THE Isle of Wight's very own Lily George will appear on Channel 4's Flirty Dancing this Friday.

Dance-fit teacher, Lily, 23, of Sandown, will join celebrity choreographer Ashley Banjo as he plays cupid for an evening ­— reintroducing the notion of love at first dance.

Lily, who was born with smaller fingers on her right hand, leading her to feel insecure about dating, and Jake ­— a dance teacher from Manchester ­who has not had a girlfriend for three years ­— were both in need of Ashley’s help to kickstart their romantic lives again.

Ashley creates a "sensual, tender and intimate dance" for the pair, where Lily will need to dig deep to find the confidence within.

Meeting for the first time in a picturesque moonlit park overlooking the bright lights of London, will it be the beginning of something special for Jake and Lily?

Find out at 8pm this Friday on Channel 4.
