A WIDNES teenager is one step closer to being named BBC One's The Greatest Dancer.

Harrison Vaughan,who attended Holy Family Catholic Primary School, impressed the live audience of the BBC reality show on Saturday night.

His coach Matthew Morrison, from Glee, and fellow judges Cheryl, Todrick Hall and Otiwere also wowed by his performance.

Harrison, who lives in Upton Grange, is in one of the final 12 dance acts who will compete for The Greatest Dancer crown.

The dance talent show sees dancers of any age and dance style compete to win £50,000 and a chance to perform on Strictly Come Dancing.

Harrison's aunt Stacia Lucas said: "Harrison would like to say the biggest thank you to everyone who watched and voted for him on Saturday night, he’s having the best time and is loving performing on the live shows. He really doesn't want it to end. 

"The competition is really tough this year and another two acts will be eliminated this Saturday so we need the whole of Widnes, Cheshire and Liverpool to get behind Harrison." 

Harrison's mum Cheryl Lucas said: "I am just so proud of Harrison.

"He has worked his whole life for this, he has been dancing and singing from such a young age and I just hope he goes and has the best experience in the live shows."

The show continues on Saturday.
