Ashley commented on the performance: “I love the fact that someone is making science cool. I’m just super excited and loved your audition but if I’m being honest I thought tonight felt like one big build up but without the big pay off moment.

“Some of the magic we’ve seen this competition has such hard hitting punchlines, I think this just fell short.”

David added: “I enjoyed it. I found it at times hard to follow but I think that was because we were part of it and not looking at it. I think you did very well.”

Alesha said: “If I’m being honest I did prefer the audition but I feel you created a good atmosphere in the room, it was mysterious and I loved that you mixed it up and made it different.”

And Amanda agreed: “Personally I preferred the audition but I appreciate all the effort and prep put into it.”
