English brothers complete Dutch talent show double

Dean Saunders won the third edition of the television talent show Popstars on Saturday night, making it a double victory for the Saunders family.

Younger brother Ben won the first edition of the Voice of Holland show on Friday night.
The Saunders family moved to the Noord-Holland town of Hoorn from London some 25 years ago when both boys were very young. Father Dean runs a tattoo parlour in the town.
Hoorn town council is planning a hero’s welcome for the men. ‘They are great ambassadors for the city,’ mayor Onno van Veldhuizen said.
