Britain's Got Talent contestant James Smith was kicked out of school for three weeks after flashing a group of female students
Britain's Got Talent's James Smith was suspended for flashing.
The 15-year-old singer - who impressed judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon with his rendition of Gnarls Barkley's 'Crazy' on Tuesday night's semi-final (27.05.14) - was ordered to leave school for two weeks after exposing himself to a group of female students.
He told The Sun newspaper: "The teacher had gone out of the classroom and we were all egging each other on to do dares.
"About five us of lads pulled our pants down and thought we were being hilarious.
"But the teachers didn't see the funny side and I got suspended along with two other lads."
After James - who attended Coopers Company and Coborn School in Upminster, Essex - had his punishment extended from a two week to three week suspension his parents decided to take him out of the school.
However close friends of the hopeful believe his time playing the "class clown" is over and he is now fully dedicated to becoming a pop star.
A friend said: "Music is his life. He went on Britain's Got Talent as he really wants Simon Cowell to give him a break. He can sing and play the guitar and he's cute too... girls love him."
