IDENTICAL twins Hope and Millie Katana hope to be in unison for a new television programme.

For the talented singers appear on new CBBC series Clash, which sees their musical skills tested to the limit.

The 13-year-olds auditioned after the BBC contacted Greater Manchester Music Action Zone (GMMAZ), where they have been singing for four years. They saw off tough competition from more than 600 other children to be among the 10 youngsters chosen for the programme.

The six-week series, filmed in London, saw two teams tackle a series of music-related challenges. Hope and Millie’s team was mentored by Radio 1 DJ Nihal and Jason Lai, cellist, pianist, composer and conductor. Viewers will see the twins busking in Covent Garden, collecting animal sounds on a farm, transforming well-known classical music into pop songs, and performing at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Swindon.

During filming they met many celebrities, including The Saturdays, The Noisettes, Lesley Garrett, Stomp, Pixie Lott, Katherine Jenkins and Tinchy Stryder.

Hope and Millie attend Woodhey High School. Their mother Jan, of Plantation View, Summerseat, said: “The girls had an absolute ball. It’s been a fantastic opportunity for them. They are great girls and really good at what they do. I couldn’t be more proud of them.”
