Norwich pensioner wins Britain Got Talent with tribute to late wife

Dressed in the signature red ceremonial Royal Artillery uniform of Chelsea Pensioners, Thackery performed a moving cover of the Andrew Lloyd Webber song, accompanied by a male backing choir of other Chelsea Pensioners.

The episode, which aired from 7.30pm until 10.15pm, had a peak viewing figure of 10.6 million, a high for ITV for 2019.

The 89 year old will perform in front of Her Majesty the Queen at this year's Royal Variety Performance on 17 November 2019.

Thackery, 89, received a quarter of the votes cast to be crowned the victor of Britain's Got Talent.

It is not yet known if the pensioner will sign a record label deal.

According to The Sun, an industry insider said that Sony Music execs believe Thackery has even more potential and they would love to cash in by releasing an album with him in the next few months.

He earned a standing ovation for his performance of Love Changes Everything and the audience chanted his name.

He said he would be able to "die happy" if he could perform for the Queen.

IPhone XR: Everything you need to know!
A couple of minutes is obviously not enough time to get to know the iPhone XR , but at first blush, it looks like a victor . The dual camera system on the iPhone creates a disparity map to simulate depth and distance and then apply background blur.

Another said: "I don't watch BGT but I can't think of a more deserving victor especially with the 75th anniversary of D day this week".

Only a day after winning the show, Colin has revealed his money will be going to the Royal Chelsea Hospital, where he lives.

"We've got a new centre that we've been wanting to build, a visitors centre, activity centre. I think tonight you are unbeatable".

He also added some of the money will go to his family, explaining: "And I've got family, I've got grandchildren wanting to get on the property ladder, and that sort of thing".

Thackery said: "That is the zenith, that's the ultimate".

The identity of X turned out to be Marc Spelmann, a very talented mind-reader and magician who wowed the country in last years show with his emotional performances.

A total of 11 acts competed in the final, with 10 making it through during this week's live semi-finals and one act, dance duo Libby and Charlie, were picked as the judges' wildcard. Magician Ben Hart took third place.
