Britain's Got Talent's Stormtroopers unmasked! Who are they really?!


Britain's Got Talent's dancing Stormtroopers Boogie Storm have been unmasked - so just who are they really?!

On Saturday night we saw the mystery group perform a golden buzzer winning routine for the judges.

They danced to hits including Sax and Single Ladies to get Simon Cowell sending them straight through to the live shows.

Now it's been reveled that the group are led by a fireman and drive thru movie theatre owner from Liverpool.


38-year-old Lee Seddon had originally purchased the suits last year to promote the latest Star Wars film, The Sun newspaper reports.

In a chat with the Liverpool Echo in 2015, Lee said of the Stormtrooper getup: "They do come in hundreds of pieces so I have to construct them - it’s like making flat-pack furniture, you’ve got to build them, glue them, paint them, everything.

"It’s like having a giant Airfix kit!”

And he explained how he called on celebrity Jennifer Ellison and her husband Robbie to help recruit dancers for the Boogie Storm act, who also perform at parties and other events.

“I got in touch with them, told Robbie the idea and he loved it so he’s come into partnership with me and Jelli Dance Studios will provide the dancers and choreography for our events," he said.

With a golden buzzer from Simon, Boogie Storm are straight through to the live semi-finals later this month.

They're joined by Amanda's golden buzzer, 12-year-old singer Beau Dermott, Ant and Dec's choice, 14-year-old singer Jasmine Elcock, Alesha Dixon's act, 100 Voices of Gospel choir and finally David's golden buzzer performers, singing duo Ian and Anne Marshall.

But while all the golden buzzers are now gone, the auditions continue: Britain's Got Talent is back this coming Saturday night on ITV.
