Performing a bizarre medley of Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5, Bamboleo by the Gipsy Kings and Don’t You Want Me by the Human League, Paul was cut short as all of the judging panel pressed their red crosses.

Simon Cowell said: “That was beyond bad. It was the singing, or not singing. The choice of songs, the absolute awfulness. At least I said no first time round (in the auditions), whereas these three (pointing to the fact that Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams had voted to get the Deep Space Deviants into the semi-finals).”

Paul/Davros responded: “Yeah, it’s your fault.”

David added: “We’ve had some rubbish on this show over the years and that beats of all of them. It was fun for a few seconds.”
