Kai's got talent - and a new partner

ITV's Britain's Got Talent has us all glued to our seats again on Saturday nights and the dancing duo AJ and Chloe are among favourites so far.

But do you remember the sensational dancers Kai and Natalia who reached the finals last year - earning high praise from Simon Cowell? Back in November we revealed that they'd split up and Kai was looking for a new partner.

Well we can reveal tonight that he's found her. Kerry Swain has been to watch them training - and as you will see they already look incredible.

Simon Cowell gets a soaking from fellow Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden after the pair disagree about a pair of contestants.

She holds a glass of water above his head in the ITV show, threatening to pour when the show boss refuses to put a singing duo through.

And when he digs in his heels and fails to change his mind, she tips the glass over him as the panel splits along gender lines - leading to Amanda and Alesha Dixon later storming off during the auditions.
