DMG TV is proud to announce the release of the debut album by Debra Stephenson (Coronation Street’s Frankie Baldwin
and ex-Bad Girl Shell Dockley). The album - ‘In The Sunshine’ - will feature material that she has co-written with the
production team at Rive Droite studios (Kylie Minogue, Cher, Enrique Iglesias), as well as many songs that tens of
millions of people will have/would have seen her perform on TV since March 2005.
The viewing nation saw Debra sing ‘live’ on TV during ‘Comic Relief Does Fame Academy’ and her popularity ensured
that she progressed through the week to become one of the final six contestants.
Having already performed in a previous ‘Stars In Their Eyes Celebrity Special’ as Kylie Minogue, Debra performed on
‘Madonna Mania’, where her song – ‘Music’ - closed the show. In addition, Debra will also be performing in the new
‘Celebrity Stars In Their Eyes’ special - TX Date to be confirmed - when her breathtaking performance will leave
viewers absolutely stunned!
If performing and recording hasn’t been keeping Debra busy, her part in Coronation Street is about to step up a few
notches, as there is a major Coronation Street plot centreing on Debra’s character from mid-May through to July.
Consequently, there will be a lot of press and PR activity as the plot guessing-game continues.
Debra’s come a long way since appearing on BBC Television’s “Opportunity Knocks” in 1987, winning her way through
to the All-Winner’s Final broadcast live from the London Palladium.
She appeared in several episodes of ITV’s “Reckless”, starring Robson Green, before becoming a regular in children’s
ITV comedy drama “Cone Zone” and subsequently co-presenting CBBC’s “The Friday Zone”. A good role in “Midsomer
Murders” followed, and she was soon cast as a running character, Diane in the successful BBC drama, “Playing the Field”
which ran for the next three years. By this time Debra had been cast as Shell Dockley in ITV’s “Bad Girls” for which she
was twice nominated for the National Television Awards Most Popular Actress, as well as winning the TV Quick Award
for Best Actress.
Debra Stephenson has been a breath of fresh air on the biggest programme on UK television. She is an extremely
talented actress and singer, who will add a real spark to the Album chart.
