Viewers of yesterday’s Coronation concert were wowed by the ‘absolutely amazing’ performance of the BBC’s sign language interpreter.

The British Sign Language (BSL) presenter, who manned the BBC’s coverage for those with impaired hearing, certainly got into the groove as the acts performed on stage.

Dressed in a purple suit, she shook her elbows while bopping and headbanging to the music as she motioned the lyrics of the songs.

And it seems her sterling effort to relate all the fun of the event were more than appreciated by viewers.
