteer, aged 16 from Wixams, are now live on national TV screens in the Christmas Lidl advert “Make Christmas a Lidl special”.

They are seen tucking into Christmas lunch surrounded by an orchestra in the Lidl family home.

Sixth form version

Jasmine and Shola McAteer

Shola is at The Bedford Sixth Form studying English Literature, English Language, Sociology, Fine Art and Dance.  Jasmine is studying Level 3 Extended Diploma in Dance at the South Banks Arts Centre of Bedford College. Both gained their TV roles through Adelle Moss of the AM Kids Agency, and Bedford College performing arts lecturer.

Shola said:

“Adelle has played a massive role in my working life , she’s continuously offered her advice and opened many doors for me as a young actor and dancer. From the age of nine she has mentored me, giving me a kick start as a young performer.”

What else is going on?
