The boss of a Northolt dance group who spooked Simon Cowell dressed as clowns has praised his team after exiting Britain's Got Talent.

TNG scared the nation when they auditioned for the show dressed as clowns before breaking into a dance routine.

It impressed the judges, including Simon Cowell who is known to be scared of clowns, landing them a spot at the semi-final on Friday (June 2).

But despite another fearsome performance, the group didn't make it to the final.

Founder Ricky Labib, who started the group in 2010, said: "It was incredible, we have had the time of our lives.

"It has made us even more hungry, we want to go out there and show people what we are all about.

"We just want to get out there and get highly active in the arts and the community.

"We would love someone to back us and open a a studio.

"Since opening it is something that I have always wanted and if I had the money I would do it today.

"For us it was about showing people what we are about.

"Every year there are thousands of dancers that enter, and in the semi-final there was eight.

"That is incredible to be in the last eight."
