A Godmanchester student who works as a singing waitress to pay her way through university is having her moment in the spotlight on a BBC television show.

Tor Hills, 23, is a former Hinchingbrooke School pupil who now studies at Vocal Tech in West London.

She started working at The Naked Turtle restaurant in Richmond, south-west London, just two weeks before the BBC started its search for people who sing at work.

Tor and her two colleagues, waitress Steph Grace, 27, and restaurant manager, Dee Livingstone, 28, auditioned with the Christina Aguilera hit Candyman.

Tor said: "We had a fantastic time taking part in the show. We went in for it to publicise the restaurant, but, if the right person sees us, it could mean a big break."

On Saturday, Tor and her colleagues will sing a Girls Aloud song, The Promise.
