Inside Blackpool Dance Festival: Strictly-style finalists get inspired

Shots! TV went for a look inside the Blackpool Dance Festival - and took two aspiring twinkle-toes along for a bit of inspiration.

Claire and Linda, both novice dancers, have spent several weeks in intensive training to prepare for a Strictly-style showdown at the world-famous Winter Gardens.

On Friday 14 June, the two ladies will compete in Dance Floor Heroes - a glittering night of dance and entertainment to raise money for mental health charity Tias Crown. Tickets are available at
