Herbie Armstrong

Despite claiming during his Britain's Got Talent audition on Saturday night he'd never been a front man, 66-year-old Herbie Armstrong last night was revealed to have had two hits - and his own solo album. According to The Sun the singer has even performed on Top Of The Pops!

Herbie told judges Louis Walsh, Amanda Holden and Michael McIntyre on Saturday night that he had "never broken through as the front man," after spending years in a backing band. However reports suggest that Herbie was part of other bands such as "Fox", which scored hits in the seventies.

The news has, apparently, sparked fury amongst fans of Britain's Got Talent who say Herbie should be given the boot!

"This show should be for beginners setting out on their careers, not for successful musicians who've had their chance," a source said.

To make things worse, Herbie has also made and released his own solo album, still currently available to buy from his own official website.

Herbie made it through to the next round of auditions at the weekend, with Amanda telling him: "I think you've got a good heart. I can feel that this is kind of your last shot. I think you can do better. But I think you did a great job."
