The dancing granny who learnt to Salsa after the death of her husband is out of Britain's Got Talent.

There are reports Paddy Jones has injured herself while rehearsing for the show's semi-finals.

The 79 year old who was favourite to win the competition is thought to have cracked a rib while preparing with partner Nico.

A statement from Britain's Got Talent said: "After seeking medical advice, Paddy will not be able to perform in the semi-final."

"Unfortunately because of this Paddy and Nico have had to withdraw from the competition."

Judge Amanda Holden, who gave Paddy the golden buzzer which put her straight through to the semi-finals is said to be "devastated."
