Stavros Flatley – Greek Cypriot Demetrios Demetriou, 40, and his son Lagi, 12, – dreamt up their routines to entertain guests at their family restaurant.
Last night at Britain’s got talent they were overflowing with joy as they got the overall top spot thanks to the public vote. This puts the father and son duo, who performed a hilarious Zorba the Greek dance routine, one step closer to the Royal Variety Show. Their backing dancers were family pals who also used to work at the eatery. When dad Demitri told son Lagi, “No matter what happens, thanks for asking me to dance with you. I’ve had the time of my life, I swear,” they almost had the crowd overcome with emotion as well!
Stavros Flatley will join other finalists on Saturday including dance troupes Flawless and Diversity and rugby-playing singer Shaun Smith, 17. Two more acts will be selected on Thursday.
