It's been revealed that two of this year's Britain's Got Talent favourites are related.

Singer Beau Dermott and dancer Jack Higgins are in fact cousins, with their parents twin sisters.

It's sure one talented family!

Jack left the judges in tears on Saturday nigh with an emotional dance performance, opening up to the panel about being bullied over his passion.

Meanwhile Beau, currently the favourite to win, got Amanda Holden's golden buzzer in the first show after singing Defying Gravity.

Jack's mum Debbie told The Sun newspaper: "He and Beau used to do little shows for me and Karen all the time.

“To do what they did on that stage is amazing. Karen and I speak every day and compare notes. We’re so close and live ten minutes from each other. We see each other all the time as a family.”

Jack added: “It would be amazing to both get to the final. We are completely different acts, so it wouldn’t feel like we were competing against each other.

“We’re best friends. We bake cakes and make videos of us singing and dancing. We would love to be in a musical together.”

While Beau is already in the live semi-finals thanks to Amanda's golden buzzer, Jack has a tense wait to find out if he'll make it through at the deliberation day later in the series.

Britain's Got Talent continues Saturday night on ITV.
