A DANCER from Middlewich is set to appear on the telly.

The Britain’s Got Talent live shows are here, with semi-finals taking place at 8pm every night this week.

Among those hoping to book a place in Sunday’s grand final is former Middlewich High School pupil, Daniel Jackson.

Daniel will be performing with the all-male dance troupe, Phoenix Boys, tonight (Thursday) after they impressed Bruno Tonioli in their audition, earning a golden buzzer.

The former Strictly judge said: “People don’t really understand how hard it is to succeed as a dancer.

“The work that goes into it and the passion and literally you do it for nothing, you do it for love and I felt that.”

If all goes well in the semis, former Il Padrino employee Daniel will be back on the stage in Sunday’s final, which starts at 7.30pm on ITV 1.
