Barnsley Girls Perform Alongside Robbie Williams

Wednesday July 2 2014




TWO young performers got the best seats in the house at a Robbie Williams concert - sat at either side as they performed alongside him.

Ten-year-old Ellie Tasker and Izzy Williams, nine, performed 'High Hopes' with the former Take That star as part of his Swings Both Ways tour at the First Direct Arena in Leeds in June.

Ellie's nannan, Tracey Backhouse, of Cumberland Drive, Ardsley, said it was a fantastic two nights.

"The girls absolutely loved it, everyone is really proud of them," Tracey said.

"There isn't much that fazes Ellie - even on the day I asked her if she was nervous and said there would be 15,000 people there, but she said she was okay.

"Robbie ordered them 15 pizzas and got them a big bowl of sweets and drinks and snacks."

Tracey, 46, said Ellie wanted to be on stage and was previously appeared in a version of the opera Carmen.

Izzy has landed the role of the young Princess Fiona in a touring production of Shrek.
