Catchphrase: “Dancing’s a completely different discipline to gymnastics, honest.”
Strengths: Backflips, good looks, post-London 2012 feelgood factor.
Weaknesses: Slightly cocky. Needs to knuckle down in training.
Who? Grimsby schoolgirl who’s impressed consistently so far and become a hot tip to win.
Styling: Retro frock, up-do, red lipstick to highlight her huge mouth.
Catchphrase: “I’m not dating George from Union J, I’m just concentrating on my music.”
