A TALENTED schoolboy who wowed thousands with his ventriloquist act on Britain’s Got Talent has said it was a ‘life-changing experience’.

Armed with his puppet, Reece Daly from Ellesmere Port took to the stage during the talent show auditions to entertain packed crowds and three celebrity judges.

The 15-year-old, who had only started ventriloquy nine months ago practising in his living room in front of his parents, divided the judges with his comic act before getting the thumbs-up for the next round.

But despite entertaining the 2,000-strong crowd and gaining a ‘yes’ from Amanda Holden and Michael McIntyre the teenager failed to make it to the semi-finals because the judges feared he wasn’t ready.

Reece told ITV viewers: “I went on the stage and I saw loads of people, it was just so nerve-racking. I kept thinking I am going to slip up but I just got into my routine and did what I had rehearsed.

“I am quite new to this whole thing, the biggest crowd I have performed to was at the British Legion, so to have been here is just amazing.”
