Collabro star wary of rappers and illusionist in Britain's Got Talent final

Collabro's Matthew Pagan believes that a Canadian illusionist and a teenage rap duo will provide the group’s biggest competition come Saturday’s Britain’s Got Talent final.

The hotly-tipped operatic boy band will come up against nine other acts in the talent show’s final with bookies backing the five-piece as second favourites.

Matthew, 20, from Carlisle, told the News & Star that the band thought their biggest competition will be with illusionist Darcy Oake and teens Bars and Melody.

“For us I think our main competition is going to be Darcy Oake because we have seen what he can do first hand. He’s an amazing performer and his illusions are so good,” he said.

“For a magician it is usually quite hard but the way he does it is something else. I watched his semi-final performance from the side of the stage and you can’t believe what’s going on.

“Bars and Melody will also be a threat as they have just captured the hearts of the nation with their cuteness.”

Outside bet Darcy is likely to prove tough competition for Matt and his bandmates due to his stunning tricks and his legion of female fans while bookmakers are tipping Bars and Melody to be this year’s winners.

Matthew, a former shop worker from St Ann’s, said he and the rest of the group are looking forward to the final.

“It is a big song that we are doing rehearsals non stop every day for. We are more than ready now we have just got to go out there and prove the point that we can do it.

“The act is ours so the judges have left it to us to prepare. We have chosen what we are doing, right down to the staging and how it’s presented”

He also said that the group cannot wait for Saturday’s final saying it will be the biggest night of their lives.

“Whatever happens it will be a hell of an experience. We have met some great people and to get the comments we have from the judges and the support, for me from Cumbria, has been great.”
