Greig fails to make final of Britain’s Got Talent

SCOTLAND’s only contender for the final of Britain’s Got Talent - self-confessed geek Greig Stewart - failed to make the final.

The software engineer from Milngavie (27) was one of nine acts who performed live on Thursday night, ahead of Saturday’s final, playing among other songs, Gary Newman’s Cars on his laser harp.

Judges Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden were not impressed with his performance, but he had the support of fellow panellists David Walliams and Alesha Dixon.

However it was the public vote that sealed his fate with singer Ryan O’Shaughnessy and synchronised swimmers Aquabatics securing the most votes to get the chance of playing in front of Her Majesty the Queen.

The Glasgow University graduate tweeted afterwards: “I had a shaky night last night, but did the best I could despite the buzzes and the 10 million strong live audience. Thanks for the support.”
