Britain’s Got Talent runners-up Jonathan and Charlotte don’t regret rejecting Simon Cowell’s advice to go their separate ways in last year’s show admitting their lives wouldn’t have changed for the better without each other.
The pair, who blend pop music with opera through their singing, defied Simon’s wishes during the contest and decided to stick together as an act rather than Charlotte leave Jonathan to continue on his own.
When asked if they have any regrets, Charlotte told STV: “No way. We wouldn’t have done everything we’ve done this year if we weren’t a duo. Going against Simon’s suggestion is what powered us through the show. We believed in what we came in with and we were right in the end.
“It has made our friendship stronger because we didn’t just go chasing fame and forget about each other.”
Jonathan added: “Sticking with Charlotte was a great decision. We had sung a bit together before but now we sing all the time and it’s so much fun.”
And the pair’s life completely changed just days after they first appeared on Britain’s Got Talent – they are now stopped in the street when they are recognised and have had numerous offers of lucrative work since.
Charlotte said: “OMG the moment we left the stage everything flipped on its head. When we walked out of the studio loads of people wanted our autographs and I was thinking, we’re just the same people we were last week.
“The next day we were in a meeting, then we were talking about an album and we were in the studio. Now we have a gold album which is so weird. Britain’s Got Talent was the best experience of my life and I would do it all over again.”
Jonathan concluded: “It’s more like how has it not changed! Everything is different. I now have a job doing what I love. For me, going on the show was the perfect thing to do.”
Jonathan and Charlotte will soon be rehearsing for their tour which begins in June this year.
