Britain's Got Talent 2012: Strictly Wheels perform 'Wheelchair Dancesport'

Strictly Wheels - Britain's Got Talent 2012

Dancing duo Strictly Wheels are set to become the first Wheelchair dance act on Britain's Got Talent this evening.

The duo - made up of good friends Gary and Paula - formed 18 months ago.

39-year-old Gary and 41-year-old Paula have been friends for 10 years, but only discovered their dancing ability on a visit to the pub.

Gary explains: "We do loads together, we had a few pints then got on the dance floor, now we've been dancing together for 18 months."

Speaking about her health, wheelchair bound Paula reveals: "17 years ago I contracted MRSA when I had pneumonia, and that damaged by pelvis and spine. I've been in a wheelchair for eight years."

The pair takes to the stage and burst into an energetic routine to Alicia Keys hit Empire State Of Mind, but will it be enough to impress the judges?

Britain’s Got Talent 2012 airs at 8PM on ITV1 tonight.
