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.
