Britain's Got Talent 2014: Paddy Jones "heartbroken" over exit

Britain's Got Talent star Paddy has admitted she's "heartbroken" after having to quit the show.

The Salsa dancing and her dance partner Nico will no longer be performing in the semi-final shows after they QUIT BGT due to injury.

The 79-year-old injured her ribs in a fall during training for the live show.

“It’s heartbreaking," she said today from her home in Spain.“I’ll be flying back to London this afternoon but I cannot compete at the weekend.

"I’m feeling much better but there is no way I can dance – I’ve been told I won’t be able to for another month at least."

She added: “I’m absolutely devastated. I was really looking forward to competing.”

It means tomorrow's last semi-final will go on without the pair, perhaps opening up the competition.

The final line up will include singers Andrew Derbyshire, Bailey McConnell and group Jack Pack.

Also performing in the fifth semi-final are impressionist of sorts Jenson Zhu and dance acts Kieran Lai and Kings and Queens.

And adding a touch of variety are La Voix and her London Gay Big Band and Meat Loaf tribute act Peat Loaf and Elaine.

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.
