Britain's Got Talent opera star Jonathan Antoine said he would not consider going solo despite Simon Cowell suggesting he split from his singing partner Charlotte Jaconelli.

Speaking to ITV1's Daybreak he vowed the pair would stick together throughout the competition.

Well we'd already thought that that might happen because that’s the way of TV. We discussed it and I'd already made the decision that if that happened, we would be staying together.

The pair wowed the judges and audience with their performance, which aired on Saturday night, and flew through to the next round of the competition.

Antoine also admitted Jaconelli was a real support for him when they performed on stage.

It's been a real help, in terms of going out there and performing especially, and it’s just been great to be able to sing with Charlotte because she is really good.

She's very important, she supports me a lot and I'm very lucky.
