A 10-year-old boy from Kent went on a family holiday to Cyprus - and ended up appearing on the final of Turkey's Got Talent.

Kavan Stables caught the eye of Turkish dance group Studio 21 on his holiday and impressed them so much that when he got home the family received a phone call inviting him to the TV final in Istanbul.

According to The Sun, mum Cazzie Franks said: "They were just messing about really, showing each other what they could do.

"Studio 21 told us if they got through to the final they'd like Kavan to come and dance with them. I didn't really think anything of it at the time."

But they did call, and Kav was whisked off to Istanbul to perform with the group, who ended up coming in at 5th place.

It's not the first time he's performed in front of big audiences, appearing on the show Got To Dance, hosted by Davina McCall.

He also last year appeared on Britain's Got Talent.

Cazzie told Kent Live: "He got four yeses from Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams but it wasn't broadcast in the end."

According to the Daily Mail, Cazzie added that while he's "a little star in the making", he often changes his mind about what he wants to do. "He's really good at all sports - rugby and football - he's good at everything," she said.
