Rachael Wooding on Britain's Got Talent 2016 stuns the judges

Rachael Wooding wowed the Britain's Got Talent 2016 judges in tonight's auditions.

37 year old Rachael is a former West End performer with a long list of credits including Cats, Fame, Footloose, Jersey Boys and We Will Rock You.

However she hasn't performed in two years and is now full-time mother to a baby girl, living in Hertfordshire with her husband.

"I used to be a singer and performer in musicals," said Rachael on the show tonight. "In 2014 I did my last show, went on my honeymoon, got pregnant on my honeymoon and now the rest is history.

"I've come to Britain's Got Talent because I want to sing again, I want to perform as me. This is asking them to like you not as an actress but you as a person."

The new mum admitted she was nervous - and exhausted - before belting out With You from the musical Ghost.

Alesha Dixon described Rachael as a "lovely person" while Amanda Holden was moved by the emotional performance.

Simon Cowell declared: "This was the most beautiful version of that song I've ever heard."

With four yeses, Rachael shot through to the next round.

Another singing act on BGT tonight was a family affair.

The Garnett Family are mum Helen (46), who works as a choir teacher, and daughters Rachel (20) and twins Anna and Abigail (17), who are all students.

They live in North Lincolnshire. The girls have performed together as a trio but BGT was the first time they have performed with their mum on stage.

The family four piece said: "We love singing as a team so we were like, 'let's give it a go and see what happens'"

After singing Jess Glynne's Take Me Home, they also got four yeses through to the next round.

Britain's Got Talent 2016 auditions air tonight on ITV, Saturday May 7, from 8PM.
