Singer Ryan O'Shaughnessy and synchronised swimming act Aquabatique have become the last two acts to go through to the final of Britain's Got Talent.

The young Irishman was a controversial choice for the semi-finals after it was found he was signed up to the Irish version of rival show The Voice.

He won the public vote with his self-penned song about his unrequited love for a girl he knows.

Comedian David Walliams told him:

"This girl who won't go out with you, I don't know who she is but I tell you what, she is doing you a favour because you are writing the most beautiful songs I have ever heard for her."

Cowell cheekily added: "I wouldn't worry about her because you are going to get so much action after this."

He went on:

"You are a brilliant, brilliant songwriter. Your lyrics make sense, I listened to the lyrics. I think you are a brilliant songwriter and I also thing you are a brilliant singer. Maybe you could be the dark horse in this competition."
