Last summer, their founder and choreographer Omar Awuah sent in a video audition to the producers and they were chosen to perform on the show.

The dance group have performed across Europe and worldwide, training between two and five times a week.

Evie said: "I love dancing so much and have danced since I was five-years-old.

"I am so excited to have been given this opportunity.

"I watched series one and loved it as they are all children.

"We trained very hard for this performance but also had the best time ever.
"I love my dance family so it doesn't feel like hard work and we were treated like celebrities at the TV studios.

"I loved chatting to Dawn French, she was so funny."

Evie lives in Palm Bay with her parents and two sisters.

Mum Susan said: "We couldn't be more excited and proud of Evie and Kid Squad.

"They all deserve to have a platform to show off their hard work and a great TV show like this is perfect."

Little Big Shots UK series 2 featuring Kid Squad will be on tonight on ITV1 at 7pm.
