Britain's Got Talent 2014 wild card: Jon Clegg favourite to join final

Impressionist Jon Clegg has been tipped to become this year's Britain's Got Talent 2014 wild card.

Last year saw the judges vote to bring back ventriloquist Steve Hewett for the live final, with the group having missed out in the semis.

It was confirmed earlier in the week that this series will see a similar twist, with one act from the five semi-finals being given a second shot in the final.

Odds on favourite to get the spot is currently impressionist Jon Clegg, who missed out in Monday night's first live show. Singer Jodi Bird and dance troupe Cartel are also being backed.

It's not clear if the wild card spot will be open to all acts or just those who finished in third place, with the Bold Dogs BMX Team and Light Balance also getting support despite not making the Top Three in their respective semi-finals.

David Walliams said he didn't feel it would be "fair" if the BGT wild card slot didn't go to someone who had made the Top Three.

"I don't think it'd be fair to see someone go through who didn't come third," he said.

So far singing duo Bars and Melody, violinist Lettice Rowbotham, opera singer Lucy Kay, dancer Yanis Marshall, singer James Smith, musical theatre Collabro, dance troupe The Addict Initiative and magician Darcy Oake have all made it through to the live final next weekend.

And we've still got the one semi-final to go, with the final nine acts performing tomorrow night on ITV.
