Kizzy, 19, and Tilly, 21, who are from Gorleston, are professional aerial artists and worked out their two acts together, developing a synchronised gymnastic display.

Being so close to their Norfolk home is a bonus. “It’s a beautiful place close to the sea,” said Tilly. “It’s just minutes to the beach and our dogs love it.”

It also gives them a chance to pop home and catch up with their parents and two sisters, one of whom is Tilly’s twin.

Tilly added: “We love seeing new places, but whenever we find a nice restaurant we’re only there for a week before we have to move on.”
