After quickly realising she had a love for dance at age two, Siwa began taking classes in tap, jazz, hip hop and ballet.

Coun Gillian Campbell, the deputy leader of Blackpool Council, said: “We are delighted to welcome JoJo to Slimefest Blackpool in October.

“She’s a perfect fit with Blackpool’s family market. We are excited that she’s joining us for her first UK music performances and it is fantastic news that she will be appearing at all six shows.”

SlimeFest, in partnership with VisitBlackpool, takes place at The Arena, Blackpool Pleasure Beach from October 21 to 23.
