Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds has sent a good luck message to a Cheshire and North Wales children's choir as they get set to perform in the live semi-final of Britain's Got Talent. Chester-based AmaSing - consisting of members from across the county and over the border - will appear on tonight's episode of the hit ITV show.

The children wowed both the crowd and judges - Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Bruno Tonioli - with their "very special" performance during the auditions which were screened earlier this month. They sang their own song, 'Be who you want to be', and it has landed them a spot in the live semi-final.

The choir is now hoping to reach the live final on Sunday, June 2. Posting on Facebook, AmaSing said: "We are delighted to announce our AmaSing children’s choir made up of 133 young people from all walks of life are through to Britain's Got Talent live semi finals Friday 31st ITV 8pm.

"They will be singing their hearts out for your vote performing our unique songs which have been written by children in our workshops. Please tune in and support our non for profit arts organisation and charity who support thousands of young people’s mental health through music and creative arts."

Actor Ryan Reynolds, co-owner of Wrexham AFC, has sent the choir a special message ahead of tonight's show. He said: "This is a message to my friends at AmaSing and I just want to wish you all the luck in the world on behalf of me, everyone in Wrexham, everyone in Cheshire."

Reynolds then joked: "I don't know exactly what a gang is doing on Britain's Got Talent but who am I to say? You know talent can be found in all sorts of places... even in a street gang like you guys."

AmaSing posted a response, saying: "Thank you sooooo much for the message & support @VancityReynolds."

Meanwhile, Crewe teenager Oliver Edwards has just missed out on the live final. The 16-year-old, along with his dance troupe Phoenix Boys, just missed out to choir Northants Sings Out after the judges sent the final decision to the public votes.
