TV stardom for Eddie's Angels


* Eddie's Angels appear on Sky TV's Got to Dance show at 6pm on Sunday.
 
 
Millions of viewers will see a Llangollen-based dance group put in a gold star performance on TV tomorrow (Sunday) evening.

Eddie’s Angels are a strictly-for-fun outfit which meets every Monday morning in the Town Hall under the instruction of local dance teacher and choreographer Julie Thomas.
The oldest member of the group – and the man from whom it takes its name – is 97-year-old Eddie Clark – who drives himself in from Minera Mountain for the weekly sessions.
Also in the group is Eddie’s daughter Deborah Smith from Erddig and other  members come from Ruabon, Wrexham, Acrefair, Cefn, Chirk, Bala and Oswestry.
Tomorrow night, Eddie’s Angels will be featured in Sky TV’s Got to Dance programme, starting at 6pm.
Members of the troupe along with their friends and supporters will gather in The Bridge End Hotel, Llangollen, to watch the performance on a large flat screen TV upstairs in the function room from 6-8pm.
Julie Thomas said: “We got three gold stars from the judges, Ashley Banjo, Kimberly Wyatt and Aston from JLS, plus a standing ovation from them and the 700-strong audience.

“Eddie is a sprightly 97 year old and his daughter Deb is also dancing, along with our oldest Angel,  81-year-old Jean Gardiner. I am so proud of them.
“There's 20 of us to watch out for and we are definitely the novelty act, so please come and join us to enjoy this amazing dance show.”
