More auditions from London and Manchester have been seen as Britain’s Got Talent enters its fourth week.

And this week things did not get off to a good start in London, with judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan rejecting one act after another.

Among those who were buzzed off the stage included former cleaner Edelweiss Warby, who failed to impress the judges with her ability to sing like a dog.

Holistic therapist Julie Baston also left the panel cold with her rendition of Madonna’s Holiday, which Simon described as “like somebody drunk on a hen night”.

And comedy duo Dynamic Duo got the thumbs down after poking fun at Piers. “You’re two of the most annoying little twerps in the world,” he told the pair.

However, it wasn’t all bad news – 20-year-old student Jeremy Lynch breezed through to the next round with his “freestyle football” after the panel were impressed by his ball skills.

“You’re the first person I’ve ever seen who’s turned this kind of thing into a proper entertainment act,” Piers said.

Manchester had a more promising line-up, with eight-year-old dance duo Cheeky Monkeys, consisting of best friends Charlie and Krista, making it through to the semi-final with their energetic routine.

And belly dancer Sophie Mei also wowed the judges with her moves. “You’ve got an absolute yes from me,” said a clearly impressed Simon.

Meanwhile, 72-year-old Leonard Bennett received a mixed response from the panel for his strongman act, as did opera singer Kay Lacey and her accompanist Harvey French – but both made it through to the next round.

However, their biggest praise was reserved for the final act of the show, 18-year-old singer and dancer Dean Wilson.

The teenager, from Middlesborough, initially fell foul of Simon after he said he “hated” the song he was performing from the musical Miss Saigon.

However, he allowed Dean to continue with his song after he admitted he had no other music with him – and he proceeded to win Simon over with his performance as well as wowing the other judges and receiving a standing ovation from the crowd.

“I’ve done this a long time and I don’t think I’ve ever seen such conviction and commitment from any audition I have ever done,” Simon told him.

“You’re one of the best we’ve had so far.”
