And this time the former Brompton Academy and MidKent College student announced: “The drinks are on me.”

"Of course he can go all the way now. He’s achieved this through hard work and listening to others" - Tim Robinson, of The Barge

Among the first to hug him were mum Sharla, 43, dad Matt, 45, and sister Jessica, 17, who have followed him through every stage of the contest.

Tim Robinson, from The Barge, remembers Jamie’s first open-mic performance.
