Barnsley prom featured on TV show

By Lynsey Bradford, Town Reporter Tuesday 26th August 2014
IT'S slowly made its way to the UK from America — and now the fuss of preparing for a high school prom has featured in a TV show which was partly filmed in Barnsley.

Camera crews from Channel Five filmed a school prom at Burntwood Court Hotel in Brierley and also shadowed the students as they made preparations.

Ella Ross, 16, a student at Hemsworth Community College, organised the filming as she is interested in being on television.

She said: "It shows what it is like leaving school and getting ready for prom. Everyone wants to out do each other and have the best dress and look their best.

"People can say things about you on the day that might upset you, about your dress.

"I was saying I wanted to look nice and didn't want to look fat."

Ella described her dress as a Cinderella dress but said no one made any negative comments about it.
