BGT star Calum Scott previously auditioned for The X Factor back in 2012, it has been revealed.

But he was turned away from the show back when Gary Barlow and Nicole Scherzinger were on the panel.

It was quite the different reaction this evening when Calum went before the judges on Britain's Got Talent.

Not only did he get four yeses, Simon Cowell hit his golden buzzer to send Calum straight through to the live semi-finals later this year.

"It was amazing, I really mean that, well done," Simon said. "I've never, ever in all the years I've done this show heard a guy with the talent you've got. The version was sensational, you're more than a singer, you're an artist and that's why you got that [the golden buzzer]."

Following Calum's performance of Robyn's Dancing On My Own, Alesha Dixon told him: "You completely sucked us all in, it was so special. Fantastic choice, Simon."

But while Calum celebrated his success it came just moments after his sister had auditioned for the panel and was turned away.

Jade Scott got four nos from the judges after singing twice, with Simon telling her: "There were parts where I thought you were pretty good but there were parts when you weren't that good. You were out of tune in parts. I thought it was okay."
