Performing paperboy Bailey McConnell delivers an impressive performance in tonight's Britain's Got Talent.

The 14-year-old singer-songwriter from Milton Keynes had only three of the judges to win over as his audition came as show supremo Simon Cowell flew back to the United States for the birth of his son.

He told them he wrote the song Dying Hole after falling out with one of his friends, saying: "One of my close, close, close friends turned on me. It was unexpected and it really hurt me."

The performance got a standing ovation from the trio of judges, with David Walliams telling him: " What is there not to like about you? Fantastic voice, you played beautifully and you can write really incredible songs.

"Often the best singer-songwriters have to go through something really tough and turn it into something really beautiful and we can all unite because we've all had some experience like that... for example, the person that you love is having a baby with someone else, I get it. I get it."

Other performers in tonight's episode of the hit ITV show include several Irish dancers, a Del Boy impersonator and a bed of nails act.
