Jay Aston's Tribute to Lena
Lena was a true talent and an inspiration. She was in the next class to me at Italia Conti Academy Stage School.
At that time, there was big pressure to be slim. We shared the same condition.
Some of us recover, some needed more help than was available then.
I was asked to be on her last show as a backing dancer. The show was postponed, and that is the sole reason why I got Buck's Fizz as both work would have clashed.
It's tragic she didn't make it. Lena was a lovely kid and a huge talent.
