We are family! Grandfather-and-granddaughter double act wow the judges on Britain's Got Talent


    Double act: Ted, 92, and his 21-year-old granddaughter Grace are the stars of the show with their double act

    With a 70-year age gap they are perhaps the most unlikely of musical duos.
    But 92-year-old singer Ted and his 21-year-old granddaughter are set to steal the show tonight.

    The pair have developed a singing double act that plays to both their strengths in a bid to appeal across the generations.

    Dressed in a tweed hat, gray cardigan, and chino trousers the pensioner drew cheers from the crowd as he explained how he wanted to make his granddaughter proud.

    Ted said: ‘I used to be a professional singer in pubs and clubs and I gave it up when my first daughter was born. When Grace came along I was unearthed again. I don’t want to let her down.’

    Viewers will see him perform If I Were A Rich Man from musical classic Fiddler on the Roof and then dance as his granddaughter arrives on stage and sings Gwen Stefani’s If I was a Rich Girl’.

    The show is facing an uphill struggle after losing a million viewers for the opening show - compared to last year.

    According to ITV1 figures, the first show of the fifth series drew a peak audience of 10.9million on Saturday - 1.3million down on last year’s opening night.

    The beginning of the 2010 series drew a peak of 12.2million and captured almost half the television audience, pulling in an average of 10.6million. This time the prime-time average was 9.9million.

    Many fans felt that the programme has been weakened by Cowell’s absence.

    The music mogul has pulled out as a judge during the audition rounds to focus on the launch of his U.S. X Factor series. He will return for next month’s live shows.
