Britain's Got Talent 2018: 'Silent comic' Lost Voice Guy wows the judges

A silent comic going by the name Lost Voice Guy wowed the Britain's Got Talent judges this week.

Lee Ridley may not be able to speak but he didn't let something like that get in the way of entertaining the BGT audience.

The comic told the judges - via a computer - he had been speechless for 37 years after losing his voice.

Lee has cerebral palsy which is why he is unable to speak.

But Lee, who is better known as Lost Voice Guy, went on to impress the panel with his jokes nevertheless.

His quips left the judges and audience at the audition in stitches.

And with four yeses, Lost Voice Guy sailed through to the next round and a step closer to the live shows.

Speaking about the audition, David Walliams said: "There was one man who came on who, because of his disability, is unable to speak, which you might think would be tough for a stand- up comic.

"But he has a pre-programmed computer, which provides the words. He had a really witty routine which was really funny.

"I must admit, it was something I have never seen before. He was really funny, so surprising and original. I love that."

As always, acts need three or more yeses to make it through to the next round and potentially on to the live shows.

Making up the judging panel this year once more are Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden.

Meanwhile, hosts Ant and Dec will be present for the auditions, watching on from the sidelines with a comforting hug whatever the result.

Other acts this weekend included comedy impressionist Andrew Lancaster, dance group RISE and Singing Priest Father Ray Kelly
