Sarah Walliss and Chelsea were interviewed by judges Ray Eldridge and Kate Lee prior to the evening.
The judges said they were ‘‘most impressed’’ with the standard of the girls’ achievements, their ability to answer two impromptu speeches and the manner in which they presented their own five-minute speech.

Chelsea won the public speaking award and was declared the overall winner.
