A NINE-year-old boy from Bournemouth starred as part of a group that got a golden buzzer on Britain’s Got Talent at the weekend.

Teddy Holton-Frances took to the stage with dance company Phoenix Boys on Saturday night’s BGT.

The group features members from across the UK and saw dance legend Bruno Tonioli hit the golden buzzer sending them through to the semi-finals.

An emotional Bruno said the group reminded him of being a young male dancer, with members of the group saying how getting a standing ovation and the gold was a ‘surreal experience’.

Bournemouth Echo: Teddy has also starred in the John Lewis Christmas Advert

Teddy said: “Receiving the golden buzzer was a dream come true. It made me jump it was so loud.

“I just couldn’t believe it. I still can’t believe it happened.”

Teddy trains at Pure Drama Theatre School and Prompt Corner Academy of Dance and attends Avonwood Primary School.

Teddy also starred in John Lewis’ Christmas advert last year, along with short films and other adverts.

Teddy can’t wait to perform live to the nation in a few weeks with his friends from the group.

Phoenix Boys is a dance associate programme that runs in London, Manchester and Birmingham.

It provides training to budding male dancers with no audition to be involved. For more information, visit the company’s website or social media.
