Rosamund Urwin and Sheridan Smith

‘The opinion former’ - Rosamund Urwin, 25

Journalist with the Evening Standard.

“What sets Rosamund apart from any other, often much older, journalists is … the consistent quality of her writing.  She is able to get to the bottom of very complex issues and explain them well,” says Chris Blackhurst, the Evening Standard’s City editor and Rosamund’s boss.

‘The new West End queen’ - Sheridan Smith, 28

Smith is a familiar face on The Royle Family, Gavin and Stacey and most recently as leading lady in Legally Blond in the West End.

Smith has received glowing praise for Legally Blond. Charles Spencer wrote in the Telegraph, ‘The chief glory of the show is Sheridan Smith as Elle, blessed with vitality, warmth, great comic timing.’ Michael Billington in the Guardian talked about her ‘true star quality’ and called her a ‘natural comic.’
