Britain's Got Talent's Issy Simpson is set to take the world by storm after winning last night's semi-final.

The 8-year-old topped the public vote in yesterday's latest live show, winning herself a spot in Saturday night's final.


Now she's been invited to join Ellen Degeneres on TV in America.

Issy told The Sun newspaper: “I want to do more magic on TV. The Ellen Degeneres Show has invited me over to America to be on that. How amazing is that?

“I would like to go to America and do magic there. My dream is to be a magician full time.”

The youngster is also hoping to get other kids into magic, and has her eyes set on teaching Simon Cowell's son Eric a trick or two.

She said: “I really want to help get more children into magic. I would love to show Eric some magic if he would let me teach him.”

Issy is currently one of four acts in the final of Britain's Got Talent this year alongside fellow magician Matt Edwards, mindreaders DNA and singer Kyle Tomlinson.

ITV today announced that the final of this year's series was being moved to Saturday night to avoid clashing with a benefit concert for the victims of the Manchester terror attacks now due to air on Sunday.


In a statement, ITV said: "Ariana Grande's 'One Love Manchester' benefit concert is bringing artists and the public together, and will raise funds for the Red Cross's Manchester Emergency Fund.

"ITV and Britain's Got Talent have no desire to distract from this important cause, so we have taken the decision to move the Britain's Got Talent Final from Sunday night."
