Richard Jones for BGT final

'Britain's Got Talent's Richard Jones has made it through to the live final on Saturday (28.05.16) after burning Amanda Holden's autobiography in last night's (24.05.16) show.

The talented magician - who serves in the British armed forces - may have left the blonde judge stunned when he made a page from her book go up in flames and materialise in a green bottle, but that didn't stop him securing a spot in the forthcoming last round after he won over the public and dominated the votes.

Amanda gushed after his impressive trick: "I really really want to see you in the final. You fought for this country. The whole nation is behind you... it's not a trick, it's magic."

Boogie Storm have also found themselves in the final at the weekend after they stunned viewers with their dance, which was performed to a medley of songs from the late Michael Jackson, Sir Tom Jones and award-winning ballet 'Swan Lake'.

But it wasn't an easy time for the dance troupe as they were forced to rely on the public vote after the judges - including Amanda, Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams - failed to agree on whether they wanted Boogie Storm or Jack Higgins, who has been dubbed the new Billy Elliot, in the final.

Simon - who chose the dance troupe as his golden buzzer act - and Amanda were certain they wanted Boogie Storm to take the place, while Alesha and David had their hearts set on Jack.

Simon said of Boogie Storm: "We are possibly looking at the winners of Britain's Got Talent 2016 ... I absolutely love whatever you are. I know that we can't talk to each other, I know that you can't talk back to me. As I said in the auditions, I have literally waited all my life to see this. .. this is what we're looking for."

However, Jack still has the chance to perform in the final if he's chosen by the public later this week as the show's wild card.
