Right calm down ladies, flying in first is US Air Forceman Charlie, 'Yes Sir' Martinez-Henandez. At his first audition nearly all of the ladies, and most of the men for that matter, fainted.

After agreeing to go solo from her husband 'Hip' at the room audition, Scarlett 'Kitten' Quinn was back. I really like Scarlett, she has a buzz and energy about her that stands her out from the crowd. Well done Kitten, see you at bootcamp.

Fresh from last night's Team Midas success with Lucy Kay, we are back and ready for action in the shape of our Midas (Golden) buzzer act Bars & Melody. Is it greedy to want two acts in the final?

What do a boyband, a magician, a singer and a dance troupe all have in common? They are all in the BGT final 2014. This week is flying over and I can't believe we are already on semi-final three. Who will join them?

I laughed my head off during Ricky K's first audition will he improve with his second?  Well, sadly no, it started off ok, but then went a bit flat. I agreed with Simon, it was nowhere near as good as the first audition. Sorry Ricky.

12 year Schoolboy Ellis James Chick gets the ball rolling with his version of 'You Make Me Feel so Young' by Michael Buble. What an amazing voice. Note perfect. I'm very impressed. An easy set of yeses.

As we hit week five, the question I keep being asked, apart from have I met Simon Cowell, is when will I press my golden (Midas) buzzer? Well, time will tell. I am looking for that special someone. Wouldn't it be funny if we ever had someone audition on BGT called Simon Cowell?

Brothers Shenton and Bizzi Dixon arrived at the auditions together but were quite clearly in competition. Tribute performer Shenton was up first.  Again it wasn't bad, but not enough for the coaches or Midas chair to turn. Can his brother do it?

Will horse loving Fiona Kelly jump in to the next round. Well no, she sadly fell at the first hurdle. The nerves were there for all to hear. With coaching and controlling those nerves, I think Fiona should audition for another show (cough) BGT.
