SPAIN'S answer to Susan Boyle took to the stage in a national TV talent show this week and produced a jaw-dropping display of athletic ability to win the competition.

The show-stopper was 75-year-old British grandmother Paddy Jones who reportedly returned to dancing just five years ago after the death of her husband.
Jones, who is originally from Stourbridge in the West Midlands, appeared on stage in front of a studio audience with a partner 40 years her junior. The unlikely partners proceeded to perform a high-energy sequence of gravity-defying lifts, spins and flips. Clips of Jones' performance on Tu Si Que Vales, the Spanish equivalent of Britain's Got Talent, are attracting hits on video-sharing site YouTube and comments including “wonderful,“ “excellent” and “incredible woman!” Jones, whose real name is Sarah, told the local Stourbridge News that she was stunned by her newfound fame. “It's crazy - life has just turned upside down. We're absolutely over the moon. I never really expected it,” she said.
