A contestant on Britain's Got Talent shocked his girlfriend when he proposed to her following his performance on the show.

Saturday night's episode of the talent competition featured the show's first on-stage proposal when Jacob Jones, a barber instructor from Surrey, proposed to his girlfriend Faye Compton.

Faye, who entered Jacob in the competition, was brought on-stage by her partner who got down on one knee and asked her to marry him.

Before Jacob proposed to Faye, he had received four yeses from the judges, Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon, for his performance of Joe Cocker's You Are So Beautiful.

Also on Saturday's episode, Simon Cowell praised a singer who survived the Grenfell Tower blaze for her courage in appearing on the show.

Leanne Mya received a standing ovation and four yeses from the judging panel after she sang Sam Smith's Lay Me Down.

Before singing, she said: "The last 19 months have been really, really difficult. Very briefly, I'm a survivor from Grenfell Tower and I just made a decision that I'm going to do something positive, and try to make something positive out of something negative."

Seventy-two people were killed in the Grenfell Tower fire in 2017.

Cowell said after Mya's performance: "I think this is really important, what you just did. I'm actually surprised every year at how many amazing people we meet on this show who have the courage like you to share something.

"I love things that do make a difference and that was something really special, and actually, I think the song, for me, took on a whole different meaning."

Mind reading couple wow judges

Mind-reading couple James Harrington and Marina Liani wowed Cowell and Holden with an act that saw the judges reading each other's minds.

Meanwhile, 61-year-old Michael Sandwick from New York, received two yeses for a bizarre performance that saw him sing then end his act with a pole-dancing sequence performed to Climb Every Mountain from The Sound Of Music.

"What the bloody hell was that?" joked Cowell, adding: "Look, without sounding rude, genuinely at one point I thought I was in a nightmare."
