One of Sutton's councillors has urged the people to get behind eccentric Britain's Got Talent contestant Lettice Rowbotham - as she is his god daughter.

Councillor Peter Geiringer has been friends with Miss Rowbotham's parents for many years and was named as one of the 24-year-old's god parents.

Now Miss Rowbotham has wowed Britain's Got Talent viewers and judges with her electric violin skills.

She appeared on the show last on April 19 and impressed the judges who put her straight through to the next round of the TV talent show.

Judge David Walliams dubbed her the poshest person ever to have appeared on the show and suggested she was the poshest person ever to have visited Birmingham, where the episode had been filmed.

Coun Geiringer said: "She was unbelievable, the judges raved about her - they were even giving her applause. It was amazing."

Sutton Guardian:

Miss Rowbotham, who is from Mickleham in Surrey, played violin at Russian president Vladimir Putin's daughter's secret wedding and played with pop star Olly Murs on his recent tour.

She was also approached to feature in hit TV show Made In Chelsea but turned down to opportunity to concentrate on her music.
