Alesha Dixon used her golden buzzer on Britain’s Got Talent on Saturday – for the youngest ever solo act to win an automatic place in the live semi-finals.

Giorgia Borg, 10, won one of just five golden buzzer places when she performed her soulful original song ‘Ten’ before Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha in episode four of the auditions.

The vocalist, from Malta, grinned as gold confetti fell from the ceiling when the coveted button was pressed by the Boy Does Nothing hitmaker.

Giorgia came third in the Malta Junior Eurovision Song Contest with the same song in 2018.

She also placed first at the Italian Una Stella Sta Nascendo in 2015 for Best Junior Talent and came first at the 2017 Sanremo Junior, Smooth Radio reported.

The singer, who has been writing her own songs since she was seven, said of her time at the Malta Junior Eurovision: ‘I auditioned at the heats stage, but I didn’t get through. There was a much bigger crowd at BGT audition and it was much more exciting. 

She said: 'I felt like I was in a dream. I was very excited and couldn't believe it was actually happening...'
