Salsa dancing OAP Paddy Jones has already been tipped to win Britain’s Got Talent 2014.
The 79-year-old was chosen as Amanda Holden’s golden buzzer act during this year’s auditions meaning she’s already made it through to the live shows.
Paddy wowed the judges on just the second day of auditions in Birmingham earlier this year as she was swung around by dance partner Nico Espinosa, 40, in a nimble routine.
Although Simon Cowell, being Simon, did originally buzz the pair just seconds into their audition.
According to The Sun newspaper, Paddy and Nico have previously won £80,000 after coming top in Spain’s version of BGT.
Now More Talent host Stephen Mulhern reckons they’re set to conquer Britain next.
“It took your breath away. She’s so fit like a gymnast, yet she’s nearly 80,” he told the newspaper. “I think she could win it.”
Earlier this week a confident Amanda said of Paddy: “I think my Golden Buzzer choice is going to definitely finish in the top three.”
She joked: “And if it wins I said to Simon, does that mean I win a holiday or something?”
Found in the centre of the judges’ desk, the golden buzzer is a new twist on this year’s audition show which, when pressed, will send the act on stage straight through to the live shows.
However the button can only be used once by each judge throughout the whole of the auditions.
Britain’s Got Talent 2014 will start on ITV on April 12, it was confirmed earlier this week.
