DANCING queens Siobhan and Shannon Bedford are celebrating today after winning a total of four holidays for their family.

The sister act from Rands Way, Ipswich, made formidable contestants when they entered two talent competitions each at Haven's Seashore resort in Great Yarmouth.

The all-singing all-dancing duo scooped all four prizes, and has now been invited back to the finals in October.

Siobhan, 13, sang Bryan Adams hit 'Everything I do' to beat off 11 rivals, and Shannon, aged seven, sang Cabaret on her first solo stage performance.

"I wasn't scared," she said, "I enjoyed it."

Both girls danced as well as sang during the contests.

Proud mum Karen was not surprised at the success, as Siobhan has won contests before, including last year's Reach for a Star competition at Tower Ramparts, and said: "They did do really well."

Both girls also won tickets to the 'Reach Out' concert at Norfolk Showground in September.
