TWIST and Pulse – the talented dance act who competed in the fourth series of Britain’s Got Talent – is returning for The Champions edition on ITV.
Since being crowned runners-up in 2010, the group has experienced nationwide fame by going on a 70-day tour and appearing in multiple TV programs, but what else should you know about the talented duo?
Who is Twist & Pulse?
Twist and Pulse consist of Ashley Glazebrook and Glen Murphy – the two have been friends since their secondary school days.
Ashley was born 28 March, 1991 in Sidcup, London and attended the Business Academy Bexley Secondary School.
His passion for street dance came soon after when he started performing at events such as the Streetdance Weekend UK Championships and World Hip Hop Championships in Las Vegas.
Glen was born in 1990 at Guy’s Hospital in London and he attended Dalmain Primary School in Forest Hill School.
Glen and Ashley first met at the BRIT School of Performing Arts and Technology where they both ended up studying for a BTEC National Diploma in dance, ballet, tap dance and jazz dance.
Along with his creative education, Ashley also studied for his A levels at the same time, during which time his friendship with Glen had grown tremendously.
The dancing double realised that they had a lot in common, including their witty humour, and as college came to an end, they went on to form a duo called Cheeky Boiz.
Ashley and Glen received a lot of online attention with their “streetomedy” videos, leading the two to enter Britain’s Got Talent.
What have they done since Britain’s Got Talent?
Following their time on the ITV show, Twist and Pulse landed several TV opportunities on shows including Magic Numbers, where they did a dance that was made up from the music of blockbuster movies.
In 2011, Glen and Ashley landed their next spot on television when they were guests on Keith Lemon’s ITV2 show Celebrity Juice.
Other programs that soon followed were CBBC’s The Slammer, ITV’s Tenable and BBC One’s Let’s Dance for Comic Relief with Lee Nelson.
In 2013, the boys made an incredible move to perform for the biggest street dance TV show on CCTV News, which was watched by over 400MILLION people.
In early 2019, it was announced that Twist and Pulse were to return to Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions in the hopes of being crowned the ultimate winner.
When are they due to be on The Champions and when is the final?
Twist and Pulse will make their appearance on Saturday, August 28, 2019.
Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions commenced with its first series on 31 August, with Amanda Holden, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Simon Cowell.
The final is expected to commence on Saturday, October 5.
Previous episodes are available to watch on the ITV hub and catch up channels but sometimes only for a limited number of days.
Simon Cowell’s spin-off show will run for another two weeks and is likely to end on October 5, 2019.
