Gracie Wickens-Sweet from Brent Knoll, described as "fantastic" by the judges, got a standing ovation from the crowd for her performance of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. Her next challenge will be to make it through to the show's live finals.

Experts have challenged the commonly held belief that babies should be sleeping through the night once they are six months old.

They found that 78% of babies aged six to 12 months usually wake at least once. Some 61% still have at least one milk feed in the night.

And, shattering another myth, the research found no difference in the number of times babies woke up whether they were breast-fed or given formula milk.
