Britain’s Got Talent star Connie Talbot looks unrecognizable as she takes a ‘chic toilet selfie’

Opera singer

Connie Talbot – the cute, toothless finalist in the first series of Britain’s Got Talent – is now taking “chic train toilet selfies” at the age of 21.

Connie captured the hearts of the nation at just six years old when she finished second to opera singer Paul Potts in the show’s inaugural finale in 2007.

She sang Over the Rainbow from The Wizard of Oz, having qualified for the semi-final after wowing TV audiences and judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan with her version of Michael Jackson’s Ben.

She’s grown a lot since then, as can be seen in her regular glam snaps on Instagram, where she has 300,000 followers.

Along with her toilet selfie, other photos Connie posted show her relaxing at a seaside restaurant during a “studio break” and posing in a denim dress with a lilo.

Birmingham-born Connie released her debut album Over the Rainbow six months after rising to fame on BGT and it sold 250,000 copies, reaching number 35 in the UK charts but number one in Hong Kong, Korea South and Taiwan.

She then released a Christmas album the following year and two more until 2012.

Connie was particularly popular in Asian countries and in 2011 was watched by 400 million people on Chinese state television after she was invited to appear on a show to celebrate the start of the Chinese New Year.

Three years ago, meanwhile, she took part in Britain’s Got Talent – The Championsbut did not make the final, which was won by street dance duo Twist and Pulse – the show’s finalists in 2010.

She is still working as a singer and released her last single “I Would” two years ago in 2020.

The next episode of the current series of Britain’s Got Talent will be screened on ITV this Saturday night, as the contestants attempt to progress from the audition stage by securing four yeses from judges Cowell, Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon.

Two acts have already earned an automatic spot in the semi-finals by receiving a golden buzzer from the judges. Holden passed singer Loren Allred after singing “Never Enough” after revealing on the show that her voice was used for the Greatest Showman movie track.

Comedian Axel Blake, meanwhile, received Cowell’s golden buzzer privilege after making jokes about the pandemic, the Tube and contactless cards.
