A trio of sisters from Blackpool auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent 2012 with a bizarre mix of accordion and guitar playing, it has been revealed.
New Romany’s - made up of sisters Nancy, Sarah Jane, and Julie - performed for the judges including Simon Cowell earlier this year.
It was the first time that auditions took place in the city since 2009, and locals were glad to have the show back in town.
Mum of the sisters, Julie, told the Blackpool Gazette that the family was looking forward to seeing the group on TV.
“The girls have been very excited since the auditions," she said. “I was in the audience watching so felt quite nervous when they walked on to face the judges but I was very proud of them.
“They’ve been working very hard since then and we are looking forward to seeing the show on TV.
“I know lots of filming was done in Blackpool because of the auditions so hopefully the whole country will get to see footage of how much better the town is looking.”
Britain's Got Talent 2012 starts this Saturday on ITV1.
