STARLET of the screen Fleur Houdijk was given a welcome home surprise at a first public screening of the film she is appearing in.

The 15-year-old took a break from her studies in the capital at the prestigious Sylvia Young Theatre School to come back to Hartlepool yesterday.

And she was treated to red carpet fame at the Vue Cinema on the day All Stars hit the big screen.

Fleur, who stars in the film alongside John Barrowman and Girls Aloud’s Kimberley Walsh, had no idea the celebrity treatment was being laid out for her.

And she was joined by family and friends at the showing last night.

The surprise was organised by her proud mum, Sharon Cook, 54, who admitted it has been “surreal” driving around the town and seeing pictures of her film star daughter on billboards advertising the new film.

Sharon, a mental health nurse from the Clavering area of Hartlepool, joined her daughter and the stars at the film’s premiere in Leicester Square, in London, last week.

Fleur was also welcomed home by the fantastic Diamond Allstars, the younger crew of Ruff Diamond, who performed outside the cinema last night.

Fleur plays the role of Amy in the street dancing film and landed the spot after impressing in a series of auditions.
