Britain’s Got Talent’s episode this week saw Ben Nickless, a man from Lancashire, take to the stage.

After 20 years of performances, he decided to audition for the talent show.

He started the audition as a ventriloquist with a puppet before beginning a quick fire round of impressions of famous faces and characters, grabbing the audience's attention.

Impressions included Morgan Freeman, Dot Cotton, Marge Simpson, John Bishop and Holly Willoughby.

Then he started to sing in Gary Barlow’s voice, continuing to make the judges and audience laugh.

You can watch or re-watch Ben’s audition, if you’re looking for some light-hearted content, via the Britain’s Got Talent YouTube channel here. 

He impressed both the judges and the audience and left the stage with four yeses, sending him through to the next round of auditions.
