bgt comedian nabil abdulrashid is voted through to final by judges

Comedian Nabil Abdulrashid was put through to the Britain’s Got Talent final during Saturday night’s show.

The funnyman, 35, wowed the judges with his act that saw him joke about racism, amongst other things, during the programme’s last semi-final, after Diversity’s Black Lives Matter-inspired dance sparked 24,500 Ofcom complaints.

Nabil won Alesha Dixon’s Golden Buzzer during his audition earlier in the year, and it was clear why he deserved the accolade as he yet again left the judges in hysterics with his comedy routine before they hailed him as ‘edgy and brave’.

After his act, which saw him make a joke about how his ‘white liberal left-wing friend’ told him to ‘forget he was black’ so that he wouldn’t be subjected to racism, Alesha heaped praise on him as she opened up the judges critiques.

She began: ‘I really enjoyed it, the reason I picked you as my Golden Buzzer is you’re quite edgy, you’re different, and you’re that guy.

‘It’s okay to feel a bit uncomfortable with comedy, I think that’s what comedy is about and I think you’re very brave to take on the subject of racism, very poignant right now.’

In hysterics: Ashley Banjo, whose group Diversity sparked 24,500 complaints to Ofcom with their BLM-inspired dance earlier this month, called Nabil's act 'legendary'

She went on: ‘I think we all need to learn to laugh a bit more and have fun so well done, it was great.’

Amanda Holden reiterated Alesha’s sentiment, as she went on: ‘Absolutely, comedy should be about pushing boundaries, it should be about taking us right to the edge and tonight you made me really laugh, so congratulations.’

Ashley Banjo, who recently admitted he and his fellow Diversity members were subjected to racist abuse following their performance in the show’s first semi final, called Nabil’s act ‘legendary.’

The professional dancer gushed: ‘Legendary stuff bro, legendary. I did nothing but laugh.

‘A lot of comedians have found this really hard with a virtual audience but I didn’t even think about that for a minute with you. 

‘You should be in the final and for me you should be up to win this competition man, very well done.’

David Walliams went on: ‘It was a brilliant set, Britain’s Got Talent can be bigger and better if we can have really fantastic, edgy comedy on this show.

‘But, the only way we can really judge comedy was “was it funny?” and it was absolutely hilarious, you are one to watch in this competition and Alesha made the right decision.’

Nabil was up against daredevil Wesley Williams and gospel choir Shalom Chorale to get to the final, but went through thanks to the resounding support of Alesha, Ashley, and David.

Head judge Amanda’s vote wasn’t needed, but when asked by co-hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly who she would have picked she admitted that her choice was Wesley, and she joked that Nabil needed ‘to bring a unicycle’ to the final. 

After being put through, Nabil was emotional and claimed he was happy he had made it through because it ‘meant a lot’ as he represented a lot of people.

Most viewers were absolutely delighted by Nabil’s performance, agreeing with the judges that his act was ‘hilarious’ and that he did a great job. 

One viewer gushed: ‘Good on you Nabil for pushing the boundaries, you were fab!’ 

While another said: ‘Now THAT was a comedy set. Nabil nailed it.’

Praising his comedy routine, one fan went on: ‘Absolutely brilliant, I literally didn’t stop laughing… Nabil’s a legend.’  

But not all viewers were pleased by Nabil’s performance as one complained: ‘Think the judges have got this one wrong. He wasn’t funny at all #BritainsGotTalent in fact it was that rubbish I turned off to #StrictlyComeDancing’

While another claimed: ‘I thinka ll the golden buzzers this year have been poor.’

One viewer wrote: ‘Nabil was absolutely brilliant! Funny and relevant, also, I’m pretty sure the racists who swore blind they’d never watch #BritainsGotTalent again are currently dialling OfCom’

While another shared a scene from The Office US and said: ‘Actual footage of Ofcom headquarters preparing for the overhaul of complaints after Nabil’s comedy performance #BritainsGotTalent’

A viewer claimed: ‘Nabil was hilarious, ofcom are gonna have one hell of a night tonight.’ 

Posting a picture of a cat typing rapidly, one person said: ‘All those people who complained about Diversity’s dance routine about to email Ofcom agai (sic).’

