An 11-year-old schoolgirl from Exmouth hopes her fancy footwork will impress TV judges when she auditions for Britain’s Got Talent.

Bramdean School pupil Scarlett Dobinson hopes to follow in the footsteps of George Sampson and Diversity when she shows off her dancing skills to Michael McIntyre, Amanda Holden and David Hasselhoff in Cardiff.

Scarlett has taken part in preliminary rounds and the outcome of her audition will remain secret until spring when the show is broadcast.

Her mother, Cheryl, said: “Dancing seems to run in the family. She decided to take an audition herself after watching the show.”

The youngster, a pupil at Bramdeam for three years, won both the tap and modern competitions at the 2010 Exeter Dance Festival and has been dancing since the age of three in ballet, performed a modern dance for her TV audition.
