Living the Dream joined Dermot on his 24 Comic Relief 'Danceathon'


A team from a performing arts group joined celebrity presenter Dermot O’Leary during his 24 hour Danceathon for Comic Relief.

Both professional dancers and students from Living the Dream’s School of Performing Arts, based in St Albans, were spotted during the 24 hour dancing stint.

They surprised Dermot with an Uptown Funk flashmob and then a freestyle dance off.

Zoe Jackson, director of Living the Dream, said: “We were so honoured to have been part of it for such a great cause and especially to be there for his last two hours and celebration finale moment.

“Dermot called us his ‘dancing secret agents’ and told us we gave him the energy to keep going.”

He raised £643,336 for Comic Relief and was joined by famous faces across the event including Jamie Oliver, Dam Smith, Nick Grimshaw, Rufus Hound, and Keith Lemon to name a few.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
