It was only after their performance that Simon Cowell told him, that had “never been done before”.

Turning his attention to what life has been like since the show, Magical Bones admitted “it’s been a whirlwind”.

He added: “My Britain’s Got Talent performance was during the pandemic. So when I did the performance I had a lot of exposure.

“It was the exposure I needed in terms of getting to that next level, in terms of publicity and stuff, however, because of the pandemic, I wasn’t able to really activate on that because we were all in lockdowns.

“So a lot of the performances I did were Zoom shows. Since that has been released, there’s been a nice little explosion of performances and people coming to see shows now and it’s just been a sense of relief.

“I feel like my career was almost on hold until the pandemic was over.”

Britain’s Got Talent returns on Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
