BGT child star breaks silence on shock revelation that he’s been on rival show

Britain’s Got Talent child star Jack Goodacre wowed viewers during Saturday night’s episode with a sensational singing performance.

Schoolboy Jack, 12, and dad Tim, 43, impressed the judges with their own original song ‘The Lucky One’s’, which they performed on their acoustic guitars.

The father and son duo, from Norwich, shook off the nerves received a golden buzzer from Simon Cowell.

Then came the shocking revelation that young Jack had already found fame on The Voice’s kids series and the School Of Rock musical.


Getting straight to the controversial issue, This Morning presenter Phillip Schofield asked: "You’d done The Voice hadn’t you. Did you think ‘oh that’s going to get in the way of doing BGT?’."

Confident Jack replied: "No I just thought it would be an even greater experience if I could do it with my dad. It wouldn’t be the same, it really wouldn’t, if I didn’t do it with him."

Jack, who has been singing since the age of 5, is a part of the creative aspect of the duo and helps his dad pen their hit songs.


The schoolboy said he would hate to do a cover song and wants to sing more original tracks to prove they are "not a one off".

Praising his son, dad Tim said: "It’s too much. You can’t put it into words. It eclipses everything – singing with my son.

"The support from the public has just been phenomenal. We can’t walk six steps outside without people stopping us. It’s been unreal."

Amanda Holden was left in tears, Dec Donnelly held his hands to his heart, while Simon Cowell led the standing ovation which was followed by an elated audience.

They were then stunned when Simon reached over to press the golden buzzer and send the pair through to the live semi-finals.

On that magical moment, Jack said: "It was just incredible. As soon as he pressed it, it was all a blur. I can’t remember anything he [Simon] said."
