A Doncaster singing duo aged in their 70s and 80s proved age is no barrier after they reached the grand final of Britain's Got Talent last night.

The Pensionalities - Malcolm White, aged 75, and Henry Hall, aged 84 - wowed the judges in the semi-final on ITV last night with their version of One Direction's History.

The duo - who were previously called The Pensionnaires - were stunned and said: "I have no words."

Malcolm, a former, engineer, and Henry, who ran Cusworth's motor company, met through Probus - a club for retired and semi-retired professional people - and they teamed up to do charitable events before taking a chance and entering Britain's Got Talent.

They had earned glowing praise at an earlier audition for their rendition of Frank Sinatra’s You Make Me Feel So Young.

Judge Simon Cowell said: "You are the kind of act that you feel good after seeing."

They will join Sheffield singing sensation Kyle Tomlinson in Saturday's live final.

The Steel City teenager made it through to the final after an earlier audition.

In 2014, judge David Walliams told the youngster he needed singing lessons.

But the comedian was made to eat his words three years later when Kyle's flawless rendition of the emotional track Hallelujah wowed the judges.

Walliams then became the first judge to press the golden buzzer, which automatically sent Kyle straight through to the semi-finals.

After the 15-year-old had finished the song, Walliams said: "It was a really, really moving performance and I’m really glad that you came back and proved me wrong."

Simon Cowell added: “You gave every single ounce you could possibly give to that performance."

Fellow judge Alesha Dixon described his story as being like a “fairytale.”

Kyle said: "I was absolutely gutted but he was spot-on what he said. So I sat down and thought about it, and the day after I went to my mum and dad and I went: ‘I need singing lessons.’

“My nanan and grandad have paid for them every day since three years ago. It’s £15 every 30 minutes, and once a week, so it’s a lot of money.

“But they are thrilled for me now."

He added: "They couldn’t be there as my granddad is in hospital with cancer, but he was waiting by the phone to hear, and he was so happy when I told him.

“I am going to dedicate my semi-final song to him, because he’ll be watching, and I 100 per cent want to try to win this for him.”