It was reported on Thursday that the show has ‘become the most complained about series of 2020’ after 27,006 people contacted Ofcom since it returned to small screens.

Diversity’s Black Lives Matter inspired performance during the show’s first semi-final attracted 24,500 complaints to OfCom, who have since announced they will not investigate any further.

ITV has ‘stood with Diversity’ as they featured adverts in national newspapers in support of the controversial dance. 

ITV are believed to have spent around £260,000 on the newspaper ads with full-page monochrome pieces in The Metro costing £36,461 and £27,700 in The Mirror.

Alesha was one of many who praised ITV for standing by the dance troupe. The singer took to Instagram to share a snap of the advert and gushed over how ‘proud’ she was with them. 

In her caption, she wrote: ‘Well done @ITV for standing with Diversity! Proud of you! This image is in all of the national newspapers today.’

Ashley also shared his gratitude with ITV for standing by Diversity over their Black Lives Matter-inspired performance.

Sharing a snap of the same advert, which shows him kneeling in black-and-white, he wrote: ‘This is what change looks like.

‘@ITV stand with @Diversity and we’ve never been prouder. This is in all the national papers today. Thank you again to everyone that has supported us.’

Meanwhile, Amanda’s racy gown on last week’s show sparked 235 Ofcom complaints and led viewers to question whether she had suffered a wardrobe malfunction.  

Following Saturday’s show, some fans claimed on Twitter that Amanda had suffered a nip slip in the look and she took to Instagram at the time to shut down speculation. 

Amanda had worn a plunging navy gown with a daring thigh-high slit which had a built in underwire on the bust.       

Discussing the recent furore over her outfit on Saturday’s show and the 235 Ofcom complaints it has received, Amanda told MailOnline she has used her ‘sense of humour’ to deal with the backlash.

In her typically tongue-in-cheek humour, the singer joked to MailOnline that she was more insulted that people thought she had ‘huge saucepan nipples’.   

The Heart radio presenter said: ‘I can see what people think, it had a like an underwire, you know when you have an underwire bikini or bra, the end of it it’s like an upside down U isn’t it. The end of it dug in.

‘I was more insulted that people thought I had either huge saucepan nipples or nipples over my cleavage.’

Futuristic flying ‘AirCar’ takes to the skies for the first time

futuristic flying aircar takes to the skies for the first time

A flying sports car that can go from road vehicle to aircraft in just three minutes has flown 1,500ft in the air over Slovakia as part of a test flight, its developers say.

Sensational footage of the AirCar, developed by Slovakian firm KleinVision, shows it driving on a runway, stopping to deploy wings, and then soaring through the air.

This is the fifth prototype of the flying car and developers say it would be great for leisure and self-driving journeys, or as a commercial taxi service.

No price details have been revealed for the futuristic vehicle but it can travel for about 620 miles in the air and could be seen in the air and on the roads next year.

This is the fifth version of the flying car and developers say it would be great for leisure and self-driving journeys, or as a commercial taxi service

According to its developers it completed two 1,500ft test flights at Piestany Airport in Slovakia this week, bringing it a step closer to commercial flight. 

Designed by Professor Stefan Klein, the AirCar safely completed two takeoffs and landings as part of the test run.

Cars can be heavy, but planes must be light and so finding that balance for the AirCar was a major challenge for Klein and his team. 

The two-seat model, tested in Slovakia this week, weights 2,425lb and can carry an additional load of 440lb per flight, the company said.

Powered by a BMW 1.6l engine, the car-plane has an effective power output of 140HP and the estimated travel range of AirCar is 621 miles.

It requires a runway of at least 984ft to get from ground to sky and can reach speeds of up to 124 miles per hours, according to Klein. 

AirCar has wings that unfurl and a single propeller at the read. The wings fold up when the vehicle is on the road and it takes up the space of a normal packing spot. 

‘The wing and tail deployment/retraction mechanism is very impressive, converting the automobile into an airplanem’ said Dr Branko Sarh, former Boeing expert.

‘The cockpit providing space for the driver/pilot and a passenger is very roomy and nicely styled. The overall appearance of the flying car on road and in the air is superb,’ Sarh added.

The developers say it has been designed so that the stability and controllability of the AirCar is accessible to any pilot, with no specialist training required.

