Dancing Wolverhampton grandparents going for BGT glory

By Megan Archer | Entertainment | Published:

Dancing grandparents David and Marg Thompson are ready to wow the world with their lively Latin dance routine on Britain’s Got Talent tonight.

The Black Country market traders are set to sizzle on stage in front of an audience of thousands – not to mention celebrity judge Simon Cowell.

The show is also due to be broadcast out on ITV to millions of viewers.

Trained by Wolverhampton’s Zig Zag Dance Factory, the Willenhall couple will be performing a comedic jive routine.

David, 61, said: “When they asked me to do it, I thought someone was pulling my leg at first. I said no but then I spoke to my children and they said we should go for it.”

Marg, 59, dons a stunning red Latin dress for the occasion. The couple have been dancing together for nearly three years.

Watch them at 8pm tonight on ITV.
