Axel Blake makes Britain's Got Talent final

But Brian and Krysstal get buzzed off

Comic Axel Blake has made it through to the final of Britain's Got Talent after winning tonight's live semi-final.

On hearing the news, he said: 'I feel amazing. Overwhelmed. Thank you everyone at home and here, thank you very much.'

He had won praise from all the judges following his set on the ITV show,

Simon Cowell said: 'I didn't realise actually how brilliant you are. I'm not just saying this.. I'm going to say it because I mean it: you're a star'.

David Walliams added: 'It was the Axel Blake Show... it wasn't Britain's Got Talent any more because you are just so at home on that stage. You're so funny but so likeable too.  I could listen to you all night. '

Alesha Dixon said: 'You couldn't have played that any better' and Amanda Holden added: 'Every single joke landed.'

However, comedy circuit stalwarts Brian and Krysstal were buzzed off  on the same show.

Holden was the first to turn against them, prompting boos from some quarters of the audience - but also encouraging more heckles towards the act.

Then Simon Cowell was seen with this head in his hands, but Alesha Dixon was next to buzz. When Cowell and David Walliams also turned in quick succession it divided the audience.

'It wasn't coming over in the way we'd have liked,' Walliams told the duo when asked to explain his interruption. 'I'm gutted for you.'

Dixon called the performance 'a bit ropey', Holden said 'the jokes were a bit lame' and Cowell said it 'was not very well prepared for a semi-final'.

Seven-year-old environmental spoken word artist Aneeshwar Kunchala also got through tonight after winning the judges' voite.

Other acts in the final – which  airs at 7.30pm on Sunday on ITV – include teenage comic Eva Abely, singers Tom Ball and Maxwell Thorpe, teenage ventriloquist Jamie Leahey, impressionist Ben Nickless and musicians Flintz & T4ylor.
