More than 100 rising stars took part in the Fiorentini’s Got Talent show, wowing the audience with their singing and dancing performing songs from Annie, Wicked and Matilda.

The youngsters were pupils at the Anna Fiorentini Theatre and Film School. Isobella Nazi-Angileh won with a performance of I Know Where I’ve Been from Hairspray.

Industry professionals helped judge the show on Saturday at Clapton Girls’ Academy in Laura Place, Lower Clapton, including film producer Alice de Sousa and West End star and former Fiorentini pupil Tahj Miles.

Anna Fiorentini said: “It was a roaring success. Even I was shocked at the talent we are helping produce.”

Jermain Jackman, who took the title in 2012, went on to win The Voice.
