WIRRAL dance group MerseyGirls have launched weekly vlogs on YouTube to give teenagers a chance to 'BeHeard!'

Formerly known as Just Us, the all-girl dance group shot to fame after receiving Alesha Dixon's Golden Buzzer in the audition process of last year's Britain's Got Talent.

After a busy few months, including releasing their debut charity single in May, the girls have started the new segment on their YouTube channel called 'BeHeard! with MerseyGirls.'

Each week they will discuss a topic that has been requested by their subscribers in the hope of giving youngsters a voice.

The first episode was uploaded on September 2 and saw the group tackle issues surrounding bullying.

The girls said: “We are inundated with messages from kids who are going through really hard times and we realised that they needed a voice – they needed to be heard – the issues they are facing need to be discussed and put out there so that people can understand them more and in the hope the something can be done to prevent the rise in teens suffering from mental health issues and feeling suicidal."

Teenagers can share their stories with MerseyGirls using the hashtag '#BeHeardMG' - anyone who wishes to can be anonymous.

MerseyGirls first entered Britain’s Got Talent to highlight spinal scoliosis – a condition which leading member Julia suffers with.

By entering the competition, the girls vowed that if they won they would use the prize fund for life-changing spinal surgery for Julia.

Without the operation, only available abroad, Julia would be unable to continue dancing.

However, head judge Simon Cowell said that he would pay for the £78,000 surgery no matter where the girls ended up in the competition.

True to his word, Simon paid for Julia to travel to the USA for the operation in July 2017 and has since returned to the stage to perform.
