THE ATHLETIC duo that famously made Amanda Holden weak at the knees will be appearing at the Saffron Walden Carnival, it has been announced.
After weeks of negotiations, Carnival organisers have secured Strike - one of the hottest acts on this year's series of Britain's Got Talent - to support The Dreamboys on ladies' night, Monday July 7.
Event organiser Nick Head, of the Saffron Walden Round Table, said: "Our sound and light show this year will quite simply blow away anything we have ever been able to produce before and with the addition of brand new acts like Strike, I am confident of producing the ultimate wow factor."
Karate double act Strike impressed famously hard-to-please judge Simon Cowell with their high-octane display of choreographed martial arts, and reached the final stages of the national competition televised on ITV.
The perfect act to support The Dreamboys, Strike certainly struck a chord with judge Amanda Holden who could not take her eyes off the muscle-bound performers.
"Part of my role is to identify acts up and down the country that enable the Carnival not only to be an event that raises money for the many charities and worthwhile causes, but also to ensure that every single person who attends one of our events is provided with the utmost value for money," said Mr Head.
In a display of high-energy, rip-roaring talent, Sheffield friends Liam and Daniel, also known as Strike, will divert their attention from their many TV appearances to perform at the Carnival's ladies' night.
Tickets for ladies' night are limited and demand is expected to be high. Priced at £10 each, tickets can be purchased online at www.8dayweekend.co.uk or from the Carnival Caravan, in the Market Square, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10am to 4pm.
