Bakewell Young Farmers have danced their way to first place at the National YFC Dance Competition in Blackpool.

And the star guest judge was left bedazzled by their jazz dance routine.

Strictly Come Dancing star Matt Baker made a surprise appearance as one of four judges for the grand final of the event at Blackpool Winter Gardens Ballroom, on Saturday, May 7.

The One Show and Countryfile presenter is also the new President of the National Federation of Young Farmers’ Club.

Bakewell YFC Team took first prize at the competition with their jazz dance routine. They brought the house down, seeing off teams from Yorkshire, Cumbria, Devon, Herefordshire, Wiltshire and Wales in the final, bringing to an end months of practise.

A spokeswoman for the Bakewell Young Farmers said: “They have all worked really hard to perfect their jazz dance routine, Louisa is extremely talented, being able to choreograph this team of six and the three boys, none of whom had any previous dance skills. We are all very proud of them. Well done.”
