Doncaster News and Features: Famous Doncastrian: Two Grand
The 2009 talent tv show Britain's Got Talent final included 76 year old John Neil and his granddaughter Sallie Lax (12 years old), also called Two Grand.
The family-friendly singing duo hail from Rossington, and performing Somewhere Out There - An American Tale in last night's semi-final, the pair were praised by hard-to-please Simon Cowell for their 'complete and utter sincerity' - and were tipped to reach the final before being put though by Cowell and fellow judge Amanda Holden.
John said: "It's the most wonderful thing in the world that's ever happened to me. Since my wife died I've been praying."
