Deep Space Deviants perform on Britain's Got Talent

The singing Time Lord nemesis, Davros, played by Paul Dolman, impressed judges in the early rounds and is one of 40 acts through to the live semi-final stage.

The origins of the act lie in the Deep Space Deviants, a band which rehearses at The Old Courts in Wigan and Paul, 47, is the owner of Static Records on Hallgate.

Singing their version of Loveshack and then performing Riverdance clearly made an impact on the rest of the judging panel despite Simon Cowell appearing unimpressed.
