A TEAM of Scarborough gymnasts are jumping for joy after getting through to the TV audition stage on Britain’s Got Talent.
The youngsters from Scarborough Gymnastics Academy now face a nail-biting performance in front of judges Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden.
The audition will be filmed for the ITV show but it is not yet known which auditions will be broadcast.
Coach Nikii Walker said: “They have done brilliantly to get this far and they are so excited – the girls said getting through to this stage was the best Christmas present ever!
“They have been working on perfecting their routine, so hopefully it will be one of the performances which stands out and is shown on TV.”
The team of 18 gymnasts, aged between eight and 16, will travel to The Journal Tyne Theatre in Newcastle for filming on Saturday January 30.
Miss Walker said: “I think what they’ve achieved is brilliant. It’s something a bit different and they’re having a lot of fun.
“The main competition prize is £100,000, but really the girls are happy just to be taking part.”
If the team gets a “yes” vote from each of the three celebrity judges, they will make it through to the next round of the contest.
The programme invites people of all ages to showcase their talents and has featured performers of all kinds, including singers, dancers and magicians.
