THE culmination of an academy run by Portsmouth pop stars Same Difference will come to a head this weekend.

All week youngsters aged seven to 16 have been learning dance and performance skills from brother and sister duo Sean and Sarah Smith.

The pair rose to fame after appearing on ITV talent show The X Factor.

Sarah, of Widley, said: ‘We think there is a lot of young talent out there and it’s exciting for us to help young people to nurture their talents. Hopefully we have found some stars of the future.’

A end-of-academy show takes place on Sunday at Admiral Lord Nelson School, Portsmouth, from 6.30pm.

Friends and family are invited to attend.
