Sheffield performer Ricky K has got through to the next round of Britain’s Got Talent - after impressing judges with his comedy mime routine to music.

The 33-year-old, whose real name is Richard Calow, starred on Saturday night’s BGT show and was put through to the next round by all four judges - Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams.

Ricky, from Mosborough, was described as a ‘born entertainer’ by comic Walliams.

Commenting on Ricky’s performance, Walliams added: “It was really funny, physically great and a very original routine.

“I think it will appeal to a lot of people. I really, really enjoyed it, well done.”

Simon Cowell admitted he had not been looking forward to the act and revealed he had expected Ricky to tell bad jokes.

“When you walked out in that suit and I thought you’re going to do jokes I was absolutely dreading it. But it really made me laugh out loud. I liked it a lot,” he said.

Amanda Holden added: “I thought it was a really innovative act - we’ve not had anything like that on the show before.

“For you to think outside the box and be unique is a big thing. As a piece of entertainment it was really good I bet you’re a good dancer.”

Ricky performs at pubs and clubs and has worked on cruise ships and holiday parks.
