Britain's Got Talent 2012 - Ashley

16-year-old Xylophone player Ashley Elliott is a surprise hit with the Britain's Got Talent audience on tonight’s show.

The teenager is seen auditioning for the judges as try outs move back to Blackpool for the first time in almost five years.

"I’ve been playing the xylophone for two years. I started off in my percussion teacher’s house and I eventually ended up buying that one, and that’s the one I’m playing today," Ashley explains.

"I live at home with my Mom and Dad on a farm. Dad is a farmer and the whole family have been farmers for hundreds of years, but I want to break away and do music as a career. "

Ashley is given two minutes to make the most of his skills, but will the judges appreciate his unique talent for the Xylophone?

Britain's Got Talent 2012 airs tonight on ITV1 at 8PM.
