The TV and music mogul is said to be interested in adding the operatic boyband to his Syco roster, and is already drawing up a record deal for the five-piece.

A source told The Sun: "They're already favourites to win, they've got talent and Simon reckons he can make them massive."

Collabro - consisting of 20-year-old kitchen salesman Matthew, NHS worker Jamie, 23, waiter Tom, 24, sales assistant Michael, 23, and 20-year-old labourer Richard - got four "yeses" from the judges after their rendition of Stars from musical Les Miserables.

Amanda Holden said: "You just reduced me to tears. I could just burst with pride for you because that was brilliant," while David Walliams called their performance "flawless".

Simon, who created operatic pop group Il Divo and a younger version Angelis, told the group: "It was an absolutely brilliant audition... Britain does have talent."
