Hoff wants a BGT winner ‘with heart and attitude’

Britain’s Got Talent judge David Hasselhoff wants someone ‘with heart’ to win the show.

The former Baywatch star revealed there is one act he particularly wants to see again – autistic dancer James Hobley from Redcar who wowed the judges at an earlier audition in Manchester.

David said: “The kind of act I would like to see win is one that can sustain a career for more than just a few weeks. One who is humble and one that has not just got talent but is also entertaining – a talent with heart and attitude.”

Asked which act he wants to see in the live shows, he said: “The 11-year old autistic boy who dances like Billy Elliot.”

Among the acts trying to reach the final are an enthusiastic organist and a stunt cyclist.

Nineteen-year-old Joe admits his devotion to cycling can get him into trouble, telling the judges: “Everything I do I have to think about my bike first… if I go on holiday my girlfriend wants me to go away without my bike, but a week without it is not so easy.”

But he impressed the crowd with his stunt routine and Michael told him: “Joe, that was sensational, it was almost like you and the bike were one… it was very, very, very exciting… you had the audience on your feet, which you deserved to have.”

David told organist Jean Martyn tells her: “Jean, you rock, I think the Queen would love you, I can’t stop smiling.”
