Deaf talent takeover on BBC primetime

The 'Limping chicken' Blog has dubbed last saturday night -Spet 18th- as 'Deaf Night' on BBC one as the channel broadcast two shows back to back that starred some incredible Deaf actors.

Kicking off the evening was an incredible episode of casualty, showcasing not just its regular talent- the wonderful Gabriella Leon but also starring the talented Sophie Stone, talent to watch Kelsey Gordan, Alex Nowak, Tianah Hodding and Libby Welsh! 6 Deaf actors on prime time!

This was quickly followed up with the first episode of this years Strictly Come Dancing which stars the stunning Roas Ayeling-Ellis. She used this episode to acclimate the audience and presenters with her use of BSL Interpreters- breaking the misconceptions and really championing representation- standing ovations in our house!

Well done to the beeb!
