A DANCER has made it through to the next round of a popular television talent competition.

Charlie Bruce, 19, from Beckenham, is the youngest dancer in the BBC talent show So You Think You Can Dance.

Her jazz dance performance saw her as one of just 12 contestants to go through to the next round of the competition hosted by Cat Deeley.

Miss Bruce, who started dancing at the age of three and started training from the age of seven, said: "I am so eager to show everyone what I can do.

"I am grateful that I have this opportunity to turn around to Britain and go 'look this is what Charlie Bruce is all about'.

"I am really so ecstatic to be here and show everyone what I can do."

In this Saturday's episode at 6.30pm on BBC1, Miss Bruce must impress judges Nigel Lythgoe, Arlene Phillips, Louise Redknapp and Sisco Gomez as she is coupled with a male dancer to perform routines to a variety of genres.

One male and one female is voted out each week in the race to win £100,000 and the chance to dance on So You Think You Can Dance in Hollywood.
