Nigel Lythgoe

20-year-old Bethany Whittle was forced to quit college after injuring her back, and with doctors advising her she'd never be able to dance again, it seemed as though her dreams of stardom were over. After multiple operations and months of painful recovery however, Bethany is now more determined than ever to suceed.

Talking about the show, Bethany tells the camera: "I want to audition for the judges because I want to know if I was right in that I didn’t give up and kept on going."

Watch a clip from Bethany's audition below, and be sure to check out the new series of So You Think You Can Dance from 7:10PM tomorrow on BBC One.
