But 89-year-old Colin, won the hearts of the nation with his emotional rendition of Love Changes Everything.

After he was announced as the winner, he told hosts Ant and Dec: “I’m absolutely astonished.

“It’s incredible, I don’t know what to say. I’m stuck for words for a change. ‘Thank you very much, all of you, all the backing I’ve had. It’s been wonderful.”

As the winner of BGT, the singing star won £250,000 and performed at the Royal Variety Performance 2020.

He later revealed his winnings were going to the Royal Chelsea Hospital, where he lives.

Colin told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning: “First of all the hospital, because we are a charity you know, we’re always collection for something.

“And we’ve got a new visitor’s centre we want to build, an activity centre, I’d love to think I set the whole things off.”

Colin bagged a place in the live shows after singing Wind Beneath My Wings at his first audition, after dedicating it to his late wife.

Afterwards, David told him: “There is not a dry eye in the house.

“It was just the most perfect tribute and you sang with such heart that it affected us deeply. It was beautiful.”
