TWO Ipswich sisters scooped top marks in a talent competition – but there could only be one winner.

By sheer coincidence Laura Lucock, 16 and her sister Rachel, 12 years, got the same marks in the Star for Tomorrow Competition while on holiday at The Haven, Cherry Tree, Great Yarmouth.

TWO Ipswich sisters scooped top marks in a talent competition – but there could only be one winner.

By sheer coincidence Laura Lucock, 16 and her sister Rachel, 12 years, got the same marks in the Star for Tomorrow Competition while on holiday at The Haven, Cherry Tree, Great Yarmouth.

But as only one person could go through to the semi-final Rachel, who wooed judges with her version of Martine McCutcheon's Perfect Moment, was picked to perform again in the Norfolk resort.

The Copleston High School pupils will enjoy a family holiday at The Haven but will have to cut their stay short to fit in with their rehearsals for the Co-op Junior's production of Wizard of Oz.

Their mum Tracey, 40, of Elmhurst Drive, said: "The judges had absolutely no idea they were sisters. They do enjoy singing and performing and it was obvious the crowd were really enjoying it."

Rachel had another surprise when she got home.

She received a letter offering her a second year of scholarship for ballet at Northgate Performing Arts.
