A garden shed in Northamptonshire has been shortlisted for a national award.

Sonia Walker's husband built it at their home in Rushden for her 50th birthday.

The shed was built and decorated for under a thousand pounds.

It's apparently more for quiet contemplation than cuttings and compost. Now it's been chosen for the finals of Shed of the Year competition.

"It's just my little place and I love being here but, yeah, I'm very privileged, I feel very special to have got through."

Watch: Our presenters bust a move with the Dancing Grannies

Sorry, this content isn't available on your device.

We were joined in the studio this afternoon by some very special guests - two of the famous Dancing Grannies.

The three 'grannies' from the Black Country became a world-wide internet hit in 2014 when they busted some uncharacteristically raunchy moves to the latest hits.

The 'elderly' dance troupe are actually friends Sue Hawkins, Jackie Fellows, and Deb Nicholls who met at Dudley College.

The group have become so popular they are even flying out to Bahrain next week to perform at the F1 Grand Prix.
