A drag cabaret performer with a glittery gold beard will be hoping to convince Britain's Got Talent judges he is fit to perform for the Queen.

As auditions come to a close, 23-year-old Danny Beard from Manchester will take to the stage in a sequin skirt, heels and dramatic face paint for a rousing performance of Sweet Transvestite from the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Simon Cowell even gets a mention in the song - as Beard points to him while singing the lyric, "I've been making a man with a tan".

The winner of the ITV talent show, now in its 10th year, will get the chance to perform at the Royal Variety Show.
