"The performance went down a storm and he has his heart set on releasing music. It's been a life-long dream of his and now that fans have seen him in action, he is hoping to ink a deal soon."

Bruno stole the limelight during the opening of the BBC One show on Saturday.

Bruno has previously admitted he has always been a huge fan of singing, ever since he was growing up.

He said: "We never had the financial resources for me to be trained; instead I learned from watching and mimicking films.

"I always longed to be in the entertainment industry. As a toddler, my uncle put me on the table, switched on the radio and I would dance and entertain people.

"The performing persona that turns on when there's music and singing was always in me."
