Nervous Alice cries with happiness

Nervous wreck Alice Fredenham broke down in tears again on Britain's Got Talent - but this time she was crying with happiness after being put through to the live semi-finals.

The singer, who was rejected by the show's BBC rival The Voice, vowed to start "believing" in herself after Simon Cowell told her it had been easy to put her through.

She was one of 45 contestants who made it to the next round along with Welsh bricklayer Robbie Kennedy and impressionist Francine Lewis.

The beauty therapist from Hertfordshire, who shook with fright during her first appearance on the show, said it was "torturous" waiting to find out her fate from Cowell.

She said: "I need to just start believing in myself, I think that's a good place to start."

Among the other semi-finalists revealed on the show were teenage comic Jack Carroll from Halifax. Carroll, who has cerebral palsy, said: "I can't believe that out of all these different people I've come this far."

The final 45 will now perform in the live semi-finals for the chance of winning £250,000 and a spot at the Royal Variety Performance.
