Tegan Williams (11) is one of four young dancers chosen to join the mega star on stage on Sunday night at his show in Glasgow.

A video of Tegan busting her moves was sent in to a competition organised through Justin's UK Purpose tour by her dance teacher, Lorna Jackson-Digger.

It was among at least 200,000 audition tapes sent in by young hopefuls desperate to dance with their idol.

So, when news came through that Tegan, a student at Unity College, was one of the lucky four, her family went wild with delight.

Dad Gareth Williams said: "Tegan rang me at work and she was screaming down the phone. I couldn't understand her at first and I thought something was wrong.

"She couldn't speak for crying as she was so happy and when she told me what had happened I thought it was a joke at first."

But it was no joke and Tegan, who dances at Energize with a team called Fierce, was sent a video of a dance routine she has to learn in time for the concert.

Gareth added: "Tegan has been practising the routine like mad. This is a dream come true for Tegan as she is a big fan of Justin so to get the opportunity to dance with him is just fantastic.

"We are so proud of her and cannot wait to see her on stage. This is the proudest moment of our lives."

Tegan will be dancing to the song Children and proudly watching her in the audience will be her dad, mum Billie Jo Fallows, her stepmum, Kirsty Fielden, her aunt, Jade Williams and of course, dance instructor Lorna.

Gareth said: "Tegan has been dancing since was two and she loves it.

"We want to thank Lorna for helping to make Tegan the confident and exceptional dancer she is today. Lorna is a world class and inspirational dance teacher and person."

The chance to dance with her idol will be an early birthday present for Tegan who turns 12 in November. Gareth had been trying to get tickets for her to see Justin but all the UK venues were sold out.

He said: "Not only will she get to see him for her birthday she will be dancing with him on stage. It will be an unforgettable moment."
