'Britain's Got Talent' hopeful Tracey Moran once handed in £33,000 after discovering it on a plane seat and is still waiting award a reward for her honesty.
The airplane cleaner - who wowed the judges with her dance routine to the 'Grease' theme tune on last Saturday's show (30.04.11) - found the cash and some suspicious white powder and pills in a washbag as she cleaned a jet at Heathrow airport, and immediately handed it over to her bosses.
Although they promised her a financial reward, six years later she is still waiting for it.
Recalling the incident, Tracey told The Sun newspaper: "I found it on one of the seats. I thought it was a bag of toiletries so I opened it.
"Inside were rolls of dollars. The money was surrounded by some pills and powder. I think it was drugs. Whoever brought it on to the plane had maybe chickened out from trying to take it through security so left it on board.
"I handed it to my boss, then we gave it into the man that makes sure we're on time with cleaning and preparing the plane. He said I would get a reward but I haven't seen him since."
However, Tracey says she is now concentrating on wining 'Britain's Got Talent' after making it through to the live semi-finals in the hope of being able to perform at the Royal Variety Performance in December.
She said: "I love the Royal Family. I cried all through the wedding."
