A GIRL from Widnes has been selected to be in a new girl band during isolation.

Britani Humphries, 21, alongside four other girls have formed Girl Tonic and are ready and waiting to release their first charity single.

Connie (22), Britani (21), Nicole (21), Bethany (22) and Eleanor (24) were formed early this year, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, rehearsing from the studio has been replaced by Zoom time.

Britani, who is studying teaching at Riverside College and has appeared on the X Factor as part of previous band called Girl Next Door, said: "I have always sang. Whenever I went on holiday I would be up doing karaoke.

"I seen a star online ad for singers and went for the audition and got the part.

"I didn't know any of the girls before but we get on really well as each of us bring something new to the group which is relatable to everyone."

She added: "I love Little Mix and the Spice Girls and what they stand for and we want to get the message across that you can do what you want to do.

"We can't wait to get up and running."

Girl Tonic are produced by pop hit maker Eliot Kennedy - the man behind the smash hit singles of pop royalty including Spice Girls, Take That and Boyzone, and managed by former Notts County football club chairman and entrepreneur Alan Hardy and entertainment and pop guru Leighton James.

Choreographing the ladies will be Danielle Everdell who has worked with the likes of Nicole Scherzinger and Olly Murs.

Manager Leighton James said: "Girl Tonic are five multi-talented girls who are set to take the crown from Little Mix as the UK number one girl band and we have put a team in place of the best people in pop to give them the very best chance of success."

It seems the girls have the perfect recipe for pop success already in the bag.

The girls' first single due for release in the summer is described as a fresh, feel-good, sing-a-long pure pop song.
