Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News -

COLIN Thack­ery may have won Bri­tain’s Got Ta­lent, but he showed he is not let­ting fame go to his head as he picked up his own gro­ceries.

Af­ter his su­per­mar­ket trip, the war veteran, 89, hopped on the bus, de­spite bag­ging a £250,000 prize in the ITV ta­lent show last week.

Smartly dressed in a dark uni­form, the kindly Chelsea Pen­sioner was happy to chat to fans who were de­lighted to see him out in Lon­don.

Colin lives at the vet­er­ans’ res­i­dence Royal Hos­pi­tal Chelsea, in South West Lon­don, which he says he plans to do­nate all of his prize money to.

He will sing at Royal Va­ri­ety Per­for­mance, as part of his prize for win­ning BGT this year.
