End of tough television road

IT WAS bye-bye Britney Fierce on Wednesday.

We are talking about Winston Hills dance teacher Davin Griffiths-Jones and his drag persona in reality television competition I Will Survive which in its own way has "given him a sign".

"I realised how pretty I looked as a girl," he said.

"I think now people will expect me to come out as Britney Fierce in my [stage] show Priscilla to Moulin Rouge."

Griffiths-Jones said he is seriously considering including her in his show, which features hits from Australian movie musicals including Priscilla.

Far from being disappointed with his elimination from the show, Griffiths-Jones said he was "relieved" because the hours were "insane and the pressure and stress was getting to me." The 31-year-old was one of 12 contestants on the show, which searches for Australia's ultimate triple threat: a skilled dancer, singer and actor.

"I'm a reality TV addict and I knew there had to be a villain character and I sort of took on that role and was always saying things that I knew would rattle some feathers," he said.

"A lot of people are telling me I suit reality TV, that I should have my own reality show, but I'm not sure.

"I'm getting recognised so much, it's unbelievable."Griffiths-Jones opened the Davin Griffiths-Jones School of Performing Arts in his home town of Winston Hills when he was 19.

I Will Survive airs on Ten on Tuesdays from 7.30pm.
