A BRITAIN'S Got Talent winner showed he has all the smart moves after graduating in style.
Diversity's Ike Ezekwugo, was joined by seven of his fellow stars as he picked up his degree in Human Resource Management at the University of Greenwich.
Despite a huge commitment to learning the dazzling dance routines on Simon Cowell's hit TV show, he still managed to graduate with a 2:2 honours and he praised the university's lecturers for getting him through.
The 22-year-old from Leytonstone said: "It's really exciting to graduate. I've got my family here and the rest of the guys, I've got my degree and I'm part of Diversity. I feel like I can do anything.
He quipped: "If it wasn't for all the dance rehearsals though, I would have got a 2:1 degree!"
After the university's awards ceremony last Wednesday at the Old Royal Naval College campus he said: "My mum has always stressed how important education is so I've been focussed on university and getting a degree.
"You never know what could happen in the future - I could break my leg and not be able to dance - so this gives me something to fall back on. It's vital for young people to study, education is such a big part of life."
