An eight-year-old boy who survived a ten-hour surgery to have a brain tumour removed has won the Golden Buzzer on this year's Britain's Got Talent.

Ravi Adelekan and a choir launched in his name, called Ravi's Dream Team, reduced judges Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden to tears with their rendition of A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman.

Ravi, from Brighton, was given the Golden Buzzer by Dixon who called him a "remarkable young man".

Appearing on Sunday night's episode, Ravi said: “I’ve watched Britain's Got Talent all my life and always wanted to audition for it.

“Two years ago I was diagnosed with a brain tumour and I’m here to show no matter what life throws you can still achieve your dreams.”

Ravi Adelekan was diagnosed with a benign tumour in his brain stem in 2021.

Following ten hours of surgery, he started his journey to learn to walk and feed himself again.

The surgeons were not able to remove the whole tumour, and Ravi lives with its effects every day.

Ravi's choir was made up of friends, family, teachers from school, medical professionals and other children from the brain tumour community.

The group, aged from five to 78, hugged in celebration after being given the Golden Buzzer which means they advance directly to the Britain's Got Talent semi-finals.

Explaining why she pressed the buzzer, Dixon said: “The golden buzzer is such a personal thing and I always say I can only press it when it feels right and you’re such a remarkable young man.”

In 2022, Ravi launched a charity cover of A Million Dreams which featured the likes of Coldplay, Paloma Faith and Bastille.

His family also launched the Dream Week campaign in the House of Commons in January last year to inspire community action and to raise awareness about brain tumours.
