Ealing Electrician Makes BGT Final
'Stavros Flatley' wins public vote to go through
Demetri Demetriou, who works for an Ealing based construction firm, is facing a showdown with SuBo after winning the public vote on the latest episode of Britain's Got Talent.
Along with his 12 year-old son Lagi as the Greek-Irish dancing duo ‘Stavros Flatley’ they have won the admiration of Amanda Holden, Piers Morgan and even Simon Cowell with their interpretation of Riverdance. They now have to defeat hot favourite Susan Boyle to be the overall winner.
Despite his national profile, Mr. Demetriou continues to work for the Kier Group which provides property maintenance services but he admits that he is gaining a bit of celebrity.
He said: “Since the show was broadcast I am being recognised by tenants and they always say they think our act was great.
“My colleagues at Kier’s Ealing office have been very supportive and were hoping we would get through the semi-finals. We were completely overwhelmed when we found out we’d won the public vote to get through to the finals on Saturday, our next few days will be non-stop rehearsing”
Mr Demetriou has worked at Kier for eight years and carries out electrical repair and maintenance projects for Ealing Council.
Kier Ealing’s client liaison manager Martin Clifford said: “Demetri is a very popular member of staff at our Ealing contract and also supplies operatives to other London contracts including Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow and Islington. He is a regular contributor to our resident forums and client workshops and it was hilarious to see Demetri and his son on TV – we all loved it and we hope he wins the final.”