‘The key flight parameters confirmed all theoretical concepts and calculations that the development of the AirCar was based on,’ Professor Klein said.

When all of the legally required flight tests are completed they plan to fit the craft with a more powerful engine and hope to have it ready for sale within six months.

The company already has a buyer interested in purchasing one of the AirCars when it passes all future tests and is ready to fly – or drive. 

‘With AirCar you will arrive at your destination without the hassle of getting a ride to airport and passing through commercial security,’ said co-found Anton Zajac.

‘You can drive your AirCar to the golf course, the office, the mall or your hotel and park it in a normal parking space,’ said Zajac added.

George Osborne and ex-wife sell Notting Hill family home for £3.95m

george osborne and ex wife sell notting hill family home for 3 95m

George Osborne has finally sold his plush London townhouse for £3.95million – after knocking £1 million off the asking price.

The former chancellor put his ‘immaculately presented, generous and eclectic’ property in the upmarket neighbourhood of Notting Hill on the market in March for £4.95million.

But six months later Osborne – who critics dubbed the ‘architect of austerity’ after he started a decade of spending cuts – was forced to knock £1 million off his asking price to get buyer, according to luxury estate agent Domus Nova.

Osborne had ironically warned in 2016 that house prices across the UK would tank by between 10 and 18 per cent if Britain left the EU.

Earlier this month, Domus Nova’s website revealed Osborne had exchanged contracts with an unnamed buyer. 

He had shared the property with his wife Frances, but the couple announced they were getting divorced July last year, insisting they will remain ‘good friends’ and ‘jointly devoted’ to their two children.

‘The wide footprint, semi-detached and with side light, offers four distinct family spaces, grand and with their own distinct style and use.

‘The primary, and more formal reception room, opens onto a wonderful terrace that overlooks the garden. The indulgent, and inviting, kitchen/dining and family room opens directly onto the wonderful walled garden.

The property is a 10-minute walk from Ed Sheeran’s Bertie Blossoms restaurant and the Walmer Castle pub owned by David Beckham and Guy Ritchie. 

Osborne is reported to have moved to a £1.6million Georgian bolthole in the posh Somerset town of Bruton that he snapped up in July.

The five-bedroom, late 18th century, Grade II-listed house is set in three acres of grounds in the town dubbed the most fashionable place in Britain by the Times in 2015. 

His prospective property is close to the railway station at Castle Cary, near Bruton, means that he will be able to commute to Paddington in 90 minutes for his main job as editor-in-chief of the Evening Standard.

Bruton was itself described by Country Life as the ‘new Notting Hill’ because of the swathes of celebrities and media figures who have moved there, including Sir Cameron Mackintosh, the theatre producer, Sam Taylor-Johnson, the film director, Mariella Frostrup, the Times Radio presenter, and Alice Temperley, the fashion designer.

The seller of the property, a retired antiques dealer, is building a smaller home for himself on what was the house’s croquet lawn.

He met Mr Osborne during a viewing and spoke to The Times about the chancellor. 

He said: ‘He said he loved the house and believed we could be good neighbours. I am sure he is right. It is a wonderful area which has become very vibrant in recent years.’

The former chancellor has a history of buying and selling expensive properties both during and after his time in office.  

Mr Osborne and his wife, Frances, 51, bought a family home in Notting Hill in 2006 for £1.85 million before the house was put on sale for £4.95 million in March after they announced their divorce. 

The split came months after Mr Osborne bought a £3 million chalet in Verbier, Switzerland.

In 2012, he also made a £400,000 profit on the sale of a farmhouse near his constituency home which had been part funded by his MP expenses. 

He stood down as MP for Tatton at the 2017 general election.

He has since taken on several lucrative jobs including a £1 million-a-year role as a consultant to Blackrock, the fund manager.

can you find your way out of these amazing corn mazes

Every fall (that’s Autumn for Britons), farms across the United States transform their cornfields into interactive mazes – perfect for a family outing.

But unfortunately, many people won’t be able to travel to visit their local mazes this year, as a result of the pandemic.

To help them get their fix of corn mazes, NetCredit worked with CG artists to digitally replicate a selection of some of the toughest and most unique, which they can try to escape from the comfort of their homes.

The team recreated seven in total, from Maine to Michigan, and provided the solutions, too.
