Bobtown's Brad dances a blinder

THE mother of a performer from Roberttown says she is "bursting with pride" after her son's dance troupe broke records on BBC show 'The Greatest Dancer'.

Rachel Walmsley, mum of Bradley Walmsley, was in the audience on Saturday to watch the 21-year-old perform as part of the Brothers of Dance group.

And they received the highest audience vote in the history of the programme with their Peaky Blinders-inspired performance – a huge 97.8 per cent which saw them through to the next round of the live finals.

Rachel, who founded Timestep Community Dance in Heckmondwike, said: "I'm bursting with pride, all his hard work and dedication is paying off.

"Brothers of Dance are showing that boys can dance too, they are definitely inspiring other lads to fulfil their dreams of performing."

The dance group is made up of nine boys from across the country and was put together especially for the show.

Mentored by former Girls Aloud singer Cheryl, the boys could bag £50,000 if they win the whole competition.

They'll be performing again tomorrow (Saturday, 6.30pm BBC One) and Rachel is urging all local fans to support the talented dance troupe.
