Diversity dance crew to host one-off TV show

Diversity - yes, the dance troupe who defeated Susan Boyle to win Britain’s Got Talent back in 2009 - have been recruited to host a new one-off dance entertainment show on ITV later this year.

Named Diversity Steal The Show, the programme will give amateur dancers a chance to get their talents on-screen and entertain the nation. At the end, a "show-stopping finale performance" will see the dancer who impresses the most officially 'steal the show' and win a major prize.

The whole thing will be choreographed by Diversity frontman Ashley Banjo, who promises celebrity appearances, collaborations, and other surprises.

"We can't wait to start working with ITV on this show," he said. "Not only do we get to create breathtaking performances and collaborations, but we also get to pull pranks, have fun and show that you don't have to be a professional dancer to Steal The Show."

Siobhan Greene of ITV added: "Diversity are national treasures and it feels so good to bottle their talent by putting their infectious energy and spirit on the screen. With their help they will in turn give ITV viewers the opportunity to have the moment of a lifetime."

It's a good year for Ashley, actually - he's also been taken on as a judge in a new talent competition called Dance, Dance, Dance, which we think might be about dancing.

ITV says the Diversity Steal The Show will air "at the end of the year" - we reckon it'll pop up some time around Christmas.
