Collabro have been named as the early favourite to win this year’s series of Britain’s Got Talent.

The four piece boyband shocked and surprised the judges when they auditioned for the ITV show and instead of a played out pop hit and a One Direction impression, the lads wowed Amanda Holden, Simon Cowell, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon with an accomplished and emotional rendition of Stars from the hit musical Les Miserables.

Amanda Holden wept as the lads performed their sad tune and afterwards praised the band saying:

“You have reduced me to tears. I could burst with pride for you because that was bloody brilliant.”

Ladbrokes have subsequently installed the lads as the 7/1 favourites to win the series later this year, stating that groups have proved popular on the show in previous years and recognising the band’s already large fan base, who have named themselves the ‘Collaborators’ on Twitter.

Also seen as frontrunners is 79 year old dancer Paddy Jones and her Spanish partner Nico, who are being backed with odds of 8/1.

The pair were buzzed by Simon Cowell but later landed an apology from the music mogul, after they showcased a lively, energetic and at some points dangerous routine, despite Paddy’s advancing years.

Opera singer Lucy Kay is another front runner and also has odds of 8/1, after her stunning rendition of Vissi d’art.

Lucy may have received some negative comments on Twitter last night though as she tweeted her fans saying:

“Oops!I don’t think people like me retweeting everyone’s lovely comments! I’ll give it a rest for a while so I’m not annoying anyone else! X”

Meanwhile Collabro thanked their fans for all their support over the past few days, tweeting:

“We love our #Collaborators. All your pictures are amazing. Thanks so much #Collabro #BGT”

    Collabro was brilliant, I loved the way the taller guy on the right teared up and was so amazed.

    But I’m also amazed that the writer of this article, Lisa McGarry wrote that Collabro was a “four” member group. Britain may have talent but I question the basic math skills.

    Collabro were brilliant and deserve to go all the way. Handsome, clean cut, talented boys. I would love to hear them sing “Anthem” from Chess – think that would be a winner!
