An 80-year-old great-grandmother is set to wow the 'Britain's Got Talent' judges tomorrow (08.05.10). Scottish singer Janey - who has seven children, 12 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren - impresses the judging panel with her vocals as she attempts to become a star and performs Edith Piaf's 'Je Ne Regrette Rien'.

She told presenters Ant and Dec: "I like singing, my friends say go in for it, better late than never.

"I've had a great life, seven kids, hard times, happy times, no regrets."

While the Glaswegian grandma leaves the panel - consisting of Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan - shocked by her voice, fellow hopefuls Othelio left the audience stunned for a different reason.

Husband-and-wife duo Deborah and Craig met at a karaoke competition 15 years ago and are confident they have the skills to succeed in the competition.

Craig tells the panel: "When we go out on stage, the world will take us by their hands, our voices are crisp, our music is crisp, our music is in date, the world will love is, the internet will blow up on us - we're gonna have to hire The A-Team.

"Simon Cowell will take notice of us, when we walk out he will say wow and when we leave the stage he will say that's interesting."

However, the music mogul looks unimpressed when Craig starts rapping alongside his spouse's shaky vocals.

The judging trio will watch on in bemusement again as they watch dance act the Chippendoubles perform a comedic routine whilst wearing James Bond, David Beckham and Gordon Ramsay masks.
