Nick 'The Flying Brick' Delves - a former Monster Raving Loony Party candidate - has not progressed through to the 'Britain's Got Talent' semi-finals because his act was ''too silly''
A Monster Raving Loony Party candidate has been dropped from 'Britain's Got Talent' after his audition was deemed "too silly".
Nick 'The Flying Brick' Delves - who tried out for the show weeks after taking just 0.4 per cent of votes in the Oldham East by-election - is "gutted" after his act, which featured 20 people doing synchronised swimming moves in shopping trolleys, was blocked by producers from reaching the semi-final stage of the competition, despite initially receiving a yes vote.
Nick said: "We rehearsed some amazing displays, ordered new costumes and souped-up the trolleys 0 and it has all been for nothing. I'm gutted."
Despite his axing, 'Britain's Got Talent' chiefs expect Nick and his Hot Pot Theatre troupe can still find success elsewhere.
A spokesperson told The Sun newspaper: "I'm sure Nick's unusual act will find a niche in the cabaret world. It was very unusual."
The new series of 'Britain's Got Talent' - which sees judge Amanda Holden joined by David Hasselhoff and Michael McIntyre in place of departed Piers Morgan and Simon Cowell - returns to ITV1 on Saturday (16.04.11).
