Sam Barks in final

Laxey teenager Samantha Barks is through to the final of the BBC's I'd Do Anything.

The 17-year-old got the backing of Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber in a semi-final sing-off and will now battle it out in with two other hopefuls in the final next week to try become Nancy in Cameron Mackintosh's new production of Oliver!

The final will be purely decided on the phone vote.
