AN Oxford DJ and his son shared a stage with top celebrity judges on a popular TV show on Saturday. 

Gary Smith, from Bicester, who goes by the stage name DJG, performed alongside his son on BBC One's The Greatest Dancer competition, hoping for a chance to win £50,000 and appear on Strictly Come Dancing.

The pair walked into the studio to be welcomed by Love Island 2019 finalist and professional dancer, Curtis Pritchard.

Asked what they were going to bring to the stage, Darius said: "We just want to make people happy.There's so many bad things happening in the world and we just want to take people out of that siuation and just bring them joy."

With judges, Cheryl, Oti Mabuse, Matthew Morrison and Todrick Hall sat in their chairs, Darius danced while his father DJed and luckily they received enough votes from the audience to go through to the next stage.

After their performance, judge Cheryl said: "Were you the greatest dancer? No, definitely not, but you were the greatest vibes of the evening, so congratulations."

The judges loved their energy so much that they got on stage with them to dance as the audience - which included Darius' grandmother Icolyn Smith - cheered along.

She said: "They're more than two peas in a pod, they're best friends."
