No, he's not. As I've posted before the judges comprise John Barrowman, Denise Van Outen, Barry Humphries and ALW. Cameron and ALW will choose the boys to play Oliver. I did read that Cameron will appear in the studio in for the semi-final and final.

Presumably they'll be asked to show their suitability for the role by singing songs associated with Aretha Franklin, Madonna and Kiri Te Kanewa. Or songs from The Lion King.

I always thought that "Oliver" was supposed to be a family show!!
And who could see that the road would twist

Surely the point of Oliver is that he isn't streetwise and struggles to handle the environment he finds himself in?
Not neccessarily. I think he's probably not hugely streetwise having begun life in a workhouse but I think he is a tough little trooper. He has the guts to approach Mr Bumble who he should be terrified of and ask for more, he doesn't hesistate to try and beat up Noah Claypole and then have a screaming match with Mrs Sowerberry, he runs off to London on his own, fits easily in with this tough crowd of theives and makes a good attemopt at standing up to Bill Sykes, the most feared man in London. I think that would suggest that he's quite tough and not a weedly little irritant as portrayed in the musical film.
I don't know what Dickens originally intended as I've not yet read the book.
