Danielle Rowe, 27, from Hornchurch, who is part of line dancing group Countryvive, was put through last night to the semi finals of the nationwide talent contest.

She said: “I’m really excited about getting through and just overwhelmed with it all.”

Danielle, who works at St Alban’s Catholic Primary School, in Heron Flight Avenue, Elm Park, started line dancing when she was 15, after her mum became a dance instructor.

She said: “Before, I thought it was really uncool and that it was all yeeha’s but when I saw this one dance called “the beast” which had lots of body ripples and the running man and I was like “I want to do that!”

Once she got on the line dancing circuit, taking part in competitions across the country, she met up with 18 other line dancers and eventually formed Countryvive.

The members of the dance act are from all different parts of the UK, including Blackpool, Ireland and Scotland so they have to practice their routines in small groups and then all meet up to put it all together.

She said: “It has been really hard as we are all from different places and it can look a bit messy at first but when we start practising, hopefully it will look great!”

Danielle, a teacher at St Alban’s Catholic Primary School, in Heron Fight Avenue, Elm Park, was “over the moon” when her group got four big fat yeses at the auditions and the group are now preparing themselves for tonight’s show.

She said: “We have got something a bit different about our routine tonight, it is still country but with a twist that I hope people will like!”

The first semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent is on ITV tonight at 7.30pm.
