An Ilford member of dance crew has missed out on the top prize after Lukas McFarlane was announced as the winner of Sky 1’s Got To Dance competition.

The show, which crowned the 19-year-old Londoner as the winner last night, aims to find the best dancers in the UK.

Christopher Balbastro, of IMD, was in with a chance of winning £250,000 with his fellow dancers in the live final but failed to get enough public votes.

The troupe, who are all aged between 11 and 16, got through to the final last month during a live semi final.

The hip-hop group were told early on that their talent was rare to see by judge Aston Merrygold from JLS, especially because of the age of the youngest members.

Ruff Diamond and Gymtasia Revolution were voted into the final three.
