Needham Market magician Matt Edwards has come fourth in the final of Britain’s Got Talent.

The 34-year-old just missed out on a place in the top three of the final, which attracted 2.5 million votes from viewers.

The winner was pianist Tokio Myers who has scooped the chance to perform at the Royal Variety Performance.

However, the future looks bright for Matt after the judges praised his performance, which combined comedy and magic.

Simon Cowell said Matt had a ‘brilliant personality and is very likeable’.

He added: “You are someone who needs a break and probably will get a break off the back of this.”

Amanda Holden said Matt’s style was ‘old school variety with a modern silly twist’.

David Walliams added that Matt was a ‘very funny man’.

Matt grew up in Needham Market and was first spotted by the Bury Free Press in 2000 as a talented youngster.
