STUDENTS at a Hampshire school were given a special performance when a television dance group paid them a visit.

Kai Widdrington, who is best known for competing in television talent show Britain’s Got Talent, returned to the Toynbee School with dancers from his new troupe Kings and Queens.

The 18-year-old former pupil from Eastleigh previously reached the finals of Britain’s Got Talent two years ago with partner Natalia Jeved.

The couple since split up so that Natalia could focus on her GCSEs but now Kai has returned with his new group.

His former dance teacher Lisa Thompson said: “I’m just privileged that he stays in touch with his school.

“He never forgets the teachers that taught him. He was always a pleasure to teach, so it’s just nice that he wants to come back and share his journey and his success with Toynbee.”

After performing for students, Kai and five members of his tenstrong group treated Year 10 pupils to a private Latin dance lesson.

Libby Kenley, 15, a Year 10 pupil from Chandler’s Ford said: “I think it’s really cool. It’s inspirational.

“The dance was good – I wish I could do that. I will be voting for them.”

Alicia Cummings, 15, a Year 10 pupil from Chandler’s Ford, said: “I think it was really good and it was fun because of the steps. I was really impressed.”
