Comic makes it through to BGT finals

Daliso Chaponda has made it through to tomorrow’s Britain’s Got Talent final after wowing judges and audience alike.

The comedian had made the live semi-finals thanks to Amanda Holden’s ‘golden buzzer’ in his audition.

But tonight he got a standing ovation from all four judges, with Holden gushing: ‘I love you, you are even better than the last time that I saw you.’

She added: ‘It was naughty and cool. No one can take your stuff, you are unique and you smashed it!’

Simon Cowell predicted ‘big things’ for the  Malawian stand-up, who he called ‘one of the funniest people we’ve had on this show’

‘You are so fantastically non-PC and I think that’s why people love you,’ he said. ‘Off the back of this, your phone should be ringing with people offering you your own show.

‘The one thing I’ve noticed about comedians is that they’re selfish but I think there is a gap in the market for you.’

Missing People Choir also got through tonight, meaning musical impressionist Jess Robinson missed out on a place in the final.

Here's Chaponda's knockout set:
