The Fylde Coast school dared to dream but didn't win the £250k prize.

Flakefleet Primary School can hold their heads up high after getting through to the grand final of Britain's Got Talent.

Their space themed rendition of Take That's Rule The World saw the kids dressed as stars, planets, moons, aliens, rockets and even E.T.

David Walliams, who awarded the school his golden buzzer said...

"It was Joyous, it was magical and I would love you to win this so so much."

Alesha Dixon complimented the work that had gone on behind the scenes...

"The costumes are fantastic, great song choice and David's right, you could win this."

Amanda Holden went on an emotional journey... 

"I started crying with laughter..,.and by the end I was actually crying.

"You're an amazing example of brilliant energy, happiness and the future.

"You've been an absolute joy to have on the show."

Simon added...

"I would say you are the most fun act that's ever made it to the final of Britain's Got Talent."

89 year old Chelsea pensioner Colin Thackery ended up scooping the prize after singing Love Changes Everything.

Asked what it would mean for him to sing at the Royal Variety Performance, Thackery said: 

"I served my Queen for 25 years and to think I could sing for her would be the end.

"I could die happy."

Also missing out on the prize was PC Dave Wardell and his retired police dog Finn.

Really though, they are winners as they opened the show by announcing the Queen has signed off on a new law to give service animals greater protection from attack.
