In tonight’s episode of Britain’s Got Talent (BGT), judge Alesha Dixon pressed the golden buzzer for theatre group Chickenshed.

The group sang and danced to Wonder - a song by Naughty Boy and Emilie Sande.

When the golden buzzer is pressed, the act skips the next audition stages and goes straight through to the semi-final of the show.

Alesha Dixon couldn't hold back tears as she spoke about Chickenshed.

She said sending them through to the live semi-finals of the talent show was an “honour” because they pride themselves on inclusivity and celebrating young people.

She said: “I love every single thing that you stand for and that you represent, inclusivity is so important, everybody feeling represented, and you do that in abundance.

“You’re giving young people this incredible opportunity and platform and honestly, I don’t know what else is more important than that.”

Cowell said: “I’ve known about Chickenshed for a long time and I’ve always wondered when is the year you’re going to come on Britain’s Got Talent and this performance summed up everything you do.

“This really, really, really, really is a golden buzzer audition, that’s what it is for.”

Britain’s Got Talent continues on ITV1 and STV.
