A dancer from Dereham showcased his skills to the country on Tuesday evening, as he performed at the National Television Awards 2018.

Luke Miller, who has been dancing since he was a toddler, accompanied Strictly star Shirley Ballas on stage to give out the Best Presenter award.

Dressed to impress, the pair strutted their stuff, undertaking a mixture of ballroom and Latin dance moves.

Mr Miller, 21 said: “The NTAs approached me and asked if I wanted to dance with Shirley and of course I said yes.

“I’ve been dancing since I was two or three and have had lessons with Shirley, she’s a family friend, so it was an amazing opportunity to dance her on to the stage.”

Following on from his TV appearance, the talented dancer is juggling preparation for upcoming competitions with coaching at his family’s Norwich-based studios, Miller Dance.

He said: “I’ve got a lot of competitions coming up with my dance partner, Ellie Beacock, including European Championships. There’s a lot going on and it’s all very exciting.”
