TNBTs: the stars of 2012 (Red Pages Hot 100)

The Red Pages Hot 100 2012 list is out today!

At the end of every year, the celeb directory creates a list of the names to watch out for the following year. You can see my posts on the last two years here:

2010 – Justin Bieber and Tinie Tempah were listed as ones to watch…

2011 – Emeli Sande and Loick Essien were two of the names on the list

So, who is set to make it big next year?

Here’s the full list:

And here are the ones that stand out for me:

Alexandra Roach – Plays a young Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady. One to watch according to Screen International and The Independent

Amal Fashanu – John Fashanu’s daughter. Fronting a BBC documentary on homophobia in football, so expect a fair bit of publicity around the show.

AnGel - Singer-songwriter, written for Pixie Lott and Jason DeRulo, toured with Keri Hilson and Wretch 32. Nominee for MTV's Brand New for 2012.

Anthony Joshua – A 2012 list wouldn’t be complete without an Olympic hopeful. Anthony Joshua is a boxer from London, hoping for gold next summer.
