Britain's Got Talent returned to our screens once again this weekend for its 17th series, with a teacher becoming the latest person to receive a Golden Buzzer pass through to the semi-final.

The judges previously revealed that nine golden buzzers will be awarded this series, breaking their usual one-per-person limit.

Taryn Charles, who is a teacher who uses music to help students with special educational needs, stunned the judges with her take on (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman by Aretha Franklin.

The 39-year-old from Egham in Surrey stunned the audience, which saw her get a standing ovation from everyone in the room.

Bruno Tonioli was particularly impressed and pressed the Golden Buzzer to see golden confetti rain down on Taryn on the stage.

Many took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to heap praise on the act, with one person posting: "She’s an incredible singer! So many talented singers on this year’s show! #BGT".

Another put: "Taryn is very brave to sing this song that was perfected by Aretha Franklin but she has nailed it. Excellent."

Meanwhile, another wrote: "Blown away. Wonderful voice. #BritainsGotTalent".
