Cor Glaneathwy and Entity Allstars made it through to the Britain's Got Talent final last night, sadly at the expense of social media favourite, Lorraine Bowen.

The quirky singer-comedian has been championed by judge David Walliams throughout the series, with the Little Britain funnyman choosing her as his Golden Buzzer act after her eccentric performance of "The Crumble Song".

But alas, "Britain's answer to Beyonce" (thanks for that gem, David) failed to beat some more 'conventionally' talented competition on Monday's first live show, finishing fourth in the public vote and narrowly missing out on the chance to be saved by the panel.

Lorraine spiced things up a little with a new space-themed song featuring aliens and a bizarre silver spacesuit that quickly saw a flabbergasted Simon Cowell buzz her a big red cross.

"You really put me off Simon, I'm going to get really cross now," she joked after her performance.

"I buzzed because it was total rubbish. Even the aliens were rubbish," Simon hit back, before Amanda Holden rushed to Lorraine's defence, calling her "one of the best, one of the most nuts things [she's] ever seen".

Despite Cowell's disapproval, the 53-year-old has earned celebrity support from the likes of Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw and rapper Snoop Dogg, so clearly she's pretty darn cool.

The fans were loving her too, with some even drawing comparisons to Lily Allen and Dot Branning.

Britain's Got Talent is on every night this week at 7.30pm on ITV, before the grand final on Sunday. Who will take Collabro's crown, win the £250,000 cash prize and join the Royal Variety Performance line-up?

 

There is still some hope that Lorraine may make a reappearance, should there be a wildcard act again this year.
