‘I’d like to hear more,’ Simon Cowell tells angry impressionist on Britain’s Got Talent

The final night of auditions for Britain’s Got Talent 2015, looked like turning into a very sour event when impressionist Andrew Fleming took the stage.

“This is what I do for a living and it keeps me unemployed,’ Michael told the judges. “If there was an MOT test for people on TV, a lot of them would fail. This is an unfair business.”

That stunned the audience and the judges.

So did Andrew’s performance: Meat Loaf singing “My Old Man’s A Dustman”, Cilla Black flattering Amanda Holden… The audience loved Andrew - and so did the judges.

“Very, very funny,” David Walliams said.

“Your impressions are second to none,” added Amanda.

“Such a good audition,” Alesha Dixon said.

“You’re refreshingly bitter,” Simon told Andrew. “I thought the act was great. One of my favourites. The angry impersonator… I think it suits you.

“I’d like to hear more of that in your act, how much you hate people. Let it all out.”

And Andrew will get the chance to do just that as he was put through to the Britain’s Got Talent live semi-finals, which start on ITV, Monday, May 25, 7.30pm.
