A father-and-son singing duo from Norwich will perform an emotional original song on Britain's Got Talent, in the hopes of impressing the judges.

Tim Goodacre, 43, and son Jack, 12, from Norwich, perform the track they have composed together, called The Lucky Ones, while playing their guitars.

The pair have been playing together since Jack was five and will tell judges Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Amanda Holden that the song is about how lucky they are to have what they do.

Cowell, who is father to four-year-old son Eric, tells them: 'It reminded me a bit of my boy.'

Saturday night's show will also see comedy magician Mandy Muden, from London, attempt to land a place in the next round of the competition with her act.
