BGT semi-finalist Lettice gives up drinking to create a ‘wholesome image’

Britain’s Got Talent hopeful Lettice Rowbotham has revealed she’s given up drinking after taking to the stage for her first audition with a terrible hangover.

The sultry violinist told The Sun she has stayed on the wagon so she can focus on winning the competition.

Lettice said: “As soon as [my first audition] went on TV, I realised it was the best opportunity of my life and I want to give it my all.

“So I’ve actually stopped drinking now following my first audition. I have more fun when I’m teetotal because I have energy and I’m always really positive and I don’t feel rubbish in the mornings.

“I want to be an example to kids and if I’m seen drinking I don’t think it’s a very good thing. I want to have a wholesome image for people.”

Lettice will compete for her place in the finals of the ITV talent show tonight (May 29) along with teenage rap duo Bars And Melody.

Leondre Devries, 13, and friend Charlie Lenehan 15, impressed Simon Cowell so much he hit his Golden Buzzer to send them straight through to the semi-finals, after their moving song about bullying.

Leondre told The Daily Mirror how penning the track had helped him deal with his own experience of being bullied.

He said: “It wasn’t the best time for me. It happened for four years, from Year 4 through to Year 8. I was too scared to bring it up in front of my parents because I didn’t want people to say I was an attention-seeker.

“Writing it all down was my escape and I don’t know what I would have done without it.”
