A father-and-son duo from Norfolk will be taking to the Britain's Got Talent stage once again in tonight's semi-final.

Jack and Tim Goodacre wowed judges in their first audition with their song The Lucky Ones and went straight through to the live shows after earning Simon Cowell's golden buzzer.

The pair, from Eccles near Attleborough, said on Twitter yesterday: 'Nervous and super excited train ride down to London for our semi-final appearance.

'We hope you enjoy our new music.'

In an earlier interview on This Morning they revealed they would be singing another original song for their semi-final performance.

Jack said: 'In or out, I want to do it on my terms. I would hate to do a cover, we have to keep doing what we're doing, prove we are not a one-off, we can do more.'

Prior to BGT, Jack, aged 12, had already appeared on The Voice Kids and starred in School of Rock in the West End. The pair are a familiar sight in Norwich where they often perform on the streets, Jack has previously been hailed as the city's youngest busker.
