A SIX-YEAR-OLD street dancer is hoping 2010 will bring him TV fame in the next series of Britain's Got Talent.
Cheeky Joe Forshaw from Chequers in Clayton-le-Moors sailed through the first round of auditions held in Manchester recently.
Producers liked Joe's street dance routine so much, they took him aside to be filmed in front of a large crowd of spectators.
And although the Mount Pleasant pupil says he is not a fan of music mogul Mr Simon Cowell, he still reckons he could be the next Aston from JLS.
Joe said: "I had to do some street dancing like they do in JLS's song Beat Again, in front of a judge - we had to look at the camera and I was nervous.
"Then I went to a big room and I had to do some more dancing in front of a camera and there was a big crowd of people watching.
"I don't like Simon Cowell, he's just not nice.
"But I would like to impress the judges."
Joe's dad Michael who also lives with Joe's mum Joanne and their 12-year-old son Ben, says little Joe dances every day and started entertaining when he was just a toddler.
His favourite dance moves, he says, are the 'robot', 'worm' and 'twist'.
The six-year-old recently bagged the winning trophy at a Britain's Got Talent-style night held in aid of Children in Need at the Stanley Street working men's club in Accrington.
He now waits to find out whether he gets through the next round of auditions in the new year.
Michael said: "I'm hoping he will get through, he's always been an entertainer and I've got to follow him whatever he wants to do.
"What the show achieves with people like Susan Boyle is amazing."
