A teenage dance prodigy and his crew has missed out on the top prize of £250,000 on a TV talent show after making it to the final.

Mike McNeish, 18, of Hainault - one-fifth of dance group Boyband - impressed on Sky One’s Got To Dance contest but didn’t make the final cut on Friday’s episode.

The dance collective put together a slick routine to a musical medley including Disclosure and Sam Smith’s Latch and a Jackson 5 I Want You Back remix.

Nine acts made it to the final, with a top three - including eventual winners Duplic8 - being selected by judges.

The boys impressed judge and dance group Diversity founder Ashley Banjo earlier in the competition and made it to Team Ashley.

Mike said: “Working with Ashley has been amazing he’s taught us some great stuff. Being on the show was a fun experience, we met a lot of amazing people and we just had a good time.”

Boyband faced highs and lows on the show as they lost group member Corey Culverwell to an injury while rehearsing.

Mike added: “Me and the boys are really strong - it was disappointing to not win but it happens and we’ve got to get on with it as a crew.

“We’re definitely much closer and tighter as friends now.”
