Britain's Got Talent fans in floods of tears over touching mental health dance act

A Britain's Got Talent dance troupe moved fans and judges alike to tears this evening.

House of Swag Kids, a group from Ireland who aged from six to 16, won four yeses from Simon, Amanda, Alesha ans David afer their performance left the theatre totally captivated.

David asked the group what they're about and what stands them out from the crowd.

"We have a message," one of the young lads replied, "About positive mental health."

Another added: "Some of us have been through a lot with mental health, so it's a good way to let it all out when you can't find the words."

"We promote positive mental health through performing arts," they explained.

"This is such a big topic. Everybody in the group has been touched by it.

"You can be so down in the dumps and then other days you can be so happy. It's so hard to talk about it but dancing makes it so much easier.

"We're going to show everybody it's OK not to be OK."

Their performance saw a recording played over their dance, which talked about "feeling scared and alone" at such a young age.

Needless to say, the dance was a big hit, with fans taking to Twitter to let out their admiration for the kids.

One wrote: "The swag kids! What an amazing dance act! Thank you for doing this about #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek it was really good #BGT #BritainsGotTalent."

Another penned: "YES!!! SHINE A LIGHT TO THE FACT THAT CHILDREN CAN SUFFER WITH THEIR MENTAL HEALTH TOO #BritainsGotTalent."

A third tweeted: "Strong message. Well done. #bgt."

The judges were just as moved, Alesha looking like she might shed a tear.

"There was a lot of flavour in that," she told them, "Fantastic audition."

Amanda added: "Kids listen to kids. There's a very strong message here and I can see there's a lot of potential."

Finally, Simon gave his verdict: "You told the story really cleverly. What we're seeing more of this year is younger people coming on and actually educating us, which is amazing.

"You've got the passion!"
