Lost Voice Guy is the new favourite to win Britain’s Got Talent after securing a place in Sunday’s grand final.
The comic, real name Lee Ridley, 37, whose stage name comes from having cerebral palsy which has left him unable to speak, brought the house down with his comedy routine.
Coral now makes the comedian the clear 7/4 (cut from 6/1) favourite to win Britain’s Got Talent after his semi-final victory last night.
The live semi-final episodes continue tonight and air every evening until Friday, May 31, before Sunday's grand final.
Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead: “Lost Voice Guy has won so many supporters in his run to the final and not only is the first contestant into this weekend’s finale, he’s now our clear favourite to win the show and earn a spot at the Royal Variety Performance”.
The D-Day Darlings also progressed through yesterday’s semi-final, however they are given much longer odds of 10/1 to win by Coral.
“The D-Day Darlings may have qualified for the final on Sunday but with plenty more acts still fighting it out to seal their spot we sense that they face an uphill battle to force their way into the winners enclosure,” added Aitkenhead.
Tonight’s semi-final features Magus Utopia, Ronan Busfield, Calum Courtney, Nick Page, Andrew Lancaster, Futunity, B-Positive Choir and Donchez Dacres.
Aitkenhead added: “Tonight’s semi-final will see two more people qualify for the final but it looks to be one of the weaker heats as some of our best backed contestants Marc Spelmann, Jack & Tim and Gruffyd Wyn are all not set to perform until later in the week.”
The first BGT semi-final starts tonight on ITV1 from 7.30pm.
