Audrey Leybourne

Audrey Leybourne, a Britain’s Got Talent contestant and veteran entertainer, has died at the age of 95.

The singer and actress, who appeared in shows such as Stella and Doctors, is thought to have died on Thursday.

Her cause of death is unknown at this time.

The veteran performer starred in series 12 of BGT

Audrey wowed audiences when she auditioned for ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent during series 12 at the age of 90.

The judges praised the pensioner’s rendition of the classic song “I Wanna Be Loved By You.”

Her cheeky personality, however, made viewers at home fall in love with her.

When show judge Amanda Holden asked Audrey if she was married, she replied, “No, I was in love many, many times… “Gentlemen, 22.”

The singer’s comments earned her the moniker “minx.”

Her last role was a two episode stint of Carters Get Rich in 2017, before she starred in a York Pantomime.

She made her debut pantomime role – at the age of 90 – as Potty T Potts in Beauty and the Beast.
