Colin was a member of the Royal Artillery for 25 years and went to war two weeks after he married Joan in Korea.

After discovering that he was on to the final, the former member of the armed forces, who had lost part of his hearing after being attacked, shared: & # 39; I have a vague idea of ​​what is happening! & # 39;

The finalist later told hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly: & # 39; It is starting to sink. My four grandchildren, my son and my daughter are in the audience & # 39 ;.

Kojo, who vowed to establish himself as a solo artist after working with superstars such as Kevin Hart, jumped in delight when judges Simon, Amanda and Alesha sent him to the final.
