A sharp comedian will take the stage on Britain’s Got Talent to impress the judges and inspire his son to believe in himself.
Xel Blake, a 33-year-old property manager from west London, will joke ahead of his stand-up comedy routine with judge Simon Cowell that he would make him a good offer on a kitchen if he voted him through to the next round.
The ITV talent show returned to screens for the first time in two years on Saturday and will continue on Sunday night for the second part of the Double Bill weekend.
Viewers will also see 13-year-old Dante Marvin bring a humorous attitude to the stage as he performs a comedy song about his Brittle Bone Disease.
Aneeshwar Kunchala, a seven-year-old schoolboy from Warrington, Cheshire, recites his own poem about his passion for conservation and saving the planet.
Dogs and their human companions will also feature on the Sunday show when Doctor Louise Geller will attempt to sing an opera with her dog, Jasper.
Meanwhile, 25-year-old Amber and her two-year-old dog, Nymeria, from the Netherlands, perform a nimble trick routine.
In Saturday’s opening episode, Loren Allred, 32, revealed during her audition that she was the voice behind hit song Never Enough from the 2018 musical film The Greatest Showman.

She admitted she wasn’t known for the track because she used to be “more comfortable singing backstage,” but now wanted to give the song a face.
After an impressive performance of the track, the audience and the judges were impressed, especially Amanda Holden, who presented her with the coveted Golden Buzzer, which automatically gave her a place in the live semi-finals.
The episode also saw the judging panel – featuring Cowell, Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams – reconvene after the show was shut down in 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Britain’s Got Talent continues on Sunday at 7.35pm on ITV.
