Rod Stewart And Tina Turner In City Face-off

A Coventry entertainment venue has stepped into a family row over which member of a husband and wife couple is 'Simply the Best'.

Jumpin Jaks booked Gerry Trew, a Rod Stewart tribute, and Tina Turner act Nova Casper to appear in February without realising the two were married.

The Barnsley-based couple appear all over the country as sound-a-likes of the chart-toppers and are amongst the most highly rated singers on the circuit.

Jaks manager Andrew MacLeod admitted that he was surprised to hear they were married but believes it will give staff and customers scope for fun.

He said:

"We were thinking of getting our entertainment manager CJ to get a cheerometer set up to see which one of the couple is rated the highest by Coventry party-goers.

"We don't want to cause any domestics and hopefully the result won't leave one of the peroxide blonde wigs residing in the spare bedroom!"

Mr Trew, who has been performing as Rod Stewart for several years, revealed that the couple are often the subject of jokes about what dinner must be like in their house.

He said:

"People imagine that Rod Stewart and Tina Turner would be one of the most fiery combinations in real life so they think that is what our relationship is like.

"I have been asked whether we perform on alternate nights so we can share the same wig - its all good fun."

The Rod Stewart show will be held on Wednesday 7 February with Nova Casper appearing as Tina Turner on 28 February.
