'Coronation Street' star Kym Marsh is said to be "gutted" after her daughter Emily has been axed from 'Britain's Got Talent' and won't appear in the live semi-final, despite impressing the judges with her audition
Kym Marsh was "gutted" her daughter was axed from 'Britain's Got Talent'.
The 'Coronation Street' actress was disappointed Emily has not been put through to the live semi finals, despite impressing all four judges - Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon - during her initial audition, which won't be aired.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Emily did a cracking job on the day, but sadly there just isn't enough time to show everyone on stage.
"Kym was gutted Emily didn't make it on screen. She was hoping that appearing on the biggest Saturday night entertainment show would kick-start Emily's showbiz career."
The entire judging panel was blown away by the 16-year-old singer's rendition of 'I Don't Know Why' by Norah Jones.
Simon Cowell had seen a recording of her performance and was very impressed, with the remaining three mentors all voted 'yes' to send her through.
Back in February, Kym took to Twitter to voice her support and wish her "baby" all the best in her audition.
She wrote: "Wishing my baby all the luck in the world today! Too proud of you emz. (sic)"
Kym - who appeared on talent show Popstars and formed band Hear'Say in 2001 - was on hand in Manchester, and Alesha told Emily she has a "fantastic teacher" to guide her through her career.
She said: "You've had a fantastic teacher then, in your mum."
Meanwhile, David praised Kym's daughter for being "so brave" by auditioning for the show despite the pressure of her mum's great success.
