Kings and Queens perform at the Britain's Got Talent auditions

Latin dancing group Kings and Queens hope to bring some spice to the last Britain's Got Talent semi-final of this series.

The dance troupe, made up of several Latin dancing couples - including Kerri Donalson whose parents own the Diamond Dance Centre in North Camp - got judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams hot under the collar after a show-stopping audition.

Now the group hopes to dazzle at the fifth and final live semi which airs on ITV at 7.30pm on Saturday.

Kerri, who now lives in Farnham, grew up at the Diamond Dance Centre, in Queens Road, which has been run by her parents Colin and Jacqui Donaldson for the past 47 years.

Mr and Mrs Donaldson will be attending the semi-final, but supporters who could not get a ticket will be watching live on a screen at the centre.

Kings and Queens will be battle it out against teen singer-songwriter Bailey McConnell, swing group Jack Pack, comedian Jenson Zhu, singer Andrew Derbyshire, dancer Kieran Lai, drag act La Voix and the London Gay Big Band, and singing duo Peat Loaf and Elaine. All eight acts will be vying for the final two spots to make it through to the finals.

Surrey violinist Lettice Rowbotham, singing-rapping duo Bars & Melody, opera singer Lucy Kay, dancers Yanis Marshall, Arnaud & Mehdi, singer James Smith, dancers The Addict Initiative, illusionist Darcey Oake and boyband Collabro have already made it through to the final.
