Choreographer and Diversity front man Ashley Banjo, faces one of his toughest challenges yet – to teach a group of Gravesend dinner ladies to dance! In the third episode of the series, the unlikely dancers struggle to pick up the moves due to limited free time, but will Ashley be able to teach the ladies the routine in time?

The new series of Secret Street Crew Ashley tries to teach some unlikely candidates to dance, including dinner ladies and darts players!  The groups will learn a routine in secret, and then put on a surprise performance for their unsuspecting families, friends and colleagues. Who will be up to the challenge?

Ashley Banjo is the leader of London based street dance troupe Diversity, who won the third series of Britain’s Got Talent in 2009. The dance crew sensationally beat odds on favourite to win Susan Boyle and have since completed sell-out tours and performed at the Royal Variety Show.

Ashley is also a judge on Sky1’s popular show “Got To Dance”, alongside former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt, and actor and West End performer Adam Garcia. The dance talent show, now in its third series is hosted by Davina McCall, and has previously been filmed at the Maidstone TV Studios.

Gravesend is a town in North West Kent and is on the south bank of the River Thames. It is a historic town with nearby attractions including Cobham Hall, the Higham home of Charles Dickens, and the grave of Pocahontas. The area Gravesham has also welcomed filming from Age Of Heroes and The Canterbury Tales.
