Who remembers these amazing scenes which happened seven years ago this week as Hartlepool dance crew Ruff Diamond performed their way to the grand finals of the Got To Dance show on Sky TV.

The show hosted by Davina McCall, saw the judges Ashley Banjo, Kimberly Wyatt and Aston Merrygold give the six-strong crew three stars for their first round performance.

They surged through the semi-finals as well while a huge section of the fans went wild as they watched back in Hartlepool.

Then Ruff Diamond got through to the final three competitors before narrowly missing out on the title.

We’ve got 13 reminders of the Diamond fever which swept the town that year. Take a look and re-live the memories.
