An English woman who was secretly filmed bopping to music while waiting for a bus has been offered a professional stage gig after the clip went viral on YouTube.
The headphone-wearing Ellie Cole, 35, will perform at an Eastleigh theatre in "AH Men" - a play that has toured the West End - after playwright and director Lynne Paris was shown the clip by her son and resolved to track the groover down, the Daily Mail reports.
Ms Cole, a former arts school student who works as a secretary, was filmed by local café owner Jane Rowland, 45, when dancing to Alesha Dixon's "Knock Down" on an overcast English day in April.
The funny scene was later set to Abba’s "Dancing Queen" in the YouTube clip, "Eastleigh’s Got Talent", which has had over 900,000 views.
Ms Cole's impromptu performance starts with a jiggle and becomes more animated as she moves to tunes, as bike-riders, dog-walkers, trucks and cars roll by.
The clip ends when she finally hails the bus with an arm wave and finger twirl, jumping on a bus that is adorned with the words, "A brighter way to Southampton".
Playwright Lynne Paris tracked the dancing secretary down after a conversation with her son.
"My son saw the video and he said, 'you've got to see this mum, she's just like you'," Ms Paris said.
She found the performer, aka the 'Dancing Queen', and subsequently offered her the gig.
Ms Cole said the stage offer was "flattering and humbling".
"I'm just a normal everyday person who happens to like dancing at bus stops," she said.
Jane Rowland, who filmed the routine from her cafe opposite the bus stop, said, "She is an inspiration to us all and has cheered everyone up".
Ms Cole will feature in the first act’s chorus line and performed with the cast during the local Mardi Gras procession’s finale yesterday.
