Britain's Got Talent 2012: Jonathan Antoine 'wants to lose weight'

Britain's Got Talent - Jonathan and Charlotte

Britain's Got Talent star Jonathan Antoine has said he would like to lose weight, but only to be healthy.

The singer wowed the judges on the show last month with pal Charlotte Jaconelli, getting four yeses and almost certainly a place in the live shows.

Most headlines have focused on the 17-year-old's look, something which Jonathan says he wants to change, but only to be healthy.

"I would like to lose weight to be healthy. It’s not important to me from an image point of view. I’m the way I am and I always will be," Jonathan said this week. "If other people don't like me than that's their choice, but I quite like me."

Jonathan also revealed he hoped his performance on the show would lead to a great social life, with friends who shared his passion for music.

He explained: "I want to meet interesting people who enjoy music and another forms of art. I just find there are so many interesting and really great people in that kind of field and those are the kind of people I want to be socialising with and be around, I think it's a good opportunity to do that"

Meanwhile pal Charlotte admitted that she was more star struck meeting Ant and Dec than Simon Cowell during their audition earlier this year.

Britain's Got Talent 2012 continues this Saturday night on ITV1.
