Chelsea Pensioner Colin Thackery won hearts of the nation after his moving performance of Love Changes Everything. He was crowned the champion of Britain’s Got Talent above competitors who were generations younger than him.

Lovable Colin, 89, won the hearts of the nation in the semi-finals with his rendition of Vera Lynn’s wartime tune We’ll Meet Again.  He sang the song for his late wife and was dressed in his Army uniform.

The Chelsea Pensioner was speechless after winning the most votes from the viewers.

A soldier in World War II he not only gains a coveted spot at the Royal Variety Show later this year, he will also receive a cash prize of £250,000.

Mr Thackery said he would “die happy” if he had the chance to sing for the Queen.

“I served my Queen for 25 years and to think I could sing for her would be the end,” he said.

In second place was Magician X and Ben Hart third.  He wowed viewers with his magic tricks
