Alesha Dixon and her Britain's Got Talent co-stars have offered their sympathy and support to a tearful contestant who forgot his lines in the show's grand final.

The ITV series wraps up on Sunday night when its winner will be named after a final round of competition, but the nerves of the live show got the better of musical duo Flintz and T4ylor.

Rapper Flintz forgot his lines a number of times during their performance, looking increasingly frustrated with himself before managing to pull the performance back together towards its end.

He was in tears by the end of their moment on stage for Sunday's final, but Dixon and the other judges - Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and David Walliams - were quick to offer him words of advice as seasoned professionals.

Dixon said: "Artist to artist, it doesn't matter what anyone tells you tonight, you're going to feel bad, you're going to come off stage and beat yourself up.

"But what you've done on this show far outweighs anything that happened tonight."

Holden added: "You're so passionate about what you do that the emotions got in there, that's all it was."

Even tough judge Cowell was supportive, telling a crying Flintz: "I actually thought this was your best performance so far.

"Who gives a s*** if you forgot lyrics, we saw how much this means to you.

"It happens all the time, it happens to me every night when I come off stage, I'm told I forgot this, I forgot that, who cares."

And Walliams reassured him: "Any time anyone makes a mistake, it just makes people love you even more."

The rapper only met pianist T4ylor in person at their first audition, having met and rehearsed online, but the pair have become close friends.

Hosts Ant and Dec also consoled them, with Ant saying: "It doesn't get any better than working with your best friend, believe me."

The winner of the show will take home £250,000 and get a slot on stage at the Royal Variety Performance.
