The show goes out at 8pm on ITV. Souparnika, known as Sou, from Bury St Emunds, said: "I really enjoyed being on the BGT stage again.

"I feel so lucky to be a part of the first ever BGT Christmas show , being able to share the stage with amazing stars from previous years. I feel so excited!”

The youngster, who has just celebrated her 11th birthday, is one of a supergroup choir performing the song Somewhere Only We Know with Hungarian shadow theatre group Attraction, the 2013 winners.

Sou wowed the judges with her singing power in the semi-finals of this year's BGT, but just missed out on a place in the final.
