Former Chichester Cathedral Chorister Isaac Waddington achieved fifth place in Sunday night's final of 'Britain's Got Talent'.  The fifteen year-old who performed his version of Billy Joel's She's Always a Woman was given a glowing review by the judges on the ITV show.  Judge David Walliams described his performance as "hauntingly beautiful"  and the remaining three judges agreed that it "was an incredible performance" and the teenager was a "young star".

Isaac was formerly Head Chorister at Chichester Cathedral and was educated at The Prebendal School which is situated next to the Cathedral (all the Cathedral Choristers are educated at the Prebendal).  Isaac also won BBC Young Chorister of the Year in 2012, the year he left the school.  To find out more about the Chichester Cathedral Choristers please click here (the next open afternoon is on the 9th June).

Among Isaac's biggest fans is his 94 year old great-grandmother Brenda Lepora, who watched him in the final at her care home in Fareham.
