A 10-year-old girl who sings wartime songs, a ballet dancing dog and a footballer-turned-dancer are among the hopefuls who have impressed 'Britain's Got Talent' judges

'Britain's Got Talent' judges were wowed by a 10-year-old singer.

Chloe Hickinbottom surprised the panel - Piers Morgan, Amanda Holden and guest Louis Walsh, who was filling in for sick Simon Cowell - at the audition in Birmingham with her rendition of Dame Vera Lynn's wartime favourite 'White Cliffs of Dover'.

Amanda told the youngster: "I wasn't expecting that. You have an old-fashioned big voice."

Piers added: "I've never heard anything like that. You could be 40 or 50 years old."

'X Factor' judge Louis was also impressed, predicting: "I think you could sell records."

Also a hit with the judges was Tina Humphrey and her dog Chandi, with the pooch showing off his ballet and quickstep skills.

Amazed Piers said: "You are the most talented dog I've ever seen on this show. She's an accomplished dancer."

However, the pair face stiff competition from Tobias Mead, 22, a body-popper whose love of dance has caused a family rift.

He revealed: "When I was younger I used to play a lot of football and my dad really wanted me to make something out of it. There were arguments and discussion but I wanted to pursue dance.

"I don't speak to my brothers anymore because I dance - which I think is stupid. But as the arguments grew and grew, we got further and further apart."
