At London’s South Bank, dancers followed the lead of the former Strictly professionals to achieve the record for the world’s Largest disco dance.

An impressive 324 students from London's Bird Performing Arts College spent several weeks perfecting their routine, before attempting the record in snazzy disco inspired outfits.

Their show-stopping routine was of course choreographed to ABBA’s hit song, Mamma Mia.

Beforehand, James Jordan said: “We [James and Ola] are both huge fans of MAMMA MIA! Here We Go Again so it's been great fun hosting this Guinness World Records attempt.

"This is the most dancers we've ever shared a stage with and it’s wonderful to see the lasting legacy of ABBA and the film's feel good factor bring everyone together."


The attempt was organised by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment (UK) to mark the DVD release of MAMMA MIA! Here We Go Again, the follow-up to the 2008 romantic music comedy and starring the likes of Amanda Seyfried, Meryl Streep and Colin Firth.

The amazing dance routine was choreographed by Anthony Van Laast, with assistance from Lucy Bardick and was inspired by the film's famous jetty dance sequence.
