Britain's Got Talent 2014: Bars and Melody forgive the bullies

Bars and  Melody

Bullies who taunted BGT 2014 stars Bars and Melody have said sorry.

Charlie, 15 from Bristol and Leondre, 13 from Wales make up the musicial duo – also known as BAM – who wowed the BGT judges earlier this month with their own version of the Twista and Faith Evans track, which included an original rap by Leondre about experiences of bullying.

He's now revealed how the bullies have got in contact to say sorry... and Leo forgives them.

“I have been bullied by a lot of people since I was young — I have been to 12 or 13 schools since I was seven," he revealed. “There was lots of physical bullying and then when Facebook came along, there was cyberbullying too.

“It was a horrible time but what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. The message of the song is to keep your head up.”

Speaking to The Sun on Sunday newspaper, Leondre said he did forgive the bullies who had got in contact to apologise.

He explained: “The people who bullied me at my old school have private messaged me to say: ‘Leondre, I’m proud of you and I’m sorry’. I forgive them because you don’t know what they are going through at home.”

BAM got Simon Cowell's golden buzzer in the auditions meaning they're guaranteed a spot in the live shows, which begin on Monday night.

But the busy boys have spent this week in LA, appearing on The Ellen Show where they performed their audition song to a US audience.
