That’s it – the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent 2022 are over, with only Sunday’s final left to go for this year’s competition.

Tonight’s live show was eventful to say the least, and in the end, comedian Axel Blake and environmentalist Aneeshwar Kunchala reigned supreme as the latest acts to make it to the final stage.

Axel – who was Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer act during the audition stage of the series – returned all guns blazing, reducing the judges and audience to fits of laughter.

He ended up being named the winner of the show, after securing the majority of the public votes.

More to follow.

Britain’s Got Talent returns on Sunday at 7.30pm on ITV and ITV Hub.
