They may have told Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Amanda Holden that they were sandwich makers ahead of impressing the judges with their audition on Britain's Got Talent last week, but it appears classical brothers Richard and Adam Johnson are more experienced in the music industry.
As Richard and Adam made it through by performing 'The Impossible Dream', the Mail Online have alleged that the boys failed to reveal that they already have an album and have sung on cruise ships.
According to the site, Richard and Adam have previously performed at theatres in East Yorkshire and in Liverpool as well as a stint on P&O cruises.

Defending her sons and insisting that Richard and Adam are still involved in the family's sandwich shop business, Mrs Johnson said:
"They just want to sing and that’s what they’ve been concentrating on more and more. But they’re not yet able to earn enough money from singing to quit the day job so they’re still involved [in the family business] … just.
"They last worked here two or three weeks ago for a couple of days."
Approaching the subject, a spokesperson for Britain's Got Talent told the Mail Online: "Richard and Adam both work in the family’s sandwich shops in Wales. Over the past few months they’ve worked part time as they have been pursuing their dream of making a living from singing with occasional work on cruise ships and other small gigs."
The news about Richard and Adam's past comes after Alice Fredenham was accused of faking her shyness by fans after giving a more confident audition on The Voice. Defending the talented singer, BGT boss and judge Simon Cowell tweeted recently:
"Alice fredenham on the voice tonight. Confident and hopeful. Nobody turned round. (sic) Alice on bgt. She simply lost her confidence after that reaction and she did sound better on bgt"
He added: "But to call her a fake is unfair. I was there. She was terrified. And now I understand why."
