A quartet of synchronised swimmers brought out Simon’s patriotic side as they took to the water.
Aquabatique, made up of former international synchronised swimmers for Great Britain – Emily, Zoe, Jazmine and Elizabeth – performed in their outdoor “human aquarium” in the pouring rain for the Britain’s Got Talent judges.
The whole audience also braved the weather to watch the astounding spectacle.
An impressed Simon said: “Tell you what I liked about the act is that I got kind of patriotic.”
The four 20-somethings enjoyed showing swimming enthusiast David how it’s done.
Simon said: “Girls, that was absolutely great well done. The only person who really is an expert on this kind of thing is David.”
David: “Well I’m not an expert, I like swimming but I’ve never done synchronised swimming and I know it’s one of the hardest things to do, because you need such strength. You also need real grace and beauty and you girls have both. I was completely blown away.
“It made me feel proud.”
Simon concluded: “Yeah, and excited and you look amazing! It’s like having a see through bath.”
The girls were a splashing success, making it through to the next round.
