After the success of last year's Dancers in Need, the sold-out event proved just as popular.

People flocked to see Luke Deal and Georgina Wroe strut their lycra-clad stuff for an ABBA tribute, Foz and Bob's shortened 'Happy Hour' with BBC Suffolk's poet laureate Jane Mower, while Jon Wright and Graeme Mac joined up for a one-night-only spectacular.

Lesley Dolphin told folk tales of Suffolk and the dancing trio of Alison Acton, Kate Arkell and Linda Walker danced their way into the judge's favour.

But undoubtedly the most eagerly anticipated act of the night came from early bird Rob Dunger performing his full monty with the backing of the Ipswich Operatic and Dramatic Society.

Compere for the evening was Mark Murphy and commenting on their colleague's talent, or lack of it, were Bryan Knights and Foz, in the judge's seats.

Also wowing the audience with his jaw-dropping tricks was magician Michael J Fitch as well as the Co-op Juniors, dance group Streetwise Inc and Buddy Holly tribute 'Rave On'.
