Britain's Got Talent favourite who competed 12 times found dead at his home

A BRITAIN’S Got Talent favourite who competed a record 12 times has been found dead at his home.

Magician David Watson, 62, who is close pals with Corrie actor Michael Le Vell, passed away in Altrincham, Gtr Manchester, last Thursday.

Police broke into the property after family raised concerns the retired NHS worker was not responding to calls and messages.

The death is not being treated as suspicious.

A source said: “His family couldn’t get hold of him for a few days.

"He wasn’t picking up and his Whatsapp messages were all still unread.”

David was a familiar face around Altrincham, where he lived alone, and used to join his close friend and Corrie star Le Vell at The Brook pub once a week.

The front door of his £400,000 semi-detached home was boarded up last week where cops had forced entry.
