Alan Sugar thinks Ronan Parke could win Britain’s Got Talent

Norfolk's Ronan Parke's voice has gripped the nation and now he has support from one of the UK's most famous entrepreneurs.

The young singer has the backing of Lord Sugar who tweeted Amanda Holden today saying: 'What's the name of the little Justin Bieber look alike? I think he has potential of being the winner.'

The 12-year-old from Porlingland is through to the final 40 and will battle it out in the first of the live semi finals tonight to win �100,000 and a slot at the Royal Variety Performance.

Having already faced judges Michael McIntyre, Amanda Holden and David Hasselhoff, the semi finalists will now perform in front of Simon Cowell.

See Ronan on Britain's Got Talent on ITV1 tonight from 7.30pm.
