AFTER performing to nearly 20 million viewers on the final of Britain's Got talent, show winners Diversity had an audience with a much smaller group this week - five students from a Suffolk school.

The group of youngsters from Old Buckenham Hall School, near Brettenham, were in London for a behind-the-scenes visit to the ITV studios on Monday.

They were being shown around the set of This Morning when the Essex-based dance group turned up as guests and spent time talking with the students.

The Diversity guys were being interviewed by Fern Britton and Phillip Schofield and spent time talking about how there lives were set to change after dancing their way to victory over firm favourite Susan Boyle.

The pupils from Brettenham chatted to Diversity and learnt that the key to success was to work closely as a team - the members of the group are all close friends and in some cases brothers, and together they work hard to support each other.

Deputy Headmaster Chris Schanschieff, who accompanied the youngsters on the trip, said: “The children were excited to be going behind the scenes of a TV Studio to learn more about editing and filming.

“But meeting Diversity, some of whom are the same age as the pupils, and having the opportunity to share in their success was an added benefit to them all.”

Following the excitement and glamour of the television studio, the Year 8 Scholars were then taken on a trip to the Bank of England.
