Three talented Northern Ireland teenagers are in the running to be crowned The Greatest Dancer on the popular BBC One show.

Sisters Abbie (16), Cassie (14) and 12-year-old Evie Cassells from Conlig, Co Down are competing alongside 13 other girls from Stockport-based dance school, Vale Studios.

The three teenagers, who attend Bangor Academy, have been active in local dance and amateur dramatics over recent years.

Hoping to discover The Greatest Dancer are former Girls Aloud star Cheryl, Broadway and Glee star Matthew Morrison and Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse.

Mabuse is captaining Vale.

The series is hosted by singer, rapper and former Strictly Champion Alesha Dixon and Jordan Banjo, member of multi-award winning dance troupe Diversity.

At the auditions the audience hold the power. If 75% approve that groups progresses through the competition.

Last week, dance troupe Vale impressed both the audience and the judges with their blindfolded routine which put them through to the next round.

After making it to the final 12, the girls will travel to London to perform in the live shows on Saturday night in a bid to win over the public vote to make it through to next stage in the competition.

The winner of the show will take home a £50,000 prize and the chance to perform in the next series of Strictly Come Dancing.

The Greatest Dancer continues on BBC One on Saturday at 6.30pm.
