THEY might not be flying the claret and gold flag of the mighty Giants.

But don’t let that put you off – because two Huddersfield girls are set to star in a Sky TV documentary about cheerleading.

Bradford Bulls’ cheerleaders Danielle Wilson, from Berry Brow, and Zana Coultas, from Lepton, are currently taking part in filming for the show.

Which means the cameras have been following the duo – and the rest of the Bradford Bullettes – wherever they go.

Danielle, 20, told the Examiner: “It’s been really exciting. The cameras have been filming us at competitions and training as well as on nights out and at the gym.

“The crew came to interview squads from up and down the country and they chose to focus just on us.”

Danielle and Zana, who is vice cheer captain, used to cheerlead for the Huddersfield Giants, but they moved to the Bradford Bulls along with their coach Robyn Morrison as part of Panache Cheerleading School.

Robyn’s husband Glenn Morrison used to play for Bradford and is now in a coaching role at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.

Danielle, who works part time as a waitress at Woodsome Hall Golf Club while studying at Kirklees College, said: “Lots of the members at the golf club asked me – why are you going to the Bradford Bulls? You should be staying with the Giants, where are your morals?

“I used to support the Giants but obviously now we support the Bulls and it’s great when we’re winning, although we didn’t do too well last season.”

Danielle, who lives with mum Jane and dad Paul, said at first she and Zana and the rest of the team didn’t realise the extent of the filming.

She said: “When the woman for Sky first came she just had this little camera and we thought to ourselves that it would be nothing big.

“She interviewed us all and then the next time she came back there was a bigger camera and it’s been following us around everywhere.

“I go to Total Fitness Gym in Waterloo and they’ve even been filming in there.

“We’ve been told the programme might even turn into a series like Pineapple Dance Studios.”

The programme – which has not yet been named – is due to be aired on Sky early next year.
