Leggings-loving young singer applauded by Dame Vera
Ten-year-old Chloe Hickinbottom shocked viewers this weekend after a stunning performance of Dame Vera Lynn's The White Cliffs of Dover.

The three judges of Britain's Got Talent praised the young singer for her rendition, with the girl competing to win the top prize of £100,000 and a place at the Royal Variety Performance.

Considering what the prize money would be spent on, Chloe said that she would buy "tights and leggings and jeggings" - clearly knowing how to be fashionable at such a young age.

What's more, Dame Vera Lynn herself, at the ripe old age of 92, is excited for the singer, telling the Times that she has her full backing and noting how it was great to see a young girl want to sing her songs.

Dame Vera added: "She sounded very mature, she had a good presence, and she looks good. More importantly than all of that, she sings in tune. She has got absolutely great potential."
