Simon Cowell declared singer Faryl Smith the best thing he’s seen on this series of Britain’s Got Talent.

The 12-year-old from Kettering, Northants, stunned the audience with her performance of the hymn Ave Maria, and Cowell has reportedly arranged private tuition for the girl they’re calling the ‘next Charlotte Church’.

Her father, Tony, revealed that they’d already turned down record deals for her.
