Britain's Got Talent 2018: Bring It North want to be as big as One Direction

Made Up North.

Boy band Bring It North (aka Made Up North) have big ambitions as they appear on Britain's Got Talent 2018.

Bring It North are a group of five schoolchildren aged 10-11 from the North of England.

In the auditions show, they told the judges: "We want to be as big as One Direction."

The boys battled their nerves to perform for the panel.

The group sang ‘Electricity’ by Elton John - and got four yeses.

Alesha Dixon said: "You're so cute and I hope you inspire lots of young boys to do something they're passionate about."

Amanda Holden added: "It was brilliant and you're 10. I couldn't imagine my own daughter doing that, it was so brave."

Simon Cowell joked: "I just know Eric and his four mates are going to be the same thing in six years time."

With four yeses, Bring It North were put through to the next round and also on to the live shows.

Other young hopefuls on the show with Bring It North included 6-year-old Oscar Donnelly, a schoolboy from Scotland who performs an Irish dancing routine.

There was also Tap Attack, a group of tap dancers aged 15-18 coming from across the UK.

More acts hoping for yeses were cake eating opera singer Sarah Llewellyn, Ben Langley and his misheard lyrics and comedy musician Micky P Kerr.

At the end of the series, just one act will walk away with £250,000 and a spot on the Royal Variety Performance.

Plus, a 'special surprise' as teased by Simon Cowell.

Britain’s Got Talent continues Saturday nights on ITV.

Plus, More Talent airs straight after the main show on ITV2.
