VIDEO: Simon Cowell in tears during emotional reunion with Britain’s Got Talent star after paying for life-changing £175,000 surgery

Simon Cowell was in floods of tears as he was reunited with Britain’s Got Talent hero Julia Carlile two years after paying for her life-changing £175,000 surgery.

Julia shot straight to the BGT semi-finals with dance troupe MerseyGirls after telling judges Simon, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon she was hoping to use the £250,000 prize money to pay for an operation to correct her spine, and subsequently save her career.

After the group lost out, Simon flew Julia out to the USA so she could get the procedure she needed.

Two years later, the 17-year-old was back on stage for Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions, back flipping across the stage at London’s Wembley Arena, prompting the music mogul to sob.

According to The Sun, Amanda pushed her co-star to say some words before he choked up.

‘All I want to talk about is one person’s strength and, beyond that, the friendship and support you all have, which we saw the first time we met you,’ he began, before his voice cracked.
‘To see you able to come back tonight…it just means everything.’ Alesha gave MerseyGirls her Golden Buzzer back in 2017 so was just as moved by their epic comeback.
She added: ‘That just made my heart soar.
Simon, I love you, I love what you’ve done for her.’
‘I thought that now I would be at home not dancing for the rest of my life,’ Julia enthused.
‘But here I am back flipping with my best friends. ‘I couldn’t walk two years ago and now I am here.
‘Simon, thank you so much.

I don’t think I have ever been so happy as I am right now.’ confirmed MerseyGirls would be joining the first ever all-star series of Britain’s Got Talent, where they will battle it out with the likes of Colin Thackery, Ashley and Sully, Stavros Flatley and magician Richard Jones.

Susan Boyle, however, has been forced to withdraw from the competition over scheduling conflicts. Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions is expected to air on ITV later this year.
