BGT nurse who caught coronavirus wows judges with song about saving lives

A nurse who tested positive for coronavirus is set to stun the judges on Britain’s Got Talent tonight with a song about saving lives.

Frontline nurse Beth Porch, who recently recovered from Covid-19 will take to the stage on Saturday where she will sing her original song You Taught Me What Love Is, which was recorded before she tested positive for the deadly virus.

Speaking about her job and the audition Beth began: ‘Obviously it’s very emotionally demanding work. This song was just a way for me to process my feelings at what was a difficult time.’

The 25-year-old became a viral sensation last year when footage of her singing and playing ukulele to a three-year-old child cancer patient emerged online.

Beth went on to explain that her original song was inspired by her time working on the cancer ward Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.

The NHS worker, who has been a nurse for five years, tested positive for COVID-19 after experiencing mild symptoms.

She was forced to take a few weeks off work but is now back to normal after spending time at home to recover.

‘I knew I had it as soon as I started coughing. A hospital tested me because I’m frontline staff… it felt like having the flu so I wasn’t too badly off,’ she continued to The Sun.

Despite wowing the BGT judging panel, Beth admitted that she finds it ‘harder to impress two-year-olds that Simon Cowell’.

She added: ‘Honestly there are some two-year-olds who will cry their eyes out as soon as I start singing. So yeah, it’s honestly harder to impress them than Simon.’

It follows after another 800 people died from contracting coronavirus, taking the UK death toll to more than 14,000.
