He then told Carol about the story of how he and Joan, who died two years ago, met.

Colin, who joined the army age 15, said he met her at a camp dance.

He said: “She wasn’t even supposed to be there.”

The pair then married, however he had to leave her for two years while in Korea.

However the pair reunited and spent their lives together – retiring and moving to Norfolk.

He said there they used to sing and dance together.

Colin, who was married to Joan for 66 years, also revealed he still speaks to her. 

He explained: “I still say good morning to her, I’ve got her picture in my room.

“I talk to her all the time, as daft as it sounds.”

Carol replied: “It’s not daft.”

Colin also said that Joan would tell him to stay modest over his BGT appearance, adding: “She’s say ‘Don’t get ahead of yourself lad’.”

He is joining comedians Kojo Anim Siobhan Phillips in the final so far, as well as magic acts 4MG and Dave & Finn. They are also joined by singing act Flakefleet Primary School.

These acts will be joined by the remaining four acts decided in tonight and Friday’s shows, as well as a wildcard choice.
