Tim Prottey-Jones is the latest contestant to be eliminated from Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Superstar'
Tim Prottey-Jones has been eliminated from 'Superstar'.
The 32-year-old contestant lost out in an elimination battle with David Hunter on the ITV search for the next actor to play Jesus in a touring version of 'Jesus Christ Superstar', and the show's head judge Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber eventually sided with David.
He said: "I really did have to listen to both of you again and what we have tonight is a very strange situation.
"We had two of the best performances of the night and I am going to agree that in an ideal world I would not have wanted to see you in the bottom two because neither of your performances were the worst performances of the night, they were absolutely not.
"So I now have to think really what would I be doing as the producer of this show and thinking frankly, professionally, where would I feel most secure. And it is for that reason that I am going to save David."
Tim had already been in the bottom two of the show - which is also judged by Mel C, Jason Donovan and Dawn French - but managed to fend off Scottish singer Dirk Johnston.
