Here’s Pop Idol winner Will Young swimming along the Saltdean coastline in the video for his 2003 hit ‘Friday’s Child’.
In the pop video Will is on a cross channel swim and reaches his destination – a French beach which looks exactly like ours in Saltdean, with a Whitecliffs Cafe draped in tricolours!
The Saltdean clip starts 3.03 minutes in. There’s a crowd of people on the beach in front of the Whitecliffs Cafe. Were you one of those who featured in the video? If so, please let us know your memory of the day.
