Zoltan Szucs, the founder of Hungarian shadow theatre dance troupe Attraction, who of course won Britain’s Got Talent last night, has revealed that he and his fellow dancers may now consider moving to the UK after being “embraced” by the British public.
The group won after performing a very British themed routine last night which saw them pay homage to the Queen and run through a potted history of the British Isles, making reference to the war, Winston Churchill, and to last year’s Olympics, which were of course held in London.
And in today’s Daily Star Sunday, Zoltan revealed, “I respect the British public so much and I think the British public respect me…
“We were worried about entering the competition and did worry what the British public would think about us.
“We didn’t know if people would vote for us but this has proved it is an international contest.
“The British public have been amazing.
“I’d like to move to London, it’s a lovely city.
“People here have been amazing. I think we might move here now the show has finished.”
However, he also hopes that Simon Cowell will oversee the troupe’s launch in Las Vegas, after the Royal Variety performance that is.
He said, “Our biggest dream is performing in front of the royal family. My second dream is to perform in Las Vegas – I have never been to Las Vegas.
“We would love to make the show a lot bigger and better. To put on a big theatre show like Cirque du Soleil, that is our dream.
“Hopefully now we can all do it full time and turn it into a career.”
And as to what their friends and family back in Hungary make of their BGT success, Zoltan said, “The Hungarian people know what we are doing, it is big news there.
“We haven’t been back since the semi-final but we have been told we are in all the papers and on the news.”
Finally, when asked what he and his co-stars intend to do with the £250,000 prize money, Zoltan said, “When we applied to the show we didn’t know how much money you could win.
“We don’t need anything, we live a very nice, quiet life with two children. It’s very nice – they go to school and we work in the rehearsal rooms.
“We don’t need money to have a better life but we do need money to make the show better.
“It would be nice to be able to buy a bigger projector.”
