Britain’s Got Talent: OAP group The Zimmers fight for their right to party

If you thought you’d seen it all on Britain’s Got Talent, OAP singing group The Zimmers are here to prove you wrong…

The 15-strong group, made up of members aged between 66 and 88 from across the UK, stormed the stage for their unique performance on tonight latest audition show.

Dressed in cosy coats and anoraks, the group wandered on stage and spent ages assembling themselves in the right order, before the oldest member of the group Grace kicked off the performance with a sedate rendition of What The World Needs Now.

The judges weren't quite sure what they were in for - but were pleasantly surprised when the OAPs ripped off their coats to reveal hoodies and a touch of bling, before shoving caps on their heads. They then kicked off a hilarious version of Fight For Your Right (To Party), showing the younger generations exactly how to catch the attention of the BGT judges.

Proving they’re definitely still young at heart, The Zimmers were given the thumbs-up by all four judges.

Alesha told them: “You are so inspiring that was brilliant," and Carmen Electra, who was standing in for regular judge Amanda Holden added: “I loved you guys, you were awesome.”

David Walliams was also a fan, telling the group: "You rock, and you roll."

And 88-year-old Grace Cooke even managed to show it’s not just pretty young girls who can cause notoriously hard to please judge Simon Cowell’s head to swivel.

After watching the performance, he singled Grace out, telling her: “You on the right, you're a little tiger aren't you?”

All four judges gave the group a resounding "yes", securing a spot in the next round for The Zimmers.
