Jacky Webbe is the UK’s premier Diana Ross Tribute Act and has performed all over the world at many prestigious events. However Jacky first came to light when she appeared on Opportunity Knocks with the late Les Dawson.
Following this, Jacky went on to support artistes such as Michael Barrymore, Elvis Costello and The 3 Degrees. She has also appeared with a variety of other celebrities.
Jacky Webbe first paid tribute to Diana Ross on “Stars in Their Eyes”. Since then she has been travelling nationally and internationally paying tribute to the first lady of Motown.
Since then, Jacky has performed regularly in Butlins and Pontins and at top hotels and functions throughout the UK. She has also appeared at major functions in Cyprus, Greece, Spain, Dubai and Norway. Jacky has also appeared on BBC, HTV and performing backing vocals for EMI records.
Her portrayal is said to be “second to none” and her reputation and professionalism have grown and precede her. Not only do the audiences warm to her personality, but Jacky’s voice and sparkling stage presence fully capture the essence Miss Ross. She is able to entertain in her own inimitable style flawlessly in her Diana Ross Tribute Act.
Jacky’s performance incorporates the sounds of Motown as well as the music of Diana Ross. However her set can also be an intimate performance of jazz, blues and swing for a more “laid-back” evening. (For this intimate setting a trio of musicians are usually used).
Her live performances feature mainly the music of Diana Ross, but Jacky incorporates other sounds of the Motown era throughout her performance. She interacts with the audience from start to finish, always surprising them when she in search of “a man for the night!!!”
Jacky has toured nationwide within the UK, performing in the best hotels and function suites as well as Jersey, Guernsey and Isle of Wight. She has regularly been asked to perform at prestige charity events including the NSPCC in London with the Duchess of York in attendance.
She has also performed as pre-match entertainment at Elan Road and for many other prestige football organisations. Including Chelsea Football Club, Manchester United, Leeds United and Norway’s premier division in Oslo.
Her tribute to Diana Ross has also led her to perform at Butlins Minehead, Skegness and Bognor Regis. Jacky is also a regular cabaret artiste at Warners Holiday Hotels, Haven, Pontins, Cambrian and Shearings Hotels. She has also performed on a variety of cruise liners, including Royal Caribbean, P&O and Ocean Village.
Jacky was invited to perform for the Sultan of Brunei and his family at his town house in Dorchester. She has entertained celebrities including Robert Palmer, Richard Whitely and Stuart Hall and Tom O’Connor. Channel 4’s Brookside, Coronation Street, and other television soaps at various corporate functions have been amazed with Jacky’s performances.
When asked about her “impersonation” of Diana Ross, Jacky’s answer is always the same: “I’m not an impersonator; I just pay tribute to her music.”
Her tribute does just that and more. It is an excellent show, suitable for all occasions and one not be missed!

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!

I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
