Rib injury won’t keep Sam Kelly out of Britain’s Got Talent

Spixworth singer Sam Kelly has rubbished rumours that he might have to pull out of Britain's Got Talent after suffering an injury playing football.

Reports in a national newspaper yesterday said he could miss the live shows after breaking four ribs, but the 19-year-old took to Twitter immediately to set the record straight.

Replying to followers asking about the article, he wrote: 'I have no idea what that was about haha... Yeah, I hurt my ribs playing footy a couple of weeks ago, wasn't anything major tho!'

He said to another: 'They're fine thanks for asking! Won't stop me playing footie let alone singing.'

Sam, 19, wowed judges with a version of Adele's Make You Feel My Love at his live audition, with David Walliams telling the former Sprowston High School student he had been 'blown away'.
