An oversized Take That tribute band called Take Fat have impressed the judges on 'Britain's Got Talent' with their comedy dance routines and strong vocals

A Take That tribute band have wowed the judges on 'Britain's Got Talent'.

Take Fat - featuring Blobbie Williams, Gary Lardo, Jason Chocolate Orange, Howard McDonalds and the group's only slim member, Mark Growin - received a standing ovation from the crowd and plaudits from the judging panel for their comedy dance routine and impressive vocals.

Amanda Holden said: "Do you need oxygen? Or a pizza? I thought you were brilliant and funny.

"That was ace. Your dancing is rubbish but as an idea it's brilliant."

David Hasselhoff added: "Maybe you are what I will look like when my career goes."

Although third judge Michael McIntyre originally buzzed the group - who performed a medley of the British group's hits including 'Could it be Magic?', 'Shine', 'Pray' and 'Relight my Fire' at the Birmingham auditions - he quickly realised his mistake saying: "I really like the idea."

Meanwhile, comedian Michael has insisted he is not trying to be the show's new 'Mr. Nasty' after he made a nine-year-old boy cry by pressing his buzzer before the boy began his audition.

Michael - who has taken over from usually acerbic judge Simon Cowell -told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It was a joke and I jumped up to sort it out and I sorted it out. I apologised and I put him through because he was very good and showed promise.

"I am not being ruthless and shattering people's dreams - that's the opposite of what I want to do.

"I took the job because I love the show and I have spent a month trying to make people's dreams come true. Ruthlessness is not something that comes easily.

"It been a very intense month but the best I've had in my career because it's been so much fun."
