Jamie Leahey is a 13-year-old self-taught ventriloquist.

He auditioned for Series 15 of Britain's Got Talent, alongside his ventriloquism dummy named Chuck.

He started practising ventriloquism two years ago during the first lockdown after his grandmother bought him a monkey puppet.

Leahey's dream is to have his name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

How did Jamie Leahey reach the Britain's Got Talent final?

Jamie was in the final three following a public vote on May 30, 2022.

However, after opera singer Maxwell Thorpe was crowned the semi-final winner, it was a choice between him and magician Jun-woo.

Both acts managed to receive two judge's votes each which means that it went back to the original public vote – and Jamie came out on top.

Speaking about his performance, judge Amanda Holden said Jamie would fit the bill at the Royal Variety Show: “You brightened up the whole show – you are a very talented, young man.

“Ventriloquism is a very difficult genre. You have a very slick act – a very professional act – I completely believe in you and Chuck.

“And honestly this is the kind of thing I’d like to see on the Royal Variety Show.”

Who else is in the Britain's Got Talent final?

Jamie is joined by Sheffield busker Maxwell Thorpe in the BGT finals.

He won the hearts of the nation during the BGT auditions, and he didn’t disappoint on Monday’s (May 30) semi-finals.
