Hash Tap: 'We just hope we don't fall over on Got To Dance live show'
THEY are celebrating after tapping their way to the final 30 of a national talent competition.
Dancers Hannah Goodhall and Natalie Coolledge are through to the semi-finals of Sky 1's Got To Dance with their comedy act Hash Tap.
The former rivals, who used to compete as children, were given the green light to go through to the next round during last night's show.
The Hessle girls, both 23, plan to mix it up with a new routine for the next stage of the competition and say the news still has not sunk in.

Hannah said: "It's so strange seeing ourselves on TV and I think we sound a bit common but it is funny.
"We found out back in October that we were through to the semi-finals but we couldn't tell anyone.
"Now, everyone has seen it on TV and we've even got fans on Twitter."
The pair are one step closer to scooping the life-changing cash prize of £250,000 and they will dance again on Sunday, February 24.
"The show is live this time so it's going to be very nerve-wracking and we hope we don't fall over," Natalie said.
"We've had longer to prepare our routine and we want it to be even funnier than the first.
"It was never our intention for it to be a comedy act, we just wanted to include good facial expressions but people thought it was hilarious so we just went with it and embraced the idea.
"Everyone seems to love that we have marketed ourselves as 'one fat and one ginger' and we're just being ourselves and having fun."
The girls' first appearance on the show saw them gallop on to the stage to Gioachino Rossini's William Tell Overture, and perform a horse-riding comedy act.
Hannah and Natalie, who both teach at schools and dance studios in Hull, watched themselves on the small screen surrounded by friends and family.
Natalie, who works as a teaching assistant at Adelaide Primary School, said she had a DVD produced featuring their routine and all of the children have been watching it.
Natalie said: "They love it and it's been passed around all of the classes at school.
"The other contestants are amazing and we just hope we can do enough to go all the way to the final."
