SHE’S a fire-eater...

SHE’S a fire-eater...

Meet Laura Gregory. You might have seen her munching and blowing flames at Sheffield’s Embrace nightclub but now she’s to show off her sparky party routine for a more intimate audience: her worried mam.

The 23-year-old will take the heat at her ma’s 50th birthday party when she shows off her fire-eating skills for dozens of family and friends.

“My mum wanted entertainment to keep the guests amused,” says Laura, of Whitehill Road, Brinsworth, Rotherham. “And I just thought: I can be the entertainment. Mum’s seen me do it before but I think she’s always a little on the edge of her seat – but it’s an absolutely safe trick. Anyone can do it with a bit of training.”

How modest. Certainly you wouldn’t find your Diarist agreeing to attempt the indigestion-inducing act.

“I was with an entertainment agency and some of the girls did fire-eating so I jumped at the chance when they offered to train me,” says the former Aston Comprehensive School pupil. “I’ve done loads of gigs now - corporate events, nightclubs, you name it - and people always seem impressed, but this will be my first family show.”
