BRITAIN’S Got Talent finalists 2Grand have paid a visit to London this week to watch a special edition of Who Wants to be a Millionaire? filmed.

John Neill and granddaughter Sallie Lax, 16, were invited down to the recording of the quiz, hosted by Chris Tarrant, with a host of other former Britain’s Got Talent finalists from the 2009 series.

The pair were given front row seats alongside singer Shaheen Jafargholi, dance troupes Flawless and Stavros Flatley, with first series winner Paul Potts also making an appearance.

Mr Neill, of Rossington, said: “We had such a lovely time and it was nice to catch up with everyone.

“Most people were still doing what they did on the show and there were some good stories.

“Seeing Shaheen again was nice as he is the same age as my granddaughter so was a boy when we were on the show, but he has grown up a lot.”

The special edition of the programme will be screened ahead of one of the live heats next week.
