X Factor duo delight youngsters at village school

Children enjoyed a mini X Factor performance at their village school when a duo from the show turned up by surprise.

Thurleigh Lower School was treated to a special visit by singing couple Sharna Bowman and Stephen Elms – aka He Knows, She Knows – who made headlines during the 2016 series of the ITV singing contest when they got engaged in the audition room.

The duo performed an hour-long set in the school hall and used all the professional staging and lighting rigs from their current tour.

Stephen went to Bedford School and played rugby for the Bedford Junior Blues, Bedford Swifts, Biggleswade and Saracens Academy.

But his real love is music and he performed under his stage name Silvar Laidlow for a number of years. He met Sharna six months before the X Factor audition and the pair went on to form He Knows, She Knows.

Verity Slaughter-Penney, headteacher at the school, said: “The children threw themselves into the festival mood, joining in with the songs and high-fiving the singers. Everyone had a wonderful time.”
