It was an emotional night for Woburn’s Jason Brock and his band, Nightfall, as they were crowned runner’s up on BBC One’s Let It Shine.

The live show saw three bands, Nightfall, Drive, and Five to Five battle it out to land the role of a new boyband in a musical featuring Take That songs.

Nightfall performed musical number ‘Footloose’, as well as ‘End of the Road’ by Boyz II Men, the ballad seeing them earn a standing ovation from judges Gary Barlow, Dannii Minogue, Martin Kemp and Peter Kay. But despite their success, the public vote crowned Five to Five as champions.

Jason, at the front of the group, told BBC cameras: “Let It Shine has been a dream come true. It has helped me in more ways than I can imagine. When we first performed together it was the best moment of my life.”

Five to Five will star in new touring musical, The Band, premiering in Manchester this September.
