    Who is Ben Nickless?

    Ben Nickless is one of the many hopefuls who has made it into the final, increasing the possibility of his Royal Variety dream coming true.

    The 40-year-old, from Lancashire, has previously auditioned for the show, trying his luck in 2019.

    Although he was successful in the first round, he didn’t make it to the semi-finals and his audition was never televised.

    Luckily, Ben wasn’t put off, and returned in 2022 to wow the judges.

    After a slow start with his ventriloquism, Ben smashed out 20 different impressions in 60 seconds, leaving the audience and the judges in stitches.

    Viewers slam Simon Cowell for show hitting ‘all time low’ 

    FURIOUS Britain’s Got Talent viewers hit out at Simon Cowell for reaching an “all time low” by claiming Ranger Chris and his dancing dinosaurs could WIN the show.

    Fans of the hit ITV show blasted the mogul , 62, and the act he was championing during tonight’s second live semi final.

    Simon famously fought for Ranger Chris and his music loving cretaceous crew to make the semi final, despite the other judges not agreeing.

    And after Chris and his dinos has performed, Simon said: “A dinosaur has never won Britain’s Got Talent ever. That might change after tonight.”

    He also claimed he was right for fighting for the act to get through.

    But many watching at home were not impressed with the performance, nor Simon’s reaction.

    “This show has hit an all-time low,” one former fan vented on twitter.

    “Some people dancing in rubber dinosaur suits IS NOT F***ING TALENT” added another.

    A third claimed Simon’s standards have slipped, fuming: “Simon would have buzzed this act now if this was five to ten years ago.”

    He is touring around Germany this year, and has a huge European fanbase.

    In 2009, Susan Boyle won BGT, and is now thought to be worth a whopping $40 million.
