Lucy Speed, the actress who plays Natalie Evans in Eastenders, will be judging the Fancy Dress Pairs Relay at Olympia during the Sunday evening performance (17 December).

The Fancy Dress Pairs Relay, supported this year by Horse magazine, enables the audience to see their favourite international riders in a totally new light.

Audiences have previously been treated to a unique rendition of Tina Turner’s ‘Simply The Best’ by John Whitaker and Geoff Billington. Other fancy dress subjects haveincluded various television shows from Blind Date and Ground Force.

Lucy, famous for her part as the long-suffering wife of Barry in the hit TV soap, will be judging each pair on their humour value and their costumes.
