Diversity headed for big screen?

Diversity could be set for the big screen, to feature in a stand-alone film.

The dance troupe, who won Britain's Got Talent in 2009, already made their movie debut in StreetDance 3D, which has left them wanting more.

Lead choreographer Ashley Banjo hinted: "The film thing for us is closer than people expect, and I'm pretty sure it will happen in the near future."

The 22-year-old also teased that the group would be participating in the 2012 Olympics, but refused to divulge further details.

"I can't confirm yet, but as a group we're definitely going to be involved in the Olympics in a performance sense," he said.

Ashley - who will be embarking on a tour next year - is astounded by the continuing popularity of Diversity.

"I'm quite confident that people would always enjoy us, whether we were popular or not, but since Britain's Got Talent it's been like a snowball effect; it's been more and more popular," he said.

"That proves the public really enjoy what we do, because it's more than two years now since the show (Britain's Got Talent) and we're about to embark on our biggest tour yet, not our smallest one. That's a good sign when the public keep coming back for more."
