After Dinner & Event Speaker (in association with SpeakOut!)
Later that year Claire became the new face of Marks & Spencer's lingerie which probably did no harm when she was later nominated and named 'Rear Of The Year'. She then accepted a contract to present ITV's 'Challenge Of A Lifetime' programme where she invited members of the public to come face to face with their phobias by completing daredevil stunts. The twist in this programme was Claire had to complete the challenge if the contestant decided they could not do it. This saw her doing some hair raisng feats which endeared her to the public even more.
2002 saw Claire Sweeney replace Denise Van Outen as Roxie Hart in the hit musical Chicago and later in 2006 Claire took on the role of Miss Adelaide alongside Dirty Dancing legend Patrick Swayze in the sell out hit production of Guys & Dolls at London's Piccadilly Theatre. Dancing was another talent that Miss Sweeney was now making herself known for.
In 2005 Claire showed of these dancing talents when she appeared as the hot favourite in the very first series of BBC1s Strictly Come Dancing. She managed to get through most of the heats but was eventually knocked out and the competition was won by BBC newreader Natasha Kaplinsky
Other TV work for Claire included 'Here Comes the Sun', a Saturday night entertainment show which aired on BBC1, Daytime shows 'A Week in the West End' for the BBC and 'Loose Women' for ITV1. Claire also presented '60 Minute Makeover' for ITV1.
With her outstanding singing talent she released a solo album in 2002 'Claire' and a follow up single 'When you Believe'. Claire's album also covered a Queen song 'Too Much Love Will Kill You' in which she worked and featured with Queen guitarist, Brian May.
A workout DVD came out in 2005 'Claire Sweeney - Perfect Fit With Weight Watchers' This DVD quickly became a best seller and still features in the DVD charts.
Liverpool is again seeing a lot more of Claire as she spends more time there. At the end of October this year, she opened two purpose-built flats on the neonatal intensive care unit at Liverpool Women's hospital which are designed for parents who have sick or premature babys at the hospital, to stay close.
