DINERS at a 1940s tea room were serenaded by a stunning pitch-perfect trio as they enjoyed their tea and scones.

The Three Belles – Izzie Moore, Sally Anne and Anneka Wass – surprised customers at 19 Four Teas in West Street, Havant, where they filmed a promotional video.

The former University of Portsmouth students are taking the world by storm with their Andrews Sisters-inspired act.

Tea shop owners Pauline Smith and Jacqui Unal are huge fans of the era and their tea rooms – which opened in December – have proven a big success.

They were delighted when the Three Belles asked if they could launch their new album In Full Swing at the decorated venue which is full of memorabilia, including military uniforms, pictures and ornaments from the era.

Dressed in her landgirl outfit, Pauline said: ‘I absolutely love the Three Belles – so much 
so that they played at my wedding.

‘They contacted me and said they would love to use the tea rooms to shoot a video.

‘The customers thought they were just wonderful. It was fabulous.

‘They fitted in perfectly and we’re so proud to be able to say they’ve performed here.’

After signing copies of the new album the girls broke out into song.

The first number Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy had customers clicking their fingers and stamping their feet.

And Apple Blossom Time saw the older members of the audience singing along.

Anneka said: ‘We’ve heard so much about the tea rooms and we were delighted when Pauline and Jacqui said we could film here.

‘We are aiming to take our show to Edinburgh Fringe and it costs a lot of money so we are making a promotional video to fund it and 19 Four Teas was the perfect backdrop.’
