Voice of an angel: 14-year-old Olivia wowed the Britain's Got Talent judges with her performance at the Manchester auditions of the talent show

A 14-year-old girl singer who 'daydreams' of being a star is being hailed as one of the favourites to win Britain's Got Talent.

Olivia, who appeared at one of the Manchester auditions, is regarded as being among the best singers on this year's show after performing Sarah McLachlan's In The Arms Of An Angel.

She will appear on tomorrow night's show after wowing judges with her voice as she took on the difficult song

On the programme she says: 'I walk downstairs singing, maybe sometimes daydream whilst in maths class. I wonder if in 5 years time I could be an actual star singing in front of millions of people.'

Also on Saturday's show are a stripping forklift truck driver with a nose problem and a young boyband.

Thrilled: Olivia is happy to hear high praise from judges Piers Morgan, Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden

Jeff, who has a bandage around his nose, tells Simon Cowell and the other judges he wants to leave his forklift truck driver day job to perform. He tells them: 'I'm Jeff, I'm 41-years-old, I'm here to sing and if this works out for me I won't be working in a warehouse again!'

Jeff explains to Piers Morgan about the bandage: 'I had an operation on it last week to sort it out because I was snoring a lot at home.'

His act sees him stripping and using a skipping rope to Nelly the Elephant music.

Best friends: Ruth and Chantelle, aka Different Dreams perform their version of Barbara Dickson and Elaine Paige's I Know Him So Well

Teen boyband Connected tell the panel they are 'called Connected because we are all like family, we're brothers, twins and friends.'

The group is made up of 13-year-old twins Conor and Miles, Matt, 12, Harry, 13, and Max, 15.

After singing Backstreet Boys hit song, I Want It That Way, Amanda tells them their performance gave her goosebumps.

Husband and wife Claire and Clive, also known as Flute Magic, combine flute playing and performing magic.

Clive says: 'I think Claire playing the flute and me doing the magic is that little bit of extra something that will make the judges sit up and say, 'yes this is what we need"'

Best pals Ruth and Chantelle, whose act is called Different Dreams also appear.

The pair, who first met at a bus stop, rehears at Chantelle's house. She tells the judges her mum is deaf so she doesn't get bothered by the noise. They perform their version of Barbara Dickson and Elaine Paige's I Know Him So Well.
