However, the family now have the problem needing to be in two places at once because the finals are scheduled for the SAME day, hundreds of miles apart.

“It’s fantastic that they are both reaching this level of success, but the clash of competitions has presented us with quite a challenge,” said mum, Lauren.

Both are keen members of the popular Kirkcaldy-based NRJ Dance Studio where the pair have been dancing and competing virtually non stop for the past two-and-a-half years.

“We only found out about the selection for the TV final a few weeks ago when we went over for what we thought was just another audition,” Lauren added.

“However, STV did a big reveal and hearing that Lennox was selected left us all stunned.

“Everyone is so proud of what the pair have achieved, they train almost every day and are never still.

“Despite not being there to cheer each other on they are determined to give it their best shot.”
