BGT's Henry Gallagher to ask girl out

'Britain's Got Talent' sensation Henry Gallagher is set to ask out his schoolgirl crush who he wrote his song about.

The 12-year-old musician was too shy to approach the girl who inspired his song 'Lightning', but getting four votes to go through from judges Amanda Holden, Simon Cowell, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon on the ITV show on Saturday night (18.04.15) has given him the confidence boost he needed to ask for a date upon his return to school today (20.04.15).

Henry said: "Fingers crossed I'll get a date! Amanda Holden said I would get her within two seconds but I'm still a bit shy. Before I was like, 'No way'. Now I'm, 'Maybe.' Now I'm a lot more confident."

While the Wigan schoolboy hasn't named the girl in question yet, he has complimented her a lot, and wants to take her to the cinema for their first date.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Henry said: "Whenever I see her at school she's always in a good mood. I've never seen her be not happy. And she's just so pretty, it's amazing. Only my mum knows who it is. She's told me to ask her out. I'd like to take her to the cinema to watch something we'd both like."

Henry is now writing a follow-up song called 'Best Thing Ever', about how he would feel if he and his crush were dating.
