Kingston University cheerleaders are set for national fame, after  teaming up with internet-sensation band, The Midnight Beast, for a brand new E4 series.
The Kingston Cougars have joined forces with All-Star team, the Surrey Starlets, to support and perform with the band in the new TV show.
Eloise Le Grys, a Cougars squad member, said: “It’s a great opportunity to get our team and also our university recognised. It was amazing to work with the boys and a great experience.”
Back in August 2011, the cheerleaders performed on stage at Reading Festival with the band in front of thousands. “It was a big deal,” said Emma Haggis, Kingston student and coach of the Cougars and the Starlets.
The Cougars, who have been National Champions for three years running, won the ‘Championship and Performance Club of the Year’ award at the 2011 KU Sports Awards.
