Britain's Got Talent Contestant Jack Carroll Wows David Walliams As He Admits, 'I Entered The Competition Because I Was Bored'

Teenager joked he'd like to do a double act with Sir Stephen Hawking

Teenage comedian Jack Carroll has admitted that he entered Britain's Got Talent out of "boredom".

Jack, who suffers from cerebral palsy and uses his condition in his sketches because: "your weaknesses are your strengths", wowed the judges on Saturday night with his stand-up comedy routine, which had David Walliams confessing:

"You are a comedy genius. I'm not even as funny now as you are at 14-years-old. It was incredible".

The 14-year-old funnyman received a standing ovation from the audience and judges after his impressive routine, which began when he told Simon: "I'm a professional gymnast", despite having to use a frame to walk.

"Don't worry, I know what you're all thinking, Harry Potter's had a nasty Quidditch accident!", Jack, who was awarded Teenager of Courage at last year's Pride of Britain awards, joked with the enraptured audience.

And after four "yes" verdicts from Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Simon Cowell, Jack has now confessed that he entered ITV's talent competition because he was bored.

When EntertainmentWise asked the youngster why he decided to go on Britain's Got Talent, he cheekily admitted: "I'd have to say, probably, boredom. I was a bit bored so I thought, may as well".

Jack then joked that one day he'd like to do a comedy double act "with Stephen Hawking".
