THE Black Country's Dancing Grannies have been living life in the fast lane and have won themselves a new celebrity fan.

Susan Hawkins, Deb Nicholls and Jacky Fellows - better know as The Fizzogs - bumped into Formula One star Lewis Hamilton in Bahrain where they are performing at the Grand Prix.

The motor racing world champion signed their Black Country flag and posted a picture of the four of them on social media platform Snapchat.

Sue Hawkins, of Fizzog Productions in Dudley, said: "It's fair to say that Lewis loved us."

Sue and comedy partners Jacky and Deb were offered the glamour gig in the Middle East when they were spotted performing as their cardigan-clad alter egos - Letty, May and Hilda - at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival last year.

The talented trio, who have been rubbing shoulders with glitzy VIPs in the paddock in Bahrain, have now lost count of the number of times their hilarious dance routine has gone viral.
