Britain's Got Talent - Paddy - 2014

Britain’s Got Talent star Paddy Jones has spoken about being the first act to be given a direct access to the talent show final after being buzzed through.

Speaking with This Morning’s Easter hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford,  Britain’s Got Talent star Paddy Jones, 79, explained what it was like to get the first golden buzzer. She said,

“It was really special. To be the first act to get it was really really super.”

Admitting that the early buzz from Simon did not affect her, Paddy said,

“I didn’t see very much because Nico was moving me around… it wasn’t like I was stood there and could see the audience and get nervous – I was just going around like a whirling dervish!”

On her dancing experience, Paddy explained,

“I was a trained ballet dancer and used to do local pantomime… but I gave it up when I was twenty two when I got married. With a husband and four children there was no time for dancing – but when this came up I checked with the kids and they said this is what dad would have wanted – but I didn’t expect that!”

Britain’s Got More Talent host Stephen Mulhern said,

“When I met Paddy before her performance on More Talent, I said to her ‘I wouldn’t be surprised if you got the first Golden Buzzer…”

When asked if she is worried about Nico dropping her, Paddy replied,

“I trust him explicitly – he’s never dropped me in all the years that we’ve been doing it. And touch wood, he never drops me. It’s inspiration for others.”
