He wowed the nation with his impressions on Saturday night, but now funny man Les Gibson has got serious - saying he wants to win the show to help his sick dad. The 41-year-old told The Sun today how his 83-year-old father, Gordon Gibson, is suffering badly from Alzheimer's Disease.

"My dad's at a pretty bad stage of it. It's very upsetting," he told the newspaper. "It can be hard financially but you try not to live beyond your means. You have to do what your parents taught you."

The comic impressed the judging panel at the Manchester auditions last weekend with his routine which saw impressions of Apprentice star Lord Sugar, TV hard man Ross Kemp and Corrie's Kevin Webster.

Talking about his act, Les said: "I often do some Disney characters and stuff for my daughter. She loves Justin Bieber too and we change the lyrics to some of his songs and sing them together. It's quite scary before you go on. But adrenaline is a good thing on stage."

He added: "My kids are my judges, they tell me what's funny."
