Britain's Got Talent opera star Jonathan Antoine is delighted to have got "that little edge" over Simon Cowell by sticking with partner Charlotte Jaconelli.

After their first audition Cowell suggested Jonathan split from Charlotte and go solo but the pair stuck together and won the public vote in Monday's semi-final of the ITV1 show to book their place in Saturday's final.

Jonathan said: "It felt pretty good getting that little edge over him. We had decided that we were going to stay as a duo and he tried to split us up and he's admitted now that it was a good decision."

Cowell tweeted after the show that the pair were his "high point" point of the night and Charlotte said it was "amazing to know that he liked us together".
