This came as a little bit of a surprise, but it seems that Gareth Gates has thrown in the towel at the west end, and is sailing off with P&O to perform a series of intimate gigs onboard their cruise ships.
The popstar came second place to Will Young back on the very first series of PopStars, however his music career never really took off and he has since appeared on the reality TV show, Dancing on Ice.
Gareth Gates has said that he is looked forward to performing on the cruise ships, having never been on a cruise before it will be a new experience for him, and I’m sure it will be an experience that both he and his fans will love.
For anyone interested in seeing Gareth perform live on P&O Cruises, he will be setting sail next month and guess what? He has even agreed to do a meet and greet following his performance – every teenage girl’s dream?!
