Lagi was 12 when he auditioned for Britain's Got Talent, making him now 24 and he now lives in Cyprus where he runs a barber shop.

The news comes following the announcement that Stavros Flatley had ‘split’ in 2019.

However, the father and son reunited over Christmas for a Britain Got Talent’s special after Simon Cowell requested they take part.

Lagi told Mail Online: "When we got to The Champions, I thought this was the right time to leave. But Simon Cowell told me not to quit forever. So I will return for shows.

He told the publication that he thought they'd taken the act as far as they could, however, it was Simon Cowell who suggested that they leave the door open.

He said: "We’ve done this for 10 years for a joke. We’ve done so many amazing things but what is there left to do? We’ve done the Royal Variety, we’ve played in China, Monaco – everywhere.

"So when we got to The Champions, I thought this was the right time to leave. But Simon Cowell told me not to quit forever," he said.

Indeed, Lagi was back on stage for the recent Britain's Got Talent Christmas special where Stavros Flately performed their famous routine with a topless Ashley Banjo.

Stavros Flately rose to fame with a hilarious take on Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance routine back in 2009.

The pair are believed to have banked £2 million from appearances and performances following their stint on the show.

Earning around £3,500 per performance, they toured around Britain in a campervan, and Lagi even took a year out of school to dedicate himself to the act.

They also continued to pop up on various TV shows and tours over the years since, including Sugar Free Farm and Dress to Impress.

His Dad Demi, who is now 52, continues to perform as Stavros Flatley with his nephew Samson, 18.
