Daniel Buckley, from the hit musical Eugenius, said: “As well as being an incredibly talented singer and performer with an awesome ‘belt’ voice, she is also a really lovely young lady with a bright future and looks forward to seeing her or working with her in the years to come.”

Miranda Brookman, Bryony and Phoebe’s mum, said: “Bryony has recently been offered a place on the foundation course at the very prestigious Emil Dale Academy and has also earned a call back to Mountview, the top drama school in the country and considered among the best in the world.”

Phoebe-Julianne, a pupil at Orchards Junior School in Goring, performed Almost There from Disney’s The Princess and the Frog, securing a place in the final at West End theatre The Other Palace on May 27.

She was chosen by Tom Lees, musical director for Britain’s Got Talent winner Collabro, who said she was a ‘really talented performer’.
