Stern Guinness World Records official steals show on Britain's Got Talent

By Katie Archer

The stand-out star was not even a contestant.

Britain’s Got Talent featured another golden buzzer act on Saturday night, but the show was stolen by a very stern Guinness World Records official.

Balloon modeller Ryan Tracey brought the official with him to monitor his attempt at fashioning balloon animals against the clock while blindfolded.

However, his act was somewhat overshadowed by her attention to detail in following Guinness World Records procedure – including stopping his celebrations at the end of his attempt to check they were accurate representations of the animals he said they were.

But when the judges complained about her taking her job so seriously, viewers turned on the panel to stick up for the official.

Meanwhile, comedian Daliso Chaponda was a popular choice for Amanda Holden’s golden buzzer pick.

St Patrick’s Junior Choir, who gave a rendition of Keane’s Somewhere Only We Know, was another hit with viewers.

:: Britain’s Got Talent returns on May 6 at 8pm on ITV.
