A TALENTED dancer has landed a place in the final of a TV talent show.

Darren Mitchell (15), from Auchinairn, is set to face a judging panel including Diversity’s Ashley Banjo, former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt and West End star Adam Garcia - in the final of Sky One’s Got to Dance on March 4.

The Bishopbriggs Academy pupil reached the final as one of 17 dancers with Dancepoint’s Fear of the Unknown.

Darren started dancing just five years ago and has covered a variety of styles including jazz, hip hop, contemporary, street and disco.

He said: “It is exciting to be in the final, but we’ve really only had three weeks since the semi-final to come up with a new routine.”
