BRITAIN’S Got Talent won’t show the dancer who took his own life after competing in the ITV show.
Jack Saunders was a member of talented act Green Force Five who won a place in the next round.
Tragically, the 25-year-old was found dead before the audition was aired.
The group have now withdrawn from the show and their performance will not be shown.
A spokesmen told the Mirror: “Green Force 5 have made the decision to withdraw from Britain’s Got Talent and this is fully supported by Jack’s family.
“Our thoughts, of course, remain focussed on Jack’s family and friends.”
Jack with Cheryl behind the scenes of the X FactorJack’s group Green Force Five impressed the BGT judges, receiving the yeses they needed to progress to the next phase.
His mum Sandra, 53, told the Mirror: “We don’t know why he did it, he didn’t leave a note. He did not have depression.
“He went to the GP before Christmas because he was feeling tired and they never spotted any problems.
“It’s just shocked everyone because to other people Jack had it all. Jack achieved more than many people could dream of achieving. He knew we loved him.

YOU'RE NOT ALONE
EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.
It doesn’t discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.
It’s the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.
And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.
Yet it’s rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.
That is why The Sun launched the You’re Not Alone campaign.
The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.
Let’s all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You’re Not Alone.

“I think he was a Lost Boy. He must have felt just like a lost boy bless him.”
The talented dancer had previously appeared on Sky’s Got to Dance, where he reached the finals in 2012, and the X Factor.
He also appeared in the London Olympics opening ceremony aged 18.
A spokesman for Britain’s Got Talent at the time said: “Our thoughts and condolences are with Jack’s family and friends during this difficult and devastating time.”
