Alesha Dixon backs Jonathan Antoine and Charlotte Jaconelli on Britain's Got Talent 2012

Britain's Got Talent - Jonathan and Charlotte

Britain's Got Talent 2012 judge Alesha Dixon has tipped operatic duo Charlotte Jaconelli and Jonathan Antoine to do well in the competition this year.

The pair of singers wowed the judges in the opening audition episode last month, and remain the current favourites to win the competition.

17-year-old Jonathan and 16-year-old Charlotte impressed with their blend of voices on classic Opera number.

Alesha revealed today: "Jonathan and Charlotte made the hairs on my arms stand up.

"He had this humility about him, he didn't realise how great he was. I think he could go really far in the competition".

Alesha also hit out at Simon Cowell for suggesting that Jonathan split from Charlotte and went solo, saying it made her feel "really bad".

The former Strictly Come Dancing star insisted: "I think she complemented him really well."

Britain's Got Talent 2012 continues on Saturday night on ITV1 at 8:30PM.
